A recent study by the American Medical Association suggested that falling asleep with the television and lights on could cause weight gain as a person’s metabolism is thrown off by the body not knowing when to shut itself down. We’ve all done it as we often use the television to wind down. But that habit could be a thing of the past thanks to the Somneo Sleep and Wake-up Light. Designed to help you relax and wake up refreshed, the device uses light-guided breathing to calm you and personalized sun settings to make it easier to get out of bed. The sunset simulation program prepares your body to sleep by gradually decreasing light and optional sound to your set duration, gently helping you to relax before you fall asleep. Inspired by well-known breathing and relaxation exercises its light-guided wind-down function is designed to help get you to sleep by helping you decompress from the day’s activities and unwind. At the time you’d like to wake, its light gradually increases before your alarm time. Over the course of 30 minutes, the simulation will start off a soft morning red and gradually increase to orange, until your room is filled with bright yellow right. This creates a natural stimulation to wake up, while your body is still asleep. By the time light has filled the room, natural sounds or FM radio completes your wake-up experience, leaving you ready for the day. We like it. $179.95 usa.philips.com
