Why does a heavy sleeper need a loud alarm clock?
Sleep is essential for the body and mind to rest. Some people’s brains, however, work differently and are very sensitive to noises, whilst others cannot wake up easily. Being a heavy sleeper, while beneficial during the night when a dripping tap or the ticking clock disturbs others, can be a real problem in the morning when you cannot wake up. A loud alarm clock is a good choice for a heavy sleeper due to the loud and often unpleasant sounds they emit. Annoying sounds are known to stimulate the auditory nerves and deliver a message to the brain. The processing of this message leads to an increase in adrenaline and gives the body an
emergency alarm signal which wakes you up.
Alarm clocks for heavy sleepers, therefore, offer a proper wake-up call. Their loud alarms and powerful vibration is enough to get the deepest sleepers up and out of bed in the morning!
