The Philips Wake-up Light gently prepares your body for waking up during the last half hour of sleep. In the early morning hours our eyes are more sensitive to light than when we are awake. During that period the relatively low light levels of a simulated natural sunrise increase levels of the hormone cortisol shortly after awakening.
People who use the Wake-up Light wake up more easily, have a better overall mood in the morning and feel more energetic. Starting the day with the Wake-Up Light may have a positive effect on your productivity and concentration.
Because sensitivity to light differs from person to person, you can set the light intensity of your Wake-up Light to a level that matches your light sensitivity for an optimal start to the day.
