The 9-minute snooze is a product of mechanical clock engineering and digital clocks have followed suit since.

Mechanical clock engineers had to configure clock gears to work with the clock's other gears. They had two choices - to set the snooze for either a little more than nine minutes, or a little more than 10 minutes. Clock makers decided on the 9-minute gear, believing 10+ minutes would be too long and allow someone to fall into a deep sleep.

Clock manufacturers today have the option to set snooze buttons at any length but it is most stick with the 9-minute custom.

The night before I work.. I make sure to have my clothes picked out, and ironed. Just so there is less pressure in the morning, and if I oversleep its okay! Also I set my coffee on a timer. My alarm clock I set a couple minutes earlier than I need to get up so I can use the snooze button. It always feels good to press that snooze button! Also if I plan on bringing a snack or a lunch... I prepare it the night before! Always plan ahead of time it only helps you in the long run! =) I can only say that what sometimes feels good, is not so good for you. The snooze button is counterproductiove. Get up and get-er-done
