When people ask us about the Sunrise System we generally say ‘we can tell you all about it – but... you won’t appreciate it until you try it.’ In short, we say ‘Take it to bed – Sleep with it!’ The point being that it really doesn’t sound as though a simulated Sunset and Sunrise can be that effective in sleeping and waking. But then you need to think about it. What did we all do before we had nice houses, windows, curtains and electric light? We awoke with the sunrise and we started winding down and thinking about sleeping when the light faded and the sun set. The most natural way to sleep has to be in tune with our natural rhythms. Try it and see. For further and more detailed information on SAD why not visit the MIND charity website where you can download or request a comprehensive leaflet entitled, ‘Understanding Seasonal Affective Disorder’. We were delighted with the excellent 9/10 rating we received during a recent independent consumer product test of the new SRS 260. Product testers agreed that the Sunrise System was effective in providing a natural and gentle wake up with light. They enjoyed the feature packed product and the additional sound options of the MP3 player and digital radio which were not in similarly priced products.
