Alarm clock makers might disagree; but human beings haven’t evolved to spring awake at the sound of a clattering bell or digital beep. So why not wake yourself the way nature intended with the Lumie Bodyclock Active 250. This helpful digital clock will simulate a sunrise in your bedroom – even on a cold and drizzly winter morning – prompting your body to slow the production of sleep-inducing hormone melatonin and flooding your system with get-up-and-go cortisol (it says here).
More pleasant (and effective) than being shocked awake in a pitch black bedroom, this simple system will ease you back into the land of the living over 15, 20, 30, 45, 60 or 90 minutes. There’s a radio function, but for those that prefer a gentler wake-up call you can also set it to a dawn chorus of birds, or a single cock-crow. Thanks to Lumie Bodyclock Active 250 you can wake up with a smile on your face – bright, alert and ready for the day. How’s that for a dream come true?
Likewise, when you’re ready for bed, this clock can also treat you to a gentle, relaxing sunset. Soothing you to sleep, it’ll play the sounds of waves gently lapping on a beach or fill your room with sound-muffling white noise – great for drowning out the sound of traffic or loud neighbours. Set the timer to 15, 20, 30, 45, 60 or 90 minutes and the sounds and light will gently fade away as you drift off. *Yaaaawn*
