Here’s how I wake up every morning: My phone bursts into a jingle—wake up, loser—and I hit the snooze button until it goes off nine minutes later. Many days, my partner’s phone goes off at the same time, so it’s just a symphony of beeps invading our dreams.
Here’s how I could wake up every morning: A beautiful little orb on my nightstand glows gently onto my face—it’s morning, cutie—simulating a sunrise until I open my eyes to greet the new day.
Instead of choosing violence, I could choose a sunrise alarm clock. After reading our review and hearing only good things from a bunch of my coworkers, I’m intrigued. We tested five of the more popular options, and our favorite is the Philips SmartSleep Connected Sleep and Wake-up Light. Our reviewer really liked the realistic sunrise simulation, light-guided breathing exercises, and modern design. (It’s giving Pixar.)
We liked a few others, too. 🔆
If you’ve been waking up to a sunrise alarm clock, let me know which one you love.
