Light alarm clocks or sunrise alarm clocks (also called dawn/dusk simulators) have incredible benefits that individuals who are looking to purchase one can tap into.
Each one is much more than just an alarm clock, although they obviously have the same benefits that a regular alarm clock has in that they offer an excellent wake-up call, will give you the time and will ensure that you are up in time for work as long as you do not press the snooze button!
So what benefits do natural light alarm clocks offer you?
Well, the following points will tell you exactly what benefits you will be able to enjoy if you invest in a wake-up light alarm clock:
Sunrise alarm clocks offer a pleasant waking up method that is gentle and does not rush the body’s natural responses. As a loud, piercing noise will jolt you out of your sleep and disrupt your body’s natural rhythms, a natural light alarm clock will slowly heighten your body’s awareness and reactions so it is a much better experience and gets you going slowly but more effectively.
A wake-up light improves the quality of waking up in that it allows the whole stretching, yawning, and smiling routine that you see in adverts on TV every single morning. It is possible to achieve happiness on waking and that is exactly what happens here.
Whether you want to wake up with the sounds of nature or your favorite radio station, most light alarm clock options allow you to do so by providing a range of programming options for you to choose from. Some even allow you to download your favorite sounds from a specific website and add them to your alarm so you can get the exact wake-up experience you want.
Many wake-up lights have numerous lighting settings so that you can choose the one that best suits your body. The whole idea that you can personalize it means that you can decide what is best for you rather than having some guy in a factory do it for you.
You will wake up in a better mood and happy for the majority of the time. Why? Because having sleep rudely disrupted in any way, shape or form often puts individuals in a bad mood but waking up slowly and gently will put a smile on your face.
A natural light alarm clock can help to alleviate ailments and problems like SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), which is a form of depression as individuals get winter or summer blues as a result of the changing seasons. Natural light can help to lift your mood and so may reduce symptoms.
It can also help you to get over jet lag if you have just arrived home after a long journey and want to recover from the time difference as soon as possible. Using natural light is an excellent way to do this and acclimatize your body quickly.
This list of benefits for wake up lights is by no means exhaustive but it does highlight why getting one is such a good idea. As more are developed and sold, there are bound to be additional benefits so this is the absolute minimum that you should expect.
