New research has revealed that spending some extra time in bed before waking up may lead to health problems, after the study found that 6 out of 10 people press the snooze button, and the study said that pressing the snooze button when the morning alarm rings is a temptation that many of us find. Difficult to resist, but it may not be a good idea, and a comprehensive study concluded that if you fall asleep, you really lose.
Researchers have found that those who set a series of alarms to wake them up in the morning are more likely to have a higher heart rate compared to those who get out of bed after the alarm goes off only once. Persistently high levels have a number of negative health effects, including diabetes and heart disease.
Researchers from the University of Notre Dame in the US also discovered that napping is more likely to spend the last hour before waking in light sleep, compared to deeper sleep enjoyed by non-snoozers, and among 450 participants, 57% admitted to snoozing for some extra time in bed each morning, with women 12% more likely than men to do so.
In another separate study, researchers found that seven out of ten cases of heart disease and stroke are preventable by a good night’s sleep, and scientists at the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research tracked more than 7,000 healthy adults between the ages of 50 and 75 for ten years. For years, they found that only one in 10 slept well on a regular basis, and those who did had a 75% lower risk of heart disease or stroke than did the sleepers.
In the US study, feeling unable to wake up from a single alarm was the most common reason for falling asleep in the morning, closely followed by those who said they felt very restless to wake up. The average time spent in bed after the first alarm went off was nearly Half an hour for those who fall asleep, compared to nine minutes for those who set an alarm only.
The alarm clock recommended by the experts
The study says that younger people are more likely to fall asleep, while the fact that snoozing tends to take fewer daily steps may lead to laziness. And as anyone knows who has done the same thing, they are almost twice as likely to be late for work.
Despite regular warnings from sleep experts to keep cell phones out of our bedrooms, the results show that phones are used as alarms four times more than traditional clocks, and participants were more likely to use their phones’ “snooze function” – which issues a nine-minute follow-up alarm to users iPhone, or five to ten minutes for Android devices instead of setting a custom alarm after waking up.
Sleep expert Dr. Neil Stanley said: ‘Your body hates to wake up to the alarm, your heart rate increases and your stress hormones rise. It just feels a little weird to do this to your body so frequently in the morning.’
Dr Neil Stanley added: “Consistent and uninterrupted sleep was much more beneficial than frequent interruptions by many alarms,” and said that “a person is unlikely to return to deep sleep after being awakened by the first alarm.” The sleep expert recommends an old alarm clock. The model is without a snooze function and put it away from the bed to force yourself to get up.
