July 27, 2011 - PRLog -- BETHESDA, MD  - When school starts this fall, students across the country face the prospect of a cold, dark, and tiresome winter.  As the days grow shorter, it becomes very difficult to awaken in the morning.  That’s because humans are programmed through millions of years of evolution to wake up to the rising sun.  Our brains and bodies naturally resist getting up in the pre-dawn darkness of winter.   BioBrite, one of the largest and oldest healthy lighting companies, developed a solution to this universal problem.  Called the SunRise Alarm Clock™, it’s a clock with an integrated lamp that produces an artificial sunrise in your bedroom.  The gently brightening light fools your brain into thinking the sun is really rising, and you awake refreshed and ready to face the day.  What an improvement over being jarred from a deep sleep by a blaring clock radio, or a harsh alarm in a cold, dark room!

Winter morning wake-ups are often especially difficult for teenagers.  Many teens and parents suffer through daily battles about getting out of bed in time for school.  Typically parents say:

   “I have to wake my child three or four times every morning to get them up for school.  And yelling at my kids to get out of bed isn’t a great way to start the day — for me or for them!”

New research has confirmed that teenagers have a hard time getting up because, in addition to other stressful changes, they are experiencing a change in circadian rhythms. That means that they aren’t lazy; they just require more sleep than older people do.

An independent medical college in Philadelphia conducted a study to see if the SunRise Clock could benefit teenage students.  The subject group, ranging in age from 12 to 16 years, put away their clock radios and used the SunRise Alarm Clock™ as their sole awakening device.  At the completion of the study, both the students and their parents indicated that they experienced fewer problems when the teenagers were awakened by the SunRise Alarm Clock™.  In fact, more than 90% of both the students and their parents found it easier for the students to wake up using the SunRise Alarm Clock™, and preferred it over other methods of awakening.

BioBrite has several clock models available for all needs, preferences and budgets.
