Do you get enough sleep?
Using 7 hours of sleep as a standard, around 35% of adults aren’t getting enough sleep in the US. Looking at adolescents, who should be getting at least 8 hours, the percentage jumps to a whopping 68%!
Do you fall into this camp? How many hours of sleep do you get on average? Would you like to get more sleep and take better advantage of the time you are asleep?
Believe it or not, a smart alarm clock can help you with that. Let’s take a look at how.
Adjust Your Sleep Schedule
In a perfect world, you would go to bed and wake up at the same time every day. Once your internal clock adjusted to that schedule you wouldn’t even need an alarm clock to wake up (as long as you’re getting enough sleep, that is).
But this world is far from perfect and your sleep schedule probably isn’t either.
A smart alarm clock can help you adjust your sleep schedule to work better for you. Smart alarm clocks can gradually move you into a new routine by waking you up a little bit earlier each morning. Many give you a limited number of times that you can snooze so that you’ll still be up on time.
Others even take cues from you and base your wake-up time on where you are in your natural sleep cycle. Wouldn’t it be nice to never be woken up by your alarm clock in the middle of an awesome dream again?
A Reliable Wake-Up Call
In an age where your smartphone can do everything short of brush your teeth, why wouldn’t you simply use its alarm clock?
The short answer? Reliability.
Smartphone alarm clocks have been known to simply not go off when they should. Plus, what happens if the battery dies in the middle of the night? You could always leave it charging, but what if you forget one night? Or you actually take the advice that overnight charging is bad for your phone?
To get a truly reliable wake-up call, you need to opt for an alarm clock.
Smart Alarm Clock Options and Features
But, couldn’t you use a regular old alarm clock then? What’s the big deal about getting a smart one?
Let’s start with the fact that nobody likes waking up to that blaring waaa-waaa-waaa that all alarm clocks seem to come with. Then, let’s move on to features.
Can your regular old alarm clock change your wake-up time according to the day’s traffic and weather report? Can it play your favorite tunes? How about turn on LED lights to help energize you and ready you for the day?
Yeah, we didn’t think so. And these are only a few of the things that smart alarm clocks can do.
Try It Out!
Go ahead and give it a try. All you have to lose is a few sleepless nights.
With the reliable and gentle way that a smart alarm clock will wake you up, you’ll no longer lie awake worrying that your alarm won’t go off. Or that it will and will scare you to death when it does.
