A psychology expert has crafted a list of songs designed to make waking as easy as possible

How many times did you hit snooze this morning before finally rolling out of bed? One 2014 survey found that more than one third of American adults hit the snooze button at least three times each morning. Additionally, more than half of people ages 25 to 34 press snooze daily. But research shows that using the snooze button as a way to gently wake yourself up is actually bad for your health. It can mess up your circadian rhythms and damage your ability to sleep through the night. It can also lead to you having less energy and feeling tired all day long. According to researchers, it’s much better to use a method of waking yourself up that doesn’t take such a toll on your body, and one PhD psychology candidate thinks he’s found the solution. Doctoral student David M. Greenburg has curated a Spotify playlist meant to ease the transition from sleep to wakefulness each morning.
