|The first alarm clock with a snooze button came out in 1959. And whoever came up with the idea was obviously a GENIUS . . . but they've also stolen hundreds of hours of your life!|
According to a new study, the average person spends 14 minutes a day hitting snooze. That's about 1 hour and 38 minutes a week if you count weekends...or just under 85 hours a YEAR! And if you factor in life expectancy, it means you'll waste somewhere around 173 DAYS of your life hitting snooze.
The survey also found the average person gets 6 hours and 36 minutes of sleep a night, sets their alarm for 6:58 A.M., and finally gets out of bed at 7:12. And about one-third of people now use their PHONE as their alarm clock.
Both Murphy & Meg hit "snooze" for about DOUBLE the average number of minutes! But that's almost an extra YEAR'S worth of sleep during their lifetimes. And is it ever WORTH it!
