Beware! Neuroscientists confirmed it: using the snooze button spoils your rest!

Among the many different mistakes we commit, which could compromise our rest, using the snooze button on our alarm clock is one of the worst!Beware! Neuroscientists confirmed it: using the snooze button spoils your rest!Repeatedly using the snooze function on our alarm clock, as well as setting several alarms within a few minutes, can cause heavy damage to our rest and therefore to our body.

Why shouldn’t you use the snooze button?

Professor Matthew Walker from the Centre for Human Sleep Science at the University of California warns: “When the alarm goes off, our heart suffers a small shock and we suddenly wake up. By repeatedly activating the snooze function, we inflict this shock on our heart over and over again”.

Moreover, every time we fall back to sleep, our body begins a new sleep cycle which is then repeatedly interrupted after a few minutes!

Our body gets confused as it’s unable to understand whether that alarm signal is definitive or not!

Don’t get “sleep-drunk”!

Dr. Chris Winter, a well-known American neurologist, defines the phenomenon of “sleep-drunknness” as a real pathology that could affect those who misuse the snooze button: disorientation, dizziness and a drowsiness feeling accompanies sleep-drunk people throughout the whole day.

And besides, take care of your waistline!

At night, the hormone that regulates our sense of appetite, ghrelin, is produced in smaller quantities and increases as soon as we wake up.

Waking up and falling asleep again and again could compromise the regular production of this hormone, possibly anticipating its release and thus triggering night-time hunger that could wake you up forcing you to eat in the middle of the night!

Going to sleep always at the same time, following a resting ritual, sleeping at least seven hours a night and doing it on a bed system that suits your physical features will help you get the most out of your sleep and wake up feeling active each morning without the need to “postpone” your alarm!
