Here's some bad news if you're someone who is in the habit of hitting the snooze button every morning: those precious extra minutes of sleep add up.

A new study found that people are wasting their lives, nine minutes at a time. By hitting the snooze button, you could be losing up to six entire days every year.

Around 36% of people hit the snooze button an average of four times every morning. Each time the snooze button gets hit is another nine minutes.

Adding the 36 minutes up over a standard working year of 48 weeks, you get six whole days. But is anybody really complaining about getting six days of extra sleep?
