Snooze you lose
A new Turner website called upwave.com says the beloved button is actually bad for you.
If you get back into sleep mode for a short time, you are groggier, and less productive.
First, says one sleep guy, your little dab of sleep is of poor quality. But you also start yourself back into a sleep cycle that you don't finish. This upsets you throughout the day.
You will get (ominous music) sleep inertia.
It can take more than an hour--even with a shower--to shake off sleep inertia.
Better to get enough quality sleep--no electronics, dark room, enough hours. Put your clock where you have to get up to turn it off.
Then get up.
Aw, what to these people know anyhow. By the way--this upwave thing? They say they will "entertain the health right into you." I thought that was my job.
