Since time began, humans have learned to respond to the rising dawn by slowly waking up. Today, however, we tend to startle ourselves awake with an abrupt alarm call that can leave us feeling weary and irritable all day. Fortunately, with these ingenious gradual sunrise alarm clocks, we can return to the natural way to wake.
The Lumie Bodyclock Active is a sunrise alarm clock that imitates a sunrise effect beside your bed - from the first faint glimmer of dawn, gradually increasing in brightness until you gently wake up the way nature intended, fresh and alert with your body clock perfectly synchronised.
The brightening light is a natural cue for your body to reduce the production of sleep hormones (e.g. melatonin) and gradually increase the levels of those that help you get up and go (e.g. cortisol).
Waking with the light every day will help to keep your sleep/wake cycle on track and has shown to boost your mood, productivity and energy levels for the rest of the day.
3 Different Alarm Sound Settings
The Lumie Bodyclock Active 250 features 3 sound settings for the alarm:
- White noise which can mask sounds which might have kept you awake
- Dawn chorus or rooster call sounds to enhance your sunrise
- Wave sounds to lull you to sleep
