In the news: Go ahead, hit the snooze button!

 
Ever wonder why you're always about to fall asleep at school, even on those nights where you got extra hours of zzz's?  Don’t blame your math teacher’s monotonous drone. The New York Times' C. Caiborne Ray is letting you in on the sleepy-time secret.


According to Dr. Ana C. Krieger, how well you sleep and how much you need depend on your genetics.  Your inherited snooze patterns determine whether you're the kind of person who could sleep through an earthquake, or the sort who wakes up at the sound of your sibs tip-toeing down the hallway. Not to mention, whether or not you can get by on 6 hours of sleep or if you're utterly exhausted without 10 hours.

Are you a longer sleeper? Krieger recommends adding an extra hour or two to your downtime…and to curb night owl tendencies so you don’t miss out on your entire weekend thanks to a Saturday snoozefest.
