The Snooze Button Won’t Make You Feel Rested

9 October 2011 No Comment

Probably one of the most used and overly abused “apps”  or buttons is not one of the newly released on the latest iPad or the like;  no, it’s the good, old fashion snooze button on your alarm clock.  Many, if not all, have been guilty of hitting the snooze button “just one more time, for a couple of more minutes of rest”.  But, honestly, how many times have you felt a difference in your energy levels after hitting the snooze button?

Muscle & Fitness not too long ago published, “You may find it difficult to lift early before work, but a new study from Appalachian State University shows that training in the morning is best for your sleep cycle.  Subjects who exercised in the morning spent 85% more time in light sleep and 75% more time in deep sleep over subjects who trained in the evening.  Once you get into the habit of hitting the gym early, you’ll be happy you did.”
