We love the winter; it brings us closer together over the festive period, and all the best films are on the telly. But boy, are those cold, dark mornings a drag. So much so that many people suffer from what is known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) a medical condition that’s brought on by a lack of natural sunlight.
Lumie, working alongside the National Trust and RSPB, think they’ve got the perfect solution in the form of the Bodyclock Active. They’re calling it a dawn simulator, which is basically a very nifty alarm clock that fills your room with light in the morning as well as the soothing sounds of birdsong.
Jonathan Cridland, CEO of Lumie, said: “Through previous research, we’ve known for a long time that light can drastically improve symptoms of the winter blues and the new research from the National Trust demonstrates even more how products like Bodyclock Active can help lift the mood of millions.
“Not only will it wake them up naturally to light, but once the sunrise is fully risen it can also be set to play the therapeutic and relaxing sound of birdsong so that users can squeeze a quick five minute session in before their day fully begins.
“By bringing a bit of the outside inside through dawn simulator products like Bodyclock Active, people can make sure they still have access to important things such as a sunrise and the sound of birdsong no matter what time of the year it is – this will have a profound effect on their overall mood as well as their wellbeing.”
Available on 30 day trials, you can pick the Bodyclock Active up from Boots or John Lewis. Click here for more info.
