The snooze button seems like a remedy for a bad morning, when you give yourself some time to nestle up in your cozy bed for a couple of minutes. Don’t get into that trap: this trick only makes you groggier and grumpier. The snooze button makes your body believe you’re gonna sleep some more, so it obviously enters another sleep cycle. This way, it starts releasing sleep hormones that won’t make you feel any peppier. If you get out of your bed right after the alarm goes off, your doziness won’t last over 30 minutes. Instead, getting up after even a short lie-in gets you 4 hours of sleepiness. Not a fresh start.

The secret behind this deception is called food styling, and it’s a technique used by photographers to make us taste through our eyes.
When it comes to storing products, there are lots of nuances we have to consider to keep food fresh, safe, and delicious for as long as possible.
