Snooze you lose

Ah, ye olde snooze alarm. BAM! Seven more minutes of bliss. BAM!

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.
