Now, you can beat the blues with a fake dawn, thanks to a alarm clock. The new clock invented by a British firm creates an artificial dawn that cures depressive illness seasonal affective disorder.

Cambridge-based Lumie insists its dawn simulator Bodyclock Active clock can banish the blues.

"Simply set the time you need to be awake and choose your sunrise length -- 15, 20, 30, 45, 60 or 90 minutes.

The light inside Bodyclock Active will gradually start to brighten up over your chosen sunrise length to provide you with your own personal sunrise.

"By the desired wake-up time, the light will be at its full brightness and you will have woken up naturally and gently, the way nature intended," the 'Daily Express' quoted a spokesman of the firm as saying.

The firm claims this benefits a person's body clock so you wake up feeling refreshed at the time of your choosing.

As a back-up alarm, you can also choose a dawn chorus of birdsong or roosters crowing.
