Is there anything more annoying than that shrill squawk of a morning alarm? (Well, besides Michele Bachmann’s whiny voice.)
After getting our nightly 11 hours of shut-eye, it’s imperative that we are awakened gently in order to keep our heart rate from elevating to the point that we get shock wrinkles around our eyes. Not a pretty thing.
Back when we had more disposable income, we solved this problem by hiring a strapping young lad to gently blow kisses on our face to awaken us from our slumber. (Then we’d push him outside to clean the pool.)
But now we have something that’s as good as, if not better than, our muscle-bound concuboy. It’s called the Lark Sleep System.
Strap the small device on your wrist, pair it with an iPhone app (Android coming soon) and the device slowly pulses to awaken you peacefully and naturally. Plus, because it’s silent you won’t wake up the people in bed next to you.
The app also monitors your nightly sleep patterns and gives you detailed data, like how long it took you to fall asleep.
And how many times you awakened in the night to “sleep eat” that entire cheesecake.
