Alarm Every Ten Minutes? No, It’s Not a Good Idea

If you’re one of those people who has five alarm clocks to play to get out of bed, you should know that this is not a good idea.Sleep and tiredness will accompany you throughout the day.

Part of that group of people who think that schedule the alarm for 10 minutes to 10:00 pm will help wake up better and gradually, think again. New studies came to reaffirm that, in this way, the sleep will be your shadow during the rest of the day.

According to several experts, constantly wake up and fall asleep with several alarm clocks is not beneficial. In fact, the only thing to do is leave your brain confused. This confusion between the awakening and sleep leads to the ‘inertia of sleep’, as it is known, is completely changed.

To explain this mechanism, the ASAP Science released a video titled ‘ Should You Use The SNOOZE Button? ‘ [We should press the ‘ mute ‘ button?]. In the video we see a kind of internal alarm clock that gradually, if you’re ready for awakening of your sleep cycle.When we put external alarm clocks, we’re making our natural alarm clock to wake up in advance. When we delay and postpone this same alarm, we are saying to our body that we can start a new cycle of sleep. But it will not be completed.

As explains El Español, the button ‘ mute ‘ ends up becoming a vicious circle. Each time the alarm clock rings and rings again, the feeling of sleep and tiredness increase instead of decrease. As the video explains, the consequences of this bad habit are: persistent sleepiness throughout the day; lack of efficiency in the tasks performed and difficulty concentrating.

To stand up with energy, we need to create a sleep routine. For example, go to bed at the same time and getting up at the same time, with only an alarm. This routine should be carried out even on the weekend, for the body to get used to. Other tricks can also help, such as let the shutters ajar.
