Want a bit more sleep? Hitting that snooze button isn’t always bad, study finds

The snooze button has gotten a bad rap over the years — but a new study published in the Journal of Sleep Research suggests that snoozing doesn’t always mean losing.

Researchers from Stockholm University in Sweden found that stealing that extra few minutes of sleep could actually support the waking process.

Participants were evaluated in two separate studies, according to a press release from the university.

“If you snooze and you’re more alert when you get behind the wheel to go to work, that might be a benefit and a useful one. If it reduces dependence on caffeine, that’s another.”
