We’re all for trying to take a positive look at change, to look forward to the changing of the season and the new challenges and experiences coming up after the summer. It’s not easy to look forward to the ‘back to school’ and ‘back to work’ dates, we know, but we’re here to help out if we can. How about not having the thought of that annoying alarm screaming out and sending you back to the real world with a jolt? Why not ease into the working or school day in a calm, serene and natural way with a mood light and nature sounds, set to suit your own preferences and levels that work for you?
The Denver CRL-310 sunrise alarm clock wake up light at £29.99 +P&P, does just that and helps to ease us back in to the working week, every week, here at 3wisemonkeys. There are hundreds of studies and articles on the benefits of sunlight and the release of the serotonin hormone, which is associated with keeping us calm and focused. It’s not always sunny here in the UK, to state the obvious, so we’ve been using our trusty sunrise alarm clock to give us a little boost each day anyway. The theory being that a wake-up light helps to simulate dawn when with the rising of the sun, our body produces serotonin the feel-good hormone. The idea being that our state of sleepiness and the melatonin hormone that makes us sleepy is replaced by serotonin and we are eased nicely in to the day, whatever the season.
The Denver CRL-310 sunrise alarm clock wake up light is a great value bedroom gadget that features a built-in mood light and variety of nature sounds. You can choose to wake up in a calmly lit room with the mood light coming on at the right level for you, with 10 levels to choose from, 30 minutes before the alarm sound goes off. You can choose from the soothing natural sounds of a waterfall cave, forest bird calls or bubbling hot springs, set the radio on a soothing station to ease you into the day, or if you really do need a sharp kick to get you up, set the buzzer. The go-to-sleep function enables you to peacefully drift off to sleep with a soothing light and perhaps the sound of your favourite radio station, switching off after 90 minutes. The round design looks great, the adjustable LED display clearly shows the time, calendar and room temperature and the adjustable light can be used for reading too.
So this might be just the little helper you need, to get ready for the new season and the positive experiences that I’m sure Autumn will bring.
