Need the best natural light alarm clock to awake by every morning? There’s a way to bypass that awful adrenaline rush: a wake-up light alarm clock, also known as a sunrise/ natural light alarm clock. These devices sit on your bedside table like an alarm clock, but instead of rousing you with sound, they rely on light to ease you awake gradually over about 30 minutes.

These devices may be small but they are mighty, where the effect of a slow summer sunrise encourages your body to stop producing the sleep hormone melatonin in favour of the mood-enhancing, feel-good hormone serotonin. If you dread the mornings and struggle to get out of bed, a light alarm can help you get a better start to the day

6. ALFALED Sunrise Alarm Clock

A fairly basic light alarm clock, but it works well enough. It has a battery-powered option, though with limited functionality.

Like other sunrise alarm clocks, the light starts to turn on 30 minutes before alarm time, but this lamp probably wouldn’t suffice as a bedside lamp.

Overall, it’s not bad. You’ll miss out on the jazzier aspects of some others, but it’s perfectly good nonetheless.

10. Groov-e Light Curve Wake-Up Light Alarm Clock with Radio

The Light Curve Wake-up Light from Groov-e fills that niche, with a few nifty extra touches. You can use both sunset and sunrise options to decrease/increase your light’s brightness over ten settings over a period of either 10, 20 or 30 minutes. However, the shift between the brightness levels is not as smooth as those from more expensive rivals.

With the sunrise option, you can also add audio effects, choosing between FM radio or one of the programmed sounds on the light. Most of these are musical. Unfortunately, there are no nature or ambient sounds, which are available on other lamps.

This budget light alarm also doubles up as a mood light, with seven colours that rotate – or the option to set it to your preferred shade. None of its rivals offer this feature, so although the Groov-e is missing some functionality, this is an unusual selling point.
