Getting proper rest is essential for productivity, and how you wake up can set the tone for the rest of the day. Inspired by nature's sunrises, the Philips SmartSleep Wake-up Light gradually fills your room with bright yellow light over a period of 30 minutes.

This process of increasing light mimics a sunrise and thus stimulates your body to wake up naturally. As light fills the room, so does an enchanting sound. You can choose from five natural sounds -Forest Birds, Buddha, Yoga, Ocean Waves, and Nepal Bowls- to wake up slowly and tackle the day ahead.
