This is THE Stress-Free Way to Start The Day Off Right

 Did you know that how you start you day can affect your stress levels?

Scientific studies have shown that the more abruptly we wake, the more tired we are throughout the day. Because of our evolutionary history, we are used to waking up with the sun, as it gradually lightens the sky and draws us out of sleep.

These days, most people set an alarm to wake themselves up, which rips you out of sleep, rather than carefully wakening you. That is NOT the way to start the day off right!!

What’s wrong with being woken suddenly? Our body has natural rhythms and cycles that it adheres to very strictly when we sleep, this is called the REM cycle, and it dictates how deeply and how soundly we sleep.

There are some points in the cycle that we are more deeply asleep than others, and if we are woken during one of these deep points, we will be groggy, grouchy, and stressed-out, because our bodies were not yet ready to wake up. As we continue to use a traditional alarm clock, not taking account for our natural sleep rhythms, we become more tired, more stressed out, and less willing to get up in the morning.

There is a way to break the cycle, however, and wake stress-free and naturally. It is called the “Wake-up Light,” by Phillips, and uses gradual lights and sounds to lull you out of sleep, along with your natural cycle. No matter what time of the day you have to wake up, the Philips Hf3470 Wake-up Light simulates the natural rising of the sun, and allows the body to wake up without harsh sounds or flashing lights, which will damage the sleep cycle.

This product has undergone rigorous testing, comparing it with alarm clocks of all kinds, while measuring a person’s REM cycles. The Wake-up Light is prove to not disrupt the cycle, instead, starting off with a dim light and quiet sounds, gradually increasing both the amount of light and the volume of the sound, which signals the body that it is time to wake up. The person will then naturally come out of sleep, waking during a period of lighter sleep, instead of during a vital deep period.

Alarm clocks were shown to have to opposite effect. Though they may sometimes wake a person up at a natural point, most use loud noises or flashing lights to bring a person straight out of even the deepest sleep. The body reacts badly to this method of waking up.

The more naturally we wake up, the less stressed the body is. And when you start out stress-free, you are more likely to have a happy, stress-free day. The best part about this device is that it will still wake you up on time, it just does it in a gentle way, so that the body does not feel confused or displaced. We have all had mornings when we just don’t want to get out of bed and when the only thing we do want to do is go back to sleep. You’ll have fewer of those days with the Phillips Wake-up Light!
