Use the snooze button
Often you get the feeling early in the morning that you literally need “only five minutes” to really sleep.
However, as sleep expert Timothy Morgenthaler told NewsABC.net, most specialists agree that simply trying the snooze button again isn’t a good idea.
This is partly because you can go back to a deep sleep phase by pressing the snooze button. This starts a sleep cycle that you can no longer end and is very likely to be more tired than recovered when you wake up.
In our video, sleep scientists explain what happens to our bodies if we close our eyes “briefly” every morning – and how we can get rid of this bad habit once and for all.
