The "Sleep Epidemic" is not your fault
Jari Roomer, editor at Personal Growth Lab and productivity guru, couldn't be more clear in his 2019's article:
"3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Check Your Phone Within 1 Hour Of Waking Up"
When you wake up and immediately check your phone, you’re being bombarded with new messages, emails, to-dos, and other stimuli that often creates a feeling of stress and anxiety.
Immediately, external stimuli are pulling for your attention, giving you no time and space to start your day calmly.
According to Dr. Nikole Benders-Hadi, “immediately turning to your phone when you wake up can start your day off in a way that is more likely to increase stress and leave you feeling overwhelmed.”
By checking social media, email, or messaging right after waking up, you let other people’s opinions, requests, and advertising into your mind, which pollutes your thinking. Your thoughts, ideas, and focus are immediately hijacked by the new messages, emails, and notifications that you’ve received. In other words, your mind will be occupied with other people’s agenda — not your own. Instead of starting your day proactively focusing on your own goals, you’re being forced to react to other people’s stuff.
By starting the day distracted, you set the tone for a distracted day. Most people assume they can smoothly go from distraction to intense focus, but that’s not the case. According to Dr. Nikole Benders-Hadi, “The information overload that hits [you] before you’re fully awake interferes with your ability to prioritize tasks.” In other words, throughout the day, we get distracted much quicker and mess up our productivity by checking our smartphone first thing in the morning.
Making this life-changing decision shouldn't COST
As Much As Your Smartphone
With a Human Soul"
We believe there is a more HUMAN way to overcome the current overwhelming technology and digital dependency.
We want to solve the problem by creating beautifully crafted and digital-free solutions (no more apps) that help us disconnect from our devices. Our solutions are reminders that real connections start the moment we put our smartphones away and we proudly celebrate that.
Digital wellness is not an app but an entire LIFESTYLE CHANGE. It’s about building positive routines that enhance our human condition, not downgrade them.

Welcome back to analog times. It feels harder at the beginning but it pays off on the long run. For this reason, we have put together this informative page with recommendations on how to set the time, the alarm and any little aspect you might think of.
We use a USPS service for businesses. Once we sent your Bagby, you will receive a tracking code to track the status of your order at all times. Especially for this item, we ship priority (You will receive your item is 2 days) and we offer FREE Shipping!
This clock has no annoying lights or glowing hands so sleep deeper. There is a button in the back for you to light up the dial to see the time only when you need to.
We looked into this carefully as we know how important this is. The alarm has a gentle beeping sound. The ascending alarm begins sound faintly and then grew increasingly louder for gently wake up without being awakened abruptly. You can see a video here.
Our clients have always kept their orders and loved them. We don't often receive any refund request but if you don't like your Bagby item, we offer easy returns. - Contact us within 14 days of delivery - Ship items back within 30 days of delivery - If the item you received is damaged (for example due to the shipping) or doesn't work properly, you can ask for a refund and we will take care of everything.
Silent refers to the clock mechanism which means there is no ticking noise. This is a "sweep" movement (silent) vs "step" movement (tick-tack sound).
Gentle sound refers to the alarm sound which means that the alarm sound is not super loud (like an old traditional clock) so you can wake up in a good mood.
We have analyzed and explored many options to ensure our clock is what people need.
This clock uses 1 AA battery (It last between 12 - 24 months depending on battery brand). We believe this is better than a clock plugged in with a cable so you can use it anywhere.
We currently offer 6 designs: 3 with a numbered dial (easy to read) and 3 with a more minimalist design (black dial with no number). That said, we can make any combination of color frame and dial type. Place your order, leave a note at checkout and we will take care of everything at no extra cost.
