Piggy-backing on my last post about the importance of sleep, I wanted to write a quick not about waking up. It’s hard to do sometimes, especially when the sun isn’t up yet. Our sleep cycles are tied to our hormonal system which is tied to light.  The sunrise allows us to be pulled out of sleep naturally and feel awake and alert upon rising.  A blaring alarm clock going off suddenly in the middle of darkness does not.  Check out sunrise alarm clocks, one that can be found at Dr. Joseph Mercola’ site with some more info.
