I have a fantastic competition in collaboration with Lumie for one of my readers to win a Lumie Bodyclock Iris 500 so you can try out the benefits of this innovation in sleeping and waking with the gradual sunrise/sunset glow of the clock rather than the horrible beep beep beep we are all so used to! Not only does the Lumie Bodyclock Iris 500 gently wake you up with the slow gradual sunset, you can also use it at night to give a gradual sunset and you have the option of adding some relaxing/reviving aromatherapy oils into the aromatherapy chambers to enhance the experience. If this sounds like something you would like to try, all you need to do is enter using the Gleam App below.
If you struggle with early morning rising and the feeling of being refreshed in the morning (or lack of!) the Lumie range of Bodyclock’s could be the solution you have been looking for. Developed to aid sleeping patterns and help get your body back to a normal routine of sleep the Lumie Bodyclock once programmed will emit a gentle light over the last half an hour of sleep to gently wake you as the sunrise would. You can also use it to help drift of to sleep in the evening, when the light will gradually decrease until it is switched off.
As you unwind in the evening the effect of the artificial sunset will help your body produce melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone which helps to control your sleep and waking cycles. Using the Lumie Bodyclock you can help re-set your body to respond to the sunrise and sunset of the light and get your wake/sleep cycle back on track. Not only can you program the Bodyclock to wake you up with the ‘sunrise’ light you can also opt to have the alarm sound as well, and it also features a snooze button if you prefer to have an addition 10 minutes in bed! Although once you have used the Lumie Bodyclock I’m sure you won’t need to hit snooze any longer!
The light is bright enough that you can use it at night as a nightlight as well as programming it to be set as a ‘sunset’ light. The aromatherapy chambers can be filled with a refreshing oil to help you in the morning while you are waking up and during the evening a realxing oil to help you to fall to sleep. There are two chambers within the Bodyclock allowing you to use different oils depending if you are waking or going to sleep.
If this sounds like the solution for you to get your sleep rhythms in sync again then why not enter this competition kindly supplied by Lumie to win one for yourself and see the difference. Take a look at the video below to get an idea of what the clock looks like in use and to see if it could be the clock for you. Good Luck!
