SUNSHINE when she's up!

I've had this life-long obsession with all sorts of gadgets, and when I discovered THIS, I Knew I HAD to own one.

Walking up to the simulated sunrise with the BBC News radio channel volume slowly increasing is just great. Its Soo satisfying to wake up in the morning, not only energized by the SUN-rise Light, but also being AWARE of what's going on in the world!
okay, I know most of the 'news' i hear is when i'm half asleep, but at least during the day when people talk about local/world events, it triggers my memory and i'm like "yeeeaahh I heard that in the news this morning"

Something else this baby is really good @ is relieving symptoms of the Winter Blues.

With the very lovely (e7em..depressing!) winter days over here, we HARDLY get any sun! There's literally only about 7 hours of daylight perday!   <-- yet another reason why i can't wait to jump on the plane back home!

The timing of the sun is actually used by our Bodies to regulate different things such as our Mood, Sleep, Waking up, Digestion, Energy levels, etc.. What i'm trying to say is because the sun here is so messed-up in the winter, I get messed up too! and THAT my people is when we are labeled as having SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)  <-- like we need another disorder in our life, lol!

So by using this cool gadget, our bodies get the right type of Light, producing energetic hormones and stopping the bad withdrawal ones, making us sleep better at night and feel super-dee-duper during the day   ;D

the sun is rising............

since i've started using it, I DO feel more energetic! it works, and i just Love it  =)

isn't that one of the greatest inventions or what?!
