I never realized that snoozing for a few more minutes after waking up doesn't really help you get energized and ward off morning sluggishness until I've read it in Health. I've always thought that those extra shut-eyes are really helpful because you get to sleep for some more. It turns out that it'll only make you feel more sleepy. The author suggests to set your clock for the time you really have to wake up instead of hitting snooze.
I might as well just get up. :-)
I used to have a rooster alarm clock. I think my husband disabled it, honestly... but that was always my favorite. The only side effect was when I traveled to the Philippines, where roosters are everywhere & crow ALL NIGHT LONG, so I was contantly snapping wide awake at all hours of the night, OL>
