Nothing makes mornings more painful than being jarred awake by some drivetime DJ or a horrible, harsh buzzer. You aren't meant to wake up that quickly; it just isn't natural, I say. You should wake up gradually and greet the day at your own pace. Unfortunately, most alarm clocks don't give you that option.
Well, the Progression Wake Up Clock does. It wakes you up with a light that gradually brightens and the sweet scents of aromatherapy beads. 30 minutes before you're supposed to wake up the light will gradually warm up. As it does, it'll melt the aromatherapy beads inside, gently releasing pleasant odors into your room, waking you up naturally. Sounds a lot better than what you're used to, doesn't it?
