Possini® Collection Urn Style Night Light Table Lamp Since we shifted over to daylight savings, I have been having trouble getting up in the morning. My room is so dark that I would rather keep on sleeping than start the day.

And it's a blaring shock to the system when I turn on the nightstand light. I need some kind of in-between light for those sleepy transition points. I'd like to install a dimmer on the light next to my bed. That way I can add just a little bit of light to get me up without the unpleasant cringe. A writer for the Chicago Sun Times recommends the use of  sconces.

Another option might be a table lamp with a built-in nightlight like this one on the left.

Have you found a good solution for waking up in the dark?
