It’s a Waste!
In Success Made Easy I suggest that you “Get rid of the snooze buttons in your life.” I think that the “Snooze Button” is one of the worst, yet most popular inventions ever. Everyone knows how they work; you decide what time you need to get up and then set the alarm six minutes earlier than that so you can get another six minutes of sleep after it goes off. Some people set it 12 minutes earlier to allow an added 12 minutes.
Chances are that you were in a deep sleep when the alarm rang and while hitting the snooze button may appear to feel good, the reality is that it won’t be the same as another six minutes of true “deep sleep” would be.
Six, 12, 18, 24 or More
Most, if not all snooze buttons are set at six minutes allowing one to sleep another six, twelve 18 or more hours. I have found that I am better off setting the alarm for the time I NEED TO get up and then GET UP when it goes off, regardless how much I might feel like staying in bed.
Unless you have nothing better to do than hang out all day, like some creatures I know, then time spent getting a jump on the day is a better way to go. And in that case there’s no need for an alarm clock at all.
