PrintHow the Sun Alarm works:
With the low levels of light utilized in dawn simulation devices, one might wonder how it can be possible to actually wake up to it. The answer lies in the fact that human eyes are ultra-sensitive to light in the early morning. As a result of having been in darkness all night long, they are able to perceive and register even the smallest amounts of light.
When our eyes detect this increased level of light, a signal is sent to the brain's pineal gland. The pineal then triggers the production of the hormone serotonin, which causes us to slowly awaken. This natural method of waking leaves us feeling refreshed and energized.

Sleep CD:
For many, quieting the mind to prepare for sleep is a nightly chore; yet restoring healthy sleep cycles lies within your own power. Whenever you find your thoughts keeping you awake, listen to the soothing techniques and music in this program created and guided by naturopathic physician James Rouse — and get to sleep fast. James Rouse holds a doctorate in naturopathic medicine from National College in Portland, Oregon, the oldest accredited naturopathic medical school in the nation. His multidisciplinary background includes psychology and yoga as well as post-doctorate work in Chinese, Tibetan and Ayurvedic medicine. He is a true believer in total well-being, a lifestyle that empowers you to do what you love most and achieve your best in life.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Not what I had in mind I ordered this for my husband who has been having troubles going to sleep and getting up in the morning. I thought the nature sounds and the sunset feature would help sooth him at night. However, the nature sounds are a very short clip that repeats which made them all annoying to listen to. The sun feature wasn't very easy to figure out and in the morning wasn't enough to wake him. I returned the item but still ended up paying for the shipping. Which was disappointing as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wakes Me Up, But . . . This is a great idea and the price is affordable. However the light is not bright enough to wake me up on its own. I also set the mornign birdy sounds and I still needed to set my cellphone alarm. However. . . Once my cell phone goes off I am much more likely to stay awake. I have not hit the snooze button on my cell phone once since I got this alarm. I'm going to set it to radio and see if that works as well as the light/cell glee song alarm combo. Background. Before I started using this a few weeks ago I had 7 alarms set on my cell phone to go off between 5.45 and 6.45 and I almost always slept through them all. I have woken up at 5.45am for the last 2 weeks with no problem. And I am actually awake. I'm not blinking in the bathroom light trying to find the knob to turn on the water anymore. My eyes are adjusted to the light by the time I wake up!!! February 3, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Want to like, but can't find anything good to say I've been looking for a sun alarm/radio and bought this as a birthday present to myself. I had high hopes but was really disappointed. The quality of materials is cheap. The radio (which is FM only) barely works, and has no station indicator. You can't read the time (day or night) unless you're looking from just the right angle. This means I can't replace my existing clock/radio with this one, so it just clutters my nightstand. The nature sounds are also "tinny" and repeat every 2-3 seconds--they sound fake and monotonous and actually irritate rather than relax me. Finally, the light failed to wake me. This one's gotta go back (bummer)! January 2, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by OOPS red faced on christmas the sun relaxation kit I ordered as a gift was sent and had been returned before and not checked or repacked as the parts were not in there spots in the package and the instructions were also missing. A very imbarassing sight when opened as a gift to my wife on christmas day, OOPS! December 26, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Invention EVER!!! I am NOT a morning person. I have a lot of trouble getting out of bed, especially when it's dark out. So I saw this and decided to try it out. I have the setting so the sun starts rising 15 min before my alarm should go off and the alarm is chirping birds. I am awake before the birds chirp every morning. Now, I'm not saying this is a miracle worker...I still HATE getting out of bed, but it is so wonderful waking up naturally instead of to an obnoxious BEEP, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP! I absolutely love it and would definitely recommend it...actually 4 friends and family members have already put in their order. It's a must have! December 8, 2011
