Sunlight Alarm Clock - What So Great About Them?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

A Sunlight Alarm Clock is an alarm clock that not only uses sound to wake you up in the morning, a sunrise alarm clock combines both sound and light so that you can wake up more naturally and comfortable in the morning.

The way this works is that the light starts before your set wake up time, say you set the alarm clock to wake you up at 08:00, then the light starts to shine at 07.30, but at this early level the light is very low intensity and most people do not wake up with this little light. The alarm clock continues to gradually increase the brightness of the light untill 08:00 which is your set wake up time, And at 08.00 the sound also comes on to assure that you wake up, but the sounds from a sunlight alarm clock is much more soothing and pleasant than the one you are used to, you can get sounds like waves, birds, frogs, jungle drums and more. The sound also increases gradually.

What this does to your body is what naturally happens when the sun rises and wakes you up naturally, The light that gradually increase, is sensed by your brain long before you actually wake up, this triggers your brain to starts producing a hormone called Cortisol, which is know as the "energy hormone", this is what controls if you are sleepy or not. So when you finally wake up from the light, or the light and sound combined, your hormones is at more natural and comfortable level, and you feel less sleepy in the morning.

I have a sunlight alarm clock myself and i must say that I am amazed about how comfortable the mornings are when i use it, especially when i compare it to my old beeping alarm clock. And the sunlight alarm clock also has more uses, they can also be used as a bedside or reading light on your nightstand, this way you get both a very comfortable alarm clock, and a stylish bedside light in one device.

When i got mine i quickly got rid of both my old alarm clock and i took down the ugly bedside light i had on the wall behind my bed, and i am very happy with both the looks and the effectiveness of my new sunlight alarm clock. I can honestly say that i will not ever go back to the old, sound only alarm clocks, because these mornings is something i do not want to lose!
