Win A Lumie Bodyclock Active

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.

Key features

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.

    Limit screens like smartphones and tablets before bed. If you absolutely have to use one, try and install a blue light filter app. It will help your body get ready for sleep more naturally.

    For me, getting a good night’s sleep is all about taking the time to wind down before bed and that means no technology! Every night I read a book for about 30 mins and it helps me drift off.

    A nice warm bath. Clean bedding and hubby in spare room…bliss

  29. March 15, 2017 / 10:08 pm

    I’m currently building a similar product called Lark. I can highly recommend a wake-up alarm clock if you have trouble getting up in the morning, especially if you use shades or curtains. As other mentioned, apps that limit blue light are also very helpful.

    Sleep hygiene is so important. Try to do nothing in your bed except sleep. The less your mind associates with your bed, the better.

  32. Abigail Cullen
    March 16, 2017 / 1:22 am

    Good tips are too not do anything like exercise at least an hour before bedtime, as you will not be relaxed enough.

  33. Paul Wilson

    Go to bed at about the same time every night and keep your bedroom well ventilated and cool. Make sure you gave nice dark window coverings too. Don’t drink caffeine just before bed it will keep you awake.

  44. Fiona K
    March 16, 2017 / 8:54 am

    Having a camomile tea, no caffeine after 15:00 and keeping the bedroom technology free, airy, dark and quiet

  45. Hilda Wright
    March 16, 2017 / 9:12 am

    I have the window open all year round so the room is full of fresh air. I find that really helps and I don’t like it if it is too windy or wet outside to have the window open!

  46. Freya Knudsen

  50. Eleanor Beavan
    March 16, 2017 / 10:10 am

    I find sleep very difficult at the moment due to the menopause but what I find really helps is reading myself to sleep although the kindle always ends up on my partners head ! I also keep the window open for ventilation and take a Kalms Night tablet.

  51. Ann-Marie Gould
    March 16, 2017 / 10:33 am

    i try to stop drinking caffeine a couple of hours before bed and turn my mobile off before i go upstairs so im not tempted to scroll through social media before sleep, i find a nice hot bubble bath also helps me to wind down and sleep better

    I can’t sleep properly unless I’ve been through my bedtime ritual – make up off, teeth done, creams on etc! I find that if I spend a bit of time massaging my night cream into my skin, I feel a lot more relaxed and ready for sleep πŸ™‚

  58. Sheena Batey

  61. Gina Raymond
    March 16, 2017 / 12:35 pm

    Try to go to bed and get up about the same time every day to set a routine. Warm milk before bed, no tv or internet for at least 30 mins. before you lay down, and, for me, total darkness and a firm pillow πŸ™‚

  62. Jane Allen
    March 16, 2017 / 12:37 pm

    Have a window open a crack, even if it’s cold out. Stuffy air doesn’t help sleep. Keep screens out of the bedroom as much as possible and certainly in the hour before bed, have a hot bath and apply magnesium oil or take a magnesium supplement before bedtime. Helps sleep and helps you to absorb calcium too. (I’m a bit of an insomniac)

  63. stuart hargreaves

  66. Kerry Taylor
    March 16, 2017 / 1:13 pm

    Have a window open for some fresh air, and I always try to have a chat with my husband to talk about the concerns of the day so I’m not worrying about them instead of sleeping!

  67. Marc H
    March 16, 2017 / 1:24 pm

    I always find i sleep better if i exercise that day. Always have a nice hot bath before getting into bed as well.

    Make sure you don’t watch anything troubling or violent on TV for several hours before you go to bed and keep the bedroom cool and dark.

  71. March 16, 2017 / 1:46 pm

  72. Helen Tovell
    March 16, 2017 / 2:06 pm

    March 17, 2017 / 7:37 pm

    I believe the secret to a good night’s comfortable sleep lays in getting your bedroom temperature right? We all have different optimum levels for too warm or too cold so it differs for everybody so you have to experiment using a diary. Oh yeah…you have to find that one in a billion partner who shares the same temperature – which isn’t so easy…sorry to say πŸ˜‰

    Make sure your bedroom is light-tight and you turn off any TV/Laptop/Phone etc. at least an hour before going to bed. I have my shower last thing at night, then read in bed for a whiile. This I find is the best way of avoiding TV etc. late at night!

    My sleep tips are to try to go to sleep and get up at the same time everyday, get as much natural sunlight as possible, move vigorously during the day – don’t sit for more than an hour, limit caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, and big meals at night, take time for relaxing activities before sleep and create a calm and restful sleep environment.

  181. Laura Kevlin
    March 21, 2017 / 10:13 am

    For me it really takes a holistic approach – some exercise during the day, good diet (not too little or too much), make some progress with a project or solve a problem during the day, maintain friendships and connections with friends or family, and some breathing exercises or meditation to switch off my mind before bed. When one or more of these areas is lacking it really puts me off kilter and I dwell on it in the quiet time before sleep.

  182. Alison Macdonald

  187. claire sen
    March 21, 2017 / 12:19 pm

    Keep laptops and phones well away from the bed and no going on them as you wind down! It makes such a difference. Even TV can leave me feeling a bit too alert aswell. I love listening to the radio or reading a book, it helps a lot.

    Ensure you keep to a regular bedtime, never go to bed on an argument, and settle the day’s events in your mind before you hit the sack. If necessary, plan the following day’s activities so you’re clued up when you awake the next day. Thus, you can go to bed on a clear head, leading to a peaceful night’s sleep πŸ™‚

    Wind down at night :- i.e. quieter down by reducing activity / ies, noise, light etc. I like to have some supper such as tea and toast ( can be de – caffeinated tea) before bedtime. Comfort is also important, so make a toilet visit before going to bed. I like cosy pyjamas and a comfortable duvet and pillow.

    As a youngster my parents would give myself and siblings a mug of warm milk before bedtime. I was a good sleeper as a child. Parents used to read us a bedtime story. I think routine and parental Caring and Consistency helps children to feel secure, which helps when it comes to settling to sleep.

    In order to get a good night’s sleep, you need to switch off so shut down your laptop/tablet and switch off the TV at least 30 minutes before bed. Have a nice warm bath and add a few drops of your favourite essential oil like lavender. Go up to bed and read a chapter or two of a good book and before you turn off the light, add a few more drops of essential oil to your pillow.
