You may think that snoozing helps you fit in a few more precious minutes of sleep, but in reality you're not getting any quality sleep once the alarm rings. That jarring buzz increases the amount of adrenaline in your body and "that adrenaline rush is what causes grogginess," Julia says. If you can, invest in a more natural way of waking up, like a vibrating alarm (in addition to the Lark, fitness monitors like the Jawbone Up and Fitbit have this option) or an alarm that wakes you with light instead of noise.
