This morning I woke up and decided to share a glimpse into my not yet fully finished new bedroom. All that drive and vigor came from a very good night’s sleep and a fresh and easy-going start in the morning. And this happened despite the dark and gloomy season here. Waking up in wintertime is a real challenge – my alarm clock is set at 6:45 am and it is still night outside. Now our human body is just like any other living being – we need light to live. And to wake up. Several studies have shown the effect of light on sleeping and waking patterns. So I decided to change my pattern too and wake up with the sunrise. Even in dark winter times.

For today’s post I have teamed up with Philips. When they approached me and asked if I was game to test their new Wake Up Light I was hesitant at first. A Wake Up Light? I have an alarm clock. What the heck. And now here I am: A fervent believer in the benefits of a Wake Up Light! My mornings have changed in 2018! It was on January 2nd that I woke up for the first time with the Philips Wake-Up Light. At 6:45 am the sun was slowly rising in my bedroom. The warm light tickled my senses and I opened one eye, then the other. Slowly, as I was still rolling in bed, I heard chirping forest birds in the distance. But where was I waking up? In a jungle? In paradise? No, just in my bedroom. And while it was still night outside, my bedroom was glowing and filled with gentle bird sounds as if I was in a magical forest.

I can not describe how much easier it was for me to get up. Seriously, I was not aware of the fact that the darkness outside made my winter mornings so hard. In general I am not an early riser, but with the sunrise simulation and the chirping birds coming from my Wake-Up Light everything seemed so much easier. After day one I have abandoned my old alarm clock. I mean who wants to be woken up by a buzzing alarm sound if you can opt for chirping forest birds. Or rolling ocean waves. Right?

But if you thought that is it, let me tell you more: The Philips Somneo is actually a Sleep and Wake-Up Light. It has a sunset simulation too as well as a RelaxBreathe mode to help you fall asleep more easily. A variety of seven wake up sounds as well as three nature sounds can be chosen, but you can also opt for your favorite radio station or choose your own tune. Additionally, the Wake-Up Light functions as a bedside light or speaker. Now that is a multi-talent, isn’t it?

For me this Wake-Up Light is a real game changer. It will definitely make my mornings brighter and easier throughout the darker season. But I don’t want to just talk and tell you things. Instead, you should test it and convince yourself. Together with Philips I am giving away one Somneo Wake-Up Light on Instagram. Hop over and join in – and your mornings will be bright, happy, and hey, you might hear a few chirping birds too! Happy mornings wherever you are!

    What a good idea! A ‘Wake up Light’ – I must try it sometime! Beautiful room styling 🙂

    Sunrise simulation certainly beats the usual short, sharp shock of a traditional alarm clock every morning!

    Looks Brilliant! Just wondering what is name of the wall paint colour?

    • Reply Igor January 30, 2018 at 09:15

      That is a wall paint from a brand called Kolorat. They don’t have paint names but color codes, this one is k-74-46-10-59-t. Hope that helps.
