Sunrise Alarm Clocks

We all dread the annoying sound of our morning alarm clock, not only because it is loud and obnoxious, but because it isn't a natural way of waking from sleep. Most of us have a hard time waking in the morning, and while sleep deprivation (yes, most of us are sleep deprived) accounts for some of this, fighting our natural rhythms and traditional triggers for waking up also contributes to the problem. Sunlight alarm clocks attempt to solve this issue by mimicking how we used to wake upólong before commutes, bosses, and sixty hour weeks.

Waking with the sunrise has been a part of human history for thousands of years, and it has only been until very recently that we have had to fight our natural tendency to wake with the sun. Fighting this natural alarm clock has contributed to a variety of health issues. Studies from the National Institute of Health shown that waking up with light helps those with sleep disorders, Seasonal Affective Disorder, and a variety of forms of depression, and helps us all to increase our energy levels throughout the day.

There are a variety of sunlight alarm clocks that mimic the natural sunrise, many of these are packed with features. Most of the sunlight alarm clocks also help you fall asleep by dimming the lights over a period of time, which also mimics our natural desire to fall asleep as the sun sets. A few of these alarm clocks also feature nature sounds, or white noise to cancel out distractions that may cause us difficulty when falling asleep.
