Introducing Morning Guides: A Better Way to Wake Up with Your Alarm Clock

May 2, 2023

It's 7:30 AM on a Tuesday, and you have things to do. But when your alarm goes off, you can't help but reach over groggily and fumble for the snooze button on your wake up alarm clock. Then, ten minutes later, you do it again. And again. 

Sound familiar? If it does, you certainly aren't alone. According to one study, 57% of Americans regularly hit the snooze button, which, the study calculated, works out to 3.5 months of the average adult life spent delaying an inevitable wake-up call. 

Several factors contribute to chronic "snoozing" and "re-snoozing." Restlessness, poor sleep, and anxiety about getting a good night's rest can contribute to a less-than-pleasant wake-up. Luckily, your Hatch sunrise alarm clock is the best alarm clock on the market to combat these sleep-related maladies. An impressive 87% of Hatch users said Hatch's wake up alarm products like the Restore 2 improved their sleep, while 69% of users reported waking up better-rested thanks to their Restore sunrise alarm clock.

While our line of sunrise alarm clocks are proven to help promote better sleep and better sleep habits, we know that waking up can still be quite the chore. Pesky conditions like sleep inertia can make getting out of bed in the mornings harder than needed, leaving us with unpleasant symptoms like grogginess, impairing cognitive ability, visual attention, and spatial memory.

The non-profit National Sleep Foundation lists "gentle waking" as one of the best ways to combat that dreaded sleep inertia and arise with the motivation and energy you need to meet the day. Of course, over here at Hatch, we already knew that, so we've carefully crafted our sunrise alarm clocks to gently get you up with natural sunlight tones and soothing wake up alarms that bring you into a state of wakefulness without the annoying jolt of traditional alarm clocks. 

That's not the only way we're working to improve your wake-ups and help you build a healthy morning routine, though.

It's our job to ensure you're getting the best rest possible, and that's why we're so excited to announce our new line of guided Morning Guides, explicitly designed to help engage your brain, get your body moving, and leave you inspired for the day ahead. 

Each series of Morning Guides consists of short 3-5 minute episodes hosted by thought-provoking content creators and wellness professionals.

With dozens of episodes per series and more on the way, these Morning Guides will help you create a fresh and healthy morning routine without even getting out of bed. 

Let's take a quick look at the Morning Guides available on your Restore or Restore 2 sunrise alarm clock. You might just meet your new wake-up buddy (and no, we don't mean your dog or your toddler).
