Waking Up

One of my least favorite things about going back to work is having to wake up early every morning. Actually it's not so much the idea of "waking up early" that I hate, it's more the "waking up at a designated time" that I hate. When I go to sleep, I normally like to wake up when I'm good and ready. I absolutely hate having to wake up to the sound of an alarm clock buzzing.

Because of this, my ever thoughtful husband recently bought me a new alarm clock. Mind you, our old one was not broken, but it made the most annoying sound when the alarm went off. It literally jars you awake when it goes off and you wake up feeling disoriented and slightly deaf. We tried all the other alarm tones but they all pretty much sound the same. Of course, we also tried turning the volume down, but then we both slept through it the next day since it buzzed ever so softly. So basically with our old alarm clock we had two choices: get rudely roused from sleep or enjoy sleeping in and not waking up on time.

Which brings me to the new alarm clock that my darling husband got me. We now have a Homedics Soundspa Sunrise. Does that not sound like an awesome gadget to have?


Basically, it is not just an alarm clock, it also helps you fall asleep by playing soothing sounds of nature. My favorites are Spring Rain (you fall asleep while listening to the pitter-patter of raindrops) and Ocean (imagine hearing waves rolling on the shore). Also, it projects the time in a muted blue light which is perfect for nighttime viewing but without the illuminating glare. Then there is the "alarm clock" features but instead of the loud ringing in the morning, the Soundspa Sunrise gently wakes you up by simulating a sunrise (you plug in into your bedside lamp and it slowly brightens the room). It also simultaneously pipes in soothing nature sounds as well. We've programmed it so that we wake up to the sound of birds chirping! I have to say, after using it the last 3 days, it is an absolutely fantastic way to wake up feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Waking up is really hard to do. But with an alarm clock like you have that should not be a problem. That is some wonderful gadget that you have.

Oh! it's really a good item!where can I get this? Recently I am fighting with severe insomnia. I can't sleep at night and can't wake up early!

cool gadget! i hope you dont end up like me though. what i realized is that no matter what the tone/sound/music is, it becomes annoying after a while if it's the one that you hear when you have to wake up ;-)

Jeff, I think I know what you mean. Today I had to get up at 6:30 AM and those chirping birds were starting to sound pretty annoying today! =)
