Don't Push The Snooze Button

We should follow the alarm that is set, and get up at the time. If it is slightly difficult, you can set up multiple alarms in the initial mornings, but do not hit the snooze button while half asleep. That’s cheating.

If you have trouble sleeping due to sleep apnea or are showing signs of insomnia, do consult a sleep specialist.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Our bodies follow a certain circadian rhythm that relies on us following a consistent sleeping time.

One can use the morning sunrise as an anchor to your wake time. Having a fixed time also builds a sleep drive gradually, as the body gets in the habit of falling asleep at the same time at night.

How To Sleep Better
  • Many people have trouble sleeping and need to set a path toward better sleep.
  • The first step to the path is to wake up at the same time every day, including weekends.
  • It does not matter what time you decide to wake up, as different people have different lifestyles and sleeping patterns.
  1. Less sleep inertia and an easier transition from sleep.
  2. Easier to fall asleep, with less sleep depravity or need for naps.

Sleep Inertia
  1. It’s not unusual to wake up feeling a bit groggy. For many people, it’s nothing a cup of coffee or shower can’t fix.
  2. Chances are, your morning grogginess is just sleep inertia, which is a normal part of the waking process. Your brain typically doesn’t instantly wake up after sleeping. It transitions gradually to a wakeful state.
  3. During this transition period, you may feel groggy or disoriented. If you aren’t careful, you can easily fall back asleep.
  4. Sleep inertia slows down your motor and cognitive skills, which is why it sometimes feels impossible to do anything right after you wake up.
