When I'm 16- I've been accusing it for years that I needed extra beauty sleep to get through puberty. In college, I blamed all overnight people for writing papers (okay and party). After college, I was attributed to the first phase of adjustment for adults Today? Well … I have no excuses.
The truth: Until I drank a 1
I'm not saying that this thing looks magical because I occasionally sleep in the morning through a morning workout. But since I switched to Philips Wake-Up Light (two and a half years ago), it's less traumatic to wake up every morning. (Note: This is not quite bright enough to be considered an SAD light therapy lamp.)
That's why it's special: Both the light and the alarm sound slowly slow down the closer you get to your wake-up time. The display turns red first, then warm orange and light yellow, and the alarm of your choice gently rises from the silence of the night. Their choices range from chirping birds to melodic piano music – far from the shabby blur of the xylophone iPhone ringtone you've heard too often. Instead, you're bathed in a warm light, as if your bedroom actually had lots of natural light (in NYC?) In my dreams … literally, while a forest of Snow White – animals off The surroundings show up for your morning work and welcome you with a breakfast in bed. (I think I can persuade the city's rats and cockroaches to do the same?)
Both sensations are slow, so there's no wake-up panic that occurs when your phone or the other alarm goes right on full volume shoots. Translation: You wake up on the better side, I do not want to kill someone. (Who knows, maybe this Zen Awakening even inspires you to be one of those insanely productive morning meditators.)
However, my favorite feature is the slumber button. That's because is not a button. Instead, you can tap the clock to disable the alarm for another five to ten minutes. Heck, I even missed the clock and hit my bedside table hard enough, and it did the trick. Somehow, it has not often made me slumber more but has just eliminated all the half-asleep where the things frustrations are.
It will reset you at Amazon for $ 100 – but, hey, if it saves you from missing some workouts and charging a cancellation fee? It completely compensates. And happy mornings will definitely make for a happier day, and that's priceless.
