Alarm Clocks

Welcome to High Quality Store Alarm Clocks Collection

Getting out of the warm, cuddly bed in the morning can be very difficult. It will be a bit easier if at least the wake-up call is correct. Although mobile phones are now peeping and singing on many bedside tables, you can get the right alarm clock much more gently from sleep. Even sleep experts advocate analog alarm clocks and recommend banishing the phone from the bedroom. Because if the phone is not turned off overnight, hypervigilance can occur, a state of constant tension and alertness. This can make it difficult to fall asleep and lead to restless sleep. So the right alarm clock is a more relaxed, safer and more reliable companion for a good night's sleep than a smartphone.

How do you sleep?

Each person goes through several cycles during sleep, which in turn subdivide into phases of varying degrees of alertness. One cycle lasts about 90 minutes and begins with a state of light sleep, which passes into deep sleep and then into REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. The latter is again characterized by a relatively high state of alertness, as we are intensively dreaming in this phase and our brain processes new experiences and creates associations. The deepest sleep we have around 4 o'clock in the morning, towards morning we spend more and more time in REM sleep. Waking up is therefore easier in less deep sleep phases, so the alarm clock should be set to ring at the end of a cycle.

How can your alarm clock help you to sleep well?

The right sleep starts even before falling asleep - when you set your alarm clock. Today you can also decide how you would like to be woken up. Whether with light, sound, movement or the classic ringing, alarm clocks are tailored to your individual wishes and thus facilitate the start of the day:

• Analogue alarm clock: Originally, the clockwork of the analogue alarm clock had to be wound up by hand, today it is mainly battery-operated. His dial with 12 hours makes it necessary to turn it on before falling asleep, otherwise the alarm clock would ring every twelve hours. Also typical of the 70s is the folding clock alarm, which is now traded as a design object.

• Radio Alarm Clock: The digital alarm clock has no hands, but displays the time in digits and its clockwork is electronic. Thanks to the radio connection, the time is always set exactly and reliably. In addition, the alarm clock can be programmed, for example, so that it wakes from Monday to Friday, but not on weekends.

• Clock radio: Among the alarm clocks, the clock radio is one of the most popular models. Waking up with your favorite station is the best way to start the day for many. Many clock radios also have a CD drive or an mp3 interface, which turns your favorite song into a wake-up call.

• Light alarm clock: Especially in winter it is dark and the body is tired and heavy in the morning. Light alarm clocks simulate a sunrise and should thus facilitate getting up in the morning. Because light controls the biological clock of the person and makes the body awake faster.

• Sleep phase alarm clock: This alarm clock wants to know our sleep behavior. With a sensor on the wrist joint, he measures body movements. You can specify when you want to wake up at the latest and if you are in a suitable sleep phase, the alarm will ring. This happens at the earliest half an hour before or at the latest at the set alarm time.

How can you enjoy getting up?

After the alarm clock ringing it is worth it to stay still a little and to follow the gradual awakening of the brain. The brain is not yet very powerful and reacts slowly. Now the brain is in a similar state as in REM sleep: brisk feelings, slumbering mind. It is the best moment to consciously perceive one's own feelings and to pursue dreams. If you take a few minutes, you may already have the most important insight of the day before getting up.
