Both our daughters have been great sleepers since early days so I cannot complain about having lack of sleep because of them. They actually love sleeping so much, that the only problem I have is waking them up in the morning in time for school.
I do love my sleep and stay in bed until I get woken up by my darling husband getting ready for work at about 7:45am during school days. Then I quietly open my older daughter’s door and try to wake her up gently. As expected from a soon-to-be teenager, I usually get the horrible look on her face in return. I leave her to it, just letting her know it really is the time to get ready for school.
In summer it is so much easier for all of us to get up in the morning, but as it is now getting darker and darker every day, it is getting so hard to get out of bed. The only way to do it is to trick your body to think it is the morning despite the darkness by using one of Lumie wake-up lights!
How does it work?
Isabelle has been sent their Bodyclock ACTIVE 250 Bedside wake-up lights with radio and audio options. It is the original wake-up light, also called a dawn simulator. It wakes you gradually with increasing natural light.
This is a signal for your body to ease the production of sleep hormones and increase those that help you get up and go. Wake-up lights help to keep your sleep cycle on track, boosting mood, energy and productivity levels all day.
starts gently like a real sunrise…
- 15, 20, 30, 45, 60 or 90 minute sunrise to wake naturally
- 15, 20, 30, 45, 60 or 90 minute sunset to wind down for bed
- FM radio with digital tuning
- Dawn chorus or rooster call sounds to enhance your sunrise
- White noise setting to mask sounds that might keep you awake
- Wave sounds to lull you to sleep
- Sunray effect
- Dimmable lighting for use as a bedside light
- Nightlight feature
- Snooze feature
- Security option to turn on the light randomly while you’re away
- Back-ups: optional alarm beep, power failure back-up
Isabelle got quickly used to being gently woken-up by 30-minute sunrise and her alarm is set to her favourite radio station. Our mornings have improved so much!
Going to bed is also much easier. She loves reading in her bed, and this light is perfect as a bedside light too. Then when she is ready to go to bed she turns the sunset option on and soon is drifting off to the dreamland.
No more waking-up dramas in our house.
