Sleep Well and Wake Refreshed
Everyone knows the refreshing, rejuvenating and reinvigorating feeling of a good night’s sleep.. Unfortunately, the demands and stresses of our 24/7 society can make those nights few and far between.
Despite our busy schedules, our bodies strive to maintain regular sleep patterns through the timed release of hormones regulated by our “internal clock,” otherwise known as “circadian rhythms.” This internal cycle takes cues from external light sources (specifically, dawn and dusk) to signal the body that it’s time to wake up or go to sleep. Ordinary indoor lighting, late-night studying and the glow of computer screens and televisions can disrupt these natural cues and make it difficult to get a healthy night’s sleep. Studies show that light therapy can help the body recalibrate and normalize circadian rhythms. You’ll experience improved energy, productivity and mood, naturally, without the use of drugs or artificial stimulants.
The Rise & Shine Natural Sleep System helps guide your body’s internal systems that regulate normal sleeping and waking. Soothing and effective sleep and wake-up programs help you fall asleep easily and wake naturally refreshed and rejuvenated.
The Rise & Shine Wake-Up Light uses light and sound to help you fall asleep and wake as nature intends.
