Why do we snooze the alarms?Many of us are in habit of snoozing the alarm after it rings and sleep again. We are not satisfied until we snooze the alarm once or twice before getting up. Sometimes I wonder what might be the reason behind snoozing the alarms and I imagined below reasons.
The most simple reason from common sense is that we fear that we will sleep again after we stop the alarm and hence we prefer to snooze it so that it again rings after 5 or 10 mins and reminds us to wake up.
Other reason can be that we hate to get up straight away from a deep sleep when the alarm rings. Snoozing provides some cushion time to slowly get out from our sleep and get comfortable to wake up.
Many times it's a question of our satisfaction and psychology. When we snooze the alarm 2 to 3 times before waking up we feel that we have overslept beyond our wake up timings and now it's high time to wake up. Many people purposely put alarm early to leave the buffer time for snoozing the alarms.
Sometimes it's just a habit we develop and for some people sleep after snoozing the alarms is most relaxing one. People even snooze the alarms subconsciously in half sleep state.
So are you an alarm snoozer?
