News post – Catch-23 No. 944 Snoozed

This comic strip began with Kate saying something different (and lifted from real life) but I’m going to keep it to myself as I may use it in another strip.

Hitting snooze is indeed bad for you – it can leave you groggy for longer and can break the association between your alarm going off and actually needing to wake up. The grogginess – also known as sleep inertia – affects your decision-making, your memory and the performance of even simple tasks and can take hours to shake off.

The solution to chronic snoozing? Put the alarm clock out of reach so you have to get out of bed to turn it off.
