Rise and Shine!!!!

How do you wake up in the morning? Does the sound of the alarm make you more anxious than getting out of bed? A study has found waking up to your favorite song can make you less groggy. Australian researchers at RMIT University say many people deal with “sleep inertia,” the feeling of lack of alertness from simply not being ready to wake up yet. They found the answer may be as simple as changing the sound of your alarm clock from beeps to music. Waking to a catchy tune is likely to make you feel more rested and ready to go. The study found “melodic” tones, regardless of musical genre, more effectively reduce sleep inertia, compared to “unmelodic” beeping alarms. Turn on 949 The Wave for your early morning wake up:)
