Verilux Rise & Shine Serenity Lamp! ~Giveaway x 3!

*briiiiiing, briiiiiiiing, briiiiiiing*

Ah, but doesn’t that morning alarm clock just make your day? The moment it brings you from peaceful to sleep to jarred wakefulness? Oh wait, perhaps that isn’t such a great way to wake up? Nope, in my world it isn’t. I never seem to be able to get enough sleep so I always struggle with my mornings. However, I have my routine and I stick to it (that yes, that routine means NO hitting the snooze button!)!

I’m excited to tell you about the new part to my morning routine that I am LOVING! Enter Verilux. This is not a new company to me. I had one of their lamps about 10 years ago, but then a portion of it was lost in a house move and I was sad to no longer be using it. However, I’m excited to say that when I contacted them, they were quick to reunite me with their new and improved Rise and Shine Serenity lamps! In case you have no idea what I’m talking about, let me tell you a bit about them.

First, waking up to a jarring alarm clock is actually not a very nice way to wake up. It’s not really very easy on our bodies and it doesn’t help our circadian rhythms at all! The premise behind the Rise and Shine lamp is that it helps our bodies align the circadian rhythms by simulating a natural sunrise (or sunset if you choose to use it at bedtime as well). This beautiful little lamp will slowly brighten until it’s at full brightness. You can also request sound as there are five different sounds built in as well. I keep mine set on the ocean setting – it’s so soothing! The light isn’t just any light, either. It is a natural spectrum white light. You can also choose to have the light transition through 250 hues of the three primary colours! Needless to say – there are choices! The other great thing is that you can set the alarm time according to what works best for you. The sound does not come on immediately, but rather part way through the light brightening. This works fantastic for me, because I tend to wake immediately when the sound comes on. However, by this time, my body has already started to adjust to the sunrise of the light brightening. Given that our winters reduce the light we receive and given that sunrise is at about 9:15 am at its latest, waking to a “natural sunrise light” in the morning is really, really nice!

This clock also has a battery backup so you needn’t worry about the power going off and thus you sleeping through your alarm clock! Also, they have used LED lights, so the power used is drastically reduced. I really like the touch sensitive snooze button on the top of the light. I don’t actually use it to snooze the light, but it’s also the button used to turn the light on and off. My one disappointment about the light is that the light at full brightness really isn’t quite bright enough to use as a bedside lamp for reading purposes. However, I love everything else about it! I love having the ability to wake slower and gentler with the soft light and the quiet ocean sounds that both get brighter and louder. I love the size of the lamp – it has given me back more space on my bedside table! I love the option for using different colours instead of just white. I often set it to the transitioning colours while I’m getting up.

Verilux doesn’t just make these great bedside lamps. They have a whole selection of products, mainly based around natural spectrum lights. There are a few on my wish list! One is the Easyflex Natrual Spectrum Floor Lamp. This would make such a difference to crocheting in the evening when the lighting isn’t the greatest! I’d love to get a set of these magnifying glasses for my Grandma who has macular degernation and struggles to read.   They also have some interesting looking sanitizing products. I don’t go overboard with germ control – I grew up on a farm and I firmly believe we all need to eat a bit of dirt! Haha! However, I do think the Toothbrush Sanitizer is something I could get use to having around! It’s even portable, so you can take it with you! The great part about this one is that it only takes six minutes to do the job – so you can easily make sure the job is done each day! And at $19.95 US, it won’t break the bank to pick one up! If you’re a little more germ-conscious or are worried about dust mites and the like, you might want to check out their Cleanwave Sanitizing Wand! It kills up to 99.9% of germs on hard surfaces, destroys odour causing bacteria and sanitizes without chemicals or irritants! Methinks it could come in handy on occasion!

The other great thing about Verilux is that you can purchase replacement Parts & Accessories and Bulbs & Tubes! Light burnt out? No problem!
