“ A snooze button is a poor substitute for no alarm at all.” – Stephen Hawking 

You know, most times than not by you hitting that snooze button you’re doing more harm than good in relation to becoming more productive. 

bit of Sleep knowledge… When we sleep, we go through numerous sleep cycles. These usually range from 90minutes – 2 hours. Right when you start to wake up your body gets out of these cycles and starts to go into “awake mode.” 

So ultimately, when you hit the “snooze” button for another 5…10…15-minutes and fall back to sleep, what you’re doing is confusing your brain by putting it back into sleep mode (which as we said above lasts roughly from 90minutes – 2 hours) that’s why we usually wake up feeling extra tired or super groggy after we hit the snooze button. 

A simple trick I used to stop myself from hitting Snooze was to place my phone/alarm in a place that was OUT of arms reach, So I placed my phone in a place that would force me to have to get up and turn it off. 

As soon as you physically have to get up, 9 times out of 10 you will probably stay awake! 

Not so much another trick to stopping you hit that snooze button, but something else I find beneficial is the night before you go to bed, write down your schedule for the following day. 
This way, when your alarms goes off you’ve got your entire day planned out and ready to take action. 

And I’ll leave you with this quote…Which I feel like we can always relate to in those times when we have snoozed our alarm because we “need more sleep” but then it causes a bit of chaos/stress when it comes time to get up. 

“Lose an hour in the morning and you will be all day hunting for it. “ – Richard Whately
