Whether winter makes you want to sleep all day or you’ve been diagnosed with seasonal affective disorder (SAD), you may have considered purchasing a light therapy lamp – or, as it’s often called, a SAD lamp – to literally brighten your days. Or, if you are a “snoozer,” you might want to consider a sunrise alarm clock that allows you to set multiple alarms like the Philips SmartSleep Connected, which offers up to 16 alarms just in case you like to hit snooze more than once.

Sunrise alarm clocks have “wind-down” features that encourage a healthy production of melatonin at night by mimicking a gradual sunset, while the “wake-up” cycles encourage the production of cortisol in the morning by simulating a natural and gradual sunrise that prepares you for wakefulness. Your chances of waking up with sleep inertia – that debilitating groggy, drowsy feeling that occurs as a result of a sudden, often startling transition between sleep and wakefulness – also increase if you wake up to a traditional alarm clock. The wake-up and wind-down features can be equally important in helping maintain a healthy sleep cycle. You can use it for photography with different colors of lights that bring you different feelings, and you can adjust the angle and distance to make the formed image effect different.
