Springtime comes with an influx of energy, but the Daylight Savings time change can throw your circadian rhythm out of whack and set you back a few weeks (or more).
The majority of us have a natural rhythm that syncs with light: rise with the sun and rest in the darkness. But modern conveniences that include 24/7 exposure to lighting and stimulation can cause a disturbance in natural patterns. If you consider yourself a night owl, chances are you’ve trained your body into that pattern. Burning the midnight oil occasionally isn’t a problem. But if you continually push yourself beyond natural limits, your glands become weakened and you exhaust your natural resources. Feeling tired but wired or catching your second wind when it’s time for bed is a big sign that your adrenals have been affected.
For more energy and resilience, prioritize healthy sleep hygiene and if you usually stay up after 10pm, make small, incremental steps towards an earlier bedtime. Everyone is different, but give one or two of these suggestions a try and start sleeping better tonight!
