If you’re not really a morning person, Bodyclock Starter 30 is just the thing. It’s an alarm clock that wakes you with a sunrise, gradually brightening over 30 minutes so when you open your eyes you feel properly awake and refreshed. Waking with light helps to regulate your sleep/wake cycle and has even been shown to boost mood, energy and productivity levels.
There’s a snooze feature and an optional alarm beep – in case you think you’ll need more than just the light – but most people turn this off after a few days, preferring to wake up to the light on its own.
As well as the wake-up sunrise, Bodyclock Starter 30 also has a 30-minute sunset that works in the opposite way, helping you to naturally wind down ready for bed.
A wake-up light like Bodyclock Starter 30 is not just a much nicer way to start the day. It can help beat the winter blues and is a useful complement to a lightbox in treating SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). The British Swimming team use Lumie Bodyclock to get them up bright and early for training on dark, winter mornings.
