It's important to understand why we are using the snooze button in the first place.

  • If a person is not breathing well during sleep (snoring or sleep apnea), this will disturb the normal sequences and cause the individual to awaken feeling unrestored.
  • Sleep quality can be diminished by the use of electronic devices, tobacco or alcohol in the evening. 

Our natural body clock regulates functions through what's known as circadian rhythms: physical, mental and behavioral changes that follow a daily cycle.
