I have to agree with Catherine on the futility of snooze alarms. I’ve never understood how someone could lull themselves into sleeping 7 minutes longer, but then I also don’t understand people who set their clocks ahead in order to be not late. I’m not capable of fooling myself like that.

As for snooze alarms in particular, if you can get up later and still make it where you need to go on time, just set the clock later. If you happen to awaken before the alarm, there’s no harm done. If you sleep until the alarm goes off, you know you need to move it, like right now. Maybe if I were someone who required 45 minutes and two cups of coffee in the morning before I could leave my door, the snooze alarm concept would make more sense to me…

    I both use the snooze *and* set the clock ahead on purpose. I don’t know why. But it works. 🙂

    I use the set the clock ahead technique…at 5am, when I have to wake up, I forget it’s like that, and then when I hit the snooze, and discover later that “it’s time to get the hell up right now”, I jump out of bed and get moving….only to find I’m actually right on time. I have to do it because I’m TOTALLY not a morning person. I can’t just jump up and go, I have to resort to these tricks to create panic so I’ll get up and moving.

    So you both are capable of fooling yourselves. Interesting…
