Win Bodyclock Active and wake up brighter

Winter is nearly here and with it those dark, cold mornings that can make it so hard to wake up and get going, especially if you have to get up for an early commute. Help is at hand with Lumie Bodyclock, wake-up lights that simulate a gentle sunrise, waking you naturally; you begin to stir gradually so by the time you open your eyes, you’re properly awake, alert and feeling ready for the day ahead.

Now you can #WakeUpBrighter by winning one of three Bodyclock Active. Just follow @Lumie_lights and tweet one of the facts from this page.

Facts and figures on the winter blues

Up to 17%* of us suffer from the winter blues, feeling extra tired, lacking in energy and down.


For the 7%* of the population who have Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), these symptoms become sufficiently bad that they struggle to function normally.


Finding it hard to get up is often a biological problem, where the circadian rhythms that control our body clock have got out of sync.


The light from a Lumie light stimulates production of hormones that help us get up and go, like cortisol, while suppressing those that bring on sleep, like melatonin.
