Here's What That Snooze Button Is Really Doing For Your Sleep

It's time to lose the snooze.
When your alarm goes off in the morning, are you ever tempted to hit snooze? Do you often allow yourself an extra seven minutes, or fifteen, or forty...? Well it turns out that those extra moments of shuteye might actually be hurting more than they help.
 
Both the length and the quality of the sleep we get impact how refreshed or groggy we feel once we rise-and-shine. We explore the effects that hitting the snooze has on your overall sleep and offer tips and suggestions for the best ways to maximize your Zzz.
 
Check out the video above that we created in partnership with Sleep Number to find out more. Your well-rested body will thank you for it!
