10 Benefits of Not Waking Up to an Alarm

    1. You don't mess with the body's natural concentration of melatonin.

    2. You are leaner because waking to an alarm clock is literally making you fat.

    3. You're less angry at the world when first waking up.

    4. You are not sleep deprived as regular use of the alarm clock leads to chronic sleep deprivation.

    5. You experience less grogginess during the day.

    6. You feel less of a need to take a midday nap.

    7. Waking up naturally allows for lower blood pressure and heart rate.

    8. It can boost your productivity.

    9. Waking without an alarm allows you to start the day with less stress.

    10. You are less likely to require caffeine first thing in the morning.
