Take Time to Stay in Tune with Your Biological Clock
You’ve probably heard that your body has its own biological clock, but have you ever given much thought as to how important this clock is? Indeed, your biological clock helps you feel alert during the day, hungry at mealtimes, and sleepy at night. Moreover, keeping your body’s daily cycles, or circadian rhythms, in sync is important for your health.
A circadian rhythm is a roughly 24 hour cycle in the physiological processes of living beings, including humans, plants and animals. They affect almost every part of your physiology in one way or another. Circadian rhythms are big influencers in the body. Learning how these rhythms are generated is critical for understanding health.
