As a busy, working mum my sleep is important to me. Very Important.
I am not someone who can function on a few hours sleep, I need a decent 7-8 hours, minimum.
What feels like yonks ago I posted about my Lumie Bodyclock and how it was rocking my world and helping me wake up refreshed on those cold dark mornings.
Well you will be pleased to hear that I still stick by all I say, they are still brilliant and with Mother’s Day round the corner I thought it would be great to give a mumma the gift of a bright and happy morning.
Lumie Bodyclock Active is an alarm clock that wakes you naturally, with a sunrise that gradually brightens; choose the time that suits you. The light is a signal for your body to ease production of sleep hormones (e.g. melatonin) and increase levels of those that help you get up and go (e.g. cortisol).
At the end of the day, there’s a 15, 20, 30, 45, 60 or 90-minute sunset to help you to naturally unwind ready for bed. Lumie Bodyclock Active has a radio with digital tuning plus several other audio features to help you start your day feeling brighter or help you relax naturally before sleep.
Enhance your morning sunrise further with a dawn chorus or a rooster wake-up call. Or, if you have trouble nodding off, there are ‘white noise’ and wave sounds to help lull you to sleep. As well as providing you with
dimmable bedside lighting, Lumie Bodyclock Active has a nightlight feature and a security option that turns the light on while you’re away.
Using a dawn simulator helps keep your sleep/wake cycle on track and has been shown to boost mood, energy and productivity levels for the whole day. If you’re not a ‘morning person’ Lumie Bodyclock Active is simply a much nicer way to wake up. It’s also an effective winter blues option and a useful complement to a lightbox in treating more severe SAD.
