Have you ever heard of the circadian rhythm?
The circadian rhythm, also known as your internal body clock, is responsible for making you feel alert and sleepy throughout the day. Ideally, you should feel most alert early in the morning and sleepy as it becomes darker and later in the day.
The circadian rhythm is the reason why teenagers find it difficult to go to bed and wake up early, because their melatonin is released later than adults and children, so they’re awake later. Jet lag and shift work also interfere with the natural body clock as well as long and irregular hours.
Get ready to hack your circadian rhythm for sleep:
✅ Go to bed and get up at the same time every day and diffuse trees and flowers
✅ When you wake up, take a morning walk and get some sunlight on your face
✅ Try a sunlight alarm clock that wakes you up with light
✅ Pop citrus and mint oils in your diffuser to start waking up your senses
