Waking Up and Falling Asleep More Easily

Many people find that neurofeedback helps them to get a better night’s sleep. Maybe they actually come for neurofeedback brain training because they struggle with concentration or organization, or even pain or balance or hearing. And then they find that their sleep has improved!

If you have sleep problems but you’re not ready to do neurofeedback brain training just yet, you might like to look at dawn simulation alarm clocks. These have a light that turns on gradually, over the course of half an hour or so, and helps you to wake up naturally. So you’re not wrenched from the depths of sleep in a cold sweat, wondering where on the planet you are, when your horrible alarm clock goes off.

They also usually have a sunset feature that dims the lamp gradually as you (try to) go to sleep. And you can have a lullaby or get woken up to the sounds of crickets or birds.

That might be all it takes to sort out your sleep, and it certainly makes waking up much more easy and pleasant. And they’re especially helpful in winter when mornings are long and dark.

I got my first one of these, in the 1990s, from Lumie (they were called Outside-In in those days and the clock is the second from the left in this picture – vintage!) and my second one from Sunrise Systems – check out all these sunrise clocks on Amazon.

Do let me know how you get on! And I’ll always be happy to talk with you about neurofeedback.
