It’s the beginning of a new year. That means, new goals, new commitments, a chance to start fresh. For most people this includes goals of losing weight, eating healthier, or being more productive; making the most of your day to be the best person you can. Why not start each day with a better night so you can accomplish these goals well rested and energized? Your standard alarm clock just won’t do when it comes to this, but Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock does. The app tracks your sleep patterns, waking you up in the lightest sleep phase closest to when your alarm is set to go off.
So why is it important that you wake up in the lightest sleep phase? Well, our bodies go through a cycle when they are asleep, moving from light sleep to deep sleep and occasionally going into REM-sleep (a dream state). A normal alarm clock doesn’t take any of these phases into account. It just simply goes off at the specific time you set no matter what stage of sleep you’re in. Waking up in the middle of the deep sleep phase can cause a great disruption in your sleep pattern resulting in the sluggish, sleep deprived feeling so many of us are familiar with.
Sleep Cycle takes all of this into consideration using a 30 minute alarm window that ends at your set alarm time and wakes you up in your lightest sleep place. The result: a more refreshed, well-rested you and a more productive energetic day. Just think of all that you could accomplish when you’re at your best from the start of the day! All of this for only $.99.
