We buy alarm clocks to wake us up when we seem unable to shake off a sleepy head. But that seems not to be the case today as alarm clocks are embedded with many functions that we were not used to with an alarm clock. They are now multi-functional, making it interesting to have them even if you have your dear mother never miss waking you up every morning.
So when buying an alarm clock, be sure to go a little further and check every unique feature that will give more than its “alarming” function. You will surely be happier to take home an alarm clock with the following capabilities.
It Helps Have a Good Sleep
It may seem ironic that an alarm clock can let you sleep soundly when it should all be ready to wake you when the right time comes. Yes. There are some alarm clocks with features that can induce sleep and help you get the quality sleep we all need to keep us healthy. But when you set to wake you up, it is so effective that you will surely wake up from your sound sleep.
Some alarms clocks can induce sleep with their setting sun simulation, which helps those who have difficulty getting themselves into sleep. Other alarm clocks can also give you relaxing sounds of nature like a flowing river with the birds’ chirping and sounds of the wind and insects. That can really help you fall into a deep sleep.
It Keeps You Entertained
An alarm clock can also entertain you. It can also give your mobile phone some rest as you can listen to music from it. Some alarm clocks have Bluetooth and FM radios, which you can also use to listen to podcasts. While they entertain you during your “awake” period during the day, mellow music can also induce sleep during the night.
It Is a Decorative Stuff
Before, all alarm clocks look and sound almost the same. They have one monotonous ringing sound, which can surely wake you up, but it may not be the most pleasing sound you should hear first in the morning. You also do not have many choices when it comes to their design. You can only choose from black square-shaped plastic alarm clocks or oval-shaped metal brands.
Today alarm clocks can have so many sound options and have many designs to choose from. Some can pass as decorative stuff with that you can put in some conspicuous place in your room.
