Chime Alarms for a Peaceful Awakening
A truly energized, productive day is possible only after a relaxed, restorative night. “Your alertness during the day is dependent on the quality of your sleep and on getting undisturbed sleep,” says Thomas Roth, Ph.D., a psychologist and the director of the Sleep Disorder Center at Henry Ford Hospital, in Detroit. Research has shown that seven to eight hours really is the ideal. Start preparing yourself about an hour before bed, advises Michael Perlis, Ph.D., an associate professor of psychology and the director of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program at the University of Pennsylvania. “You need to allow yourself to decompress and unwind,” he says. Physically and psychologically, you’ll be better prepared for quality sleep. Remember to set your Chime Alarm that will gradually awaken you with a series of gentle chimes in the morning, so that you are not startled awake!
When the clock’s alarm is triggered, the acoustic chime bar is struck just once ... 3-1/2 minutes later it strikes again ... chime strikes become more frequent over 10 minutes ... eventually striking every 5 seconds until shut off.
