2. Daylight Alarm
What’s even better is that these lamps are normally combined with an alarm clock. This means you can then set it to gradually get brighter in the morning and to thereby gently rouse you out of sleep just as a real-life sunrise would.
Now, instead of being ‘startled awake’ by a noisy alarm and flooding your body with stress, you’re instead being gently nudged into wakefulness by the sun – just as your body was designed to be.
Better yet, your brain will produce cortisol as the sun ‘rises’ which is the hormone that works counter to melatonin to signal that it’s time for you to wake up.
