Does The Sound Of Your Alarm Clock Dictate Your Mood For The Day?

I literally hate the sound of any alarm clock. Ugh, the thought of that annoying (and loud) beeping noise is making me grumpy. Does awakening to a certain sound dictate your mood for the day? The writers over at Huffington Post had the same thought and did some research.

According to their article, there haven’t been too many studies conducted to give a definitive answer. However, sleep expert Michael J. Decker, Ph.D., says, “sensory input does create a physiologic response” and hearing is indeed one of the body’s senses.

Although it’s not officially studied, he does believe that the more obnoxious alarm options on your phone can lead to feeling more grumpy in the morning. “Many people download a song to wake them up and cheer them up.” His personal favorite? Elvis Presley’s “Follow That Dream.” “It’s the first thing I hear, and it reminds me to get up and look forward to the day. I find myself much more positive when I hear that, versus other songs or tones I’ve experimented with.”

It would be really interesting to conduct your own test to see if certain alarm sounds make you feel better or worse when you wake up. Try experimenting with different sounds or even songs to see which one puts you in the best mood. After all, you want to start your day on the right foot!

Don’t miss why you should be sleeping with an eye mask and why you should sleep with your hair in a bun!
