‘Circadian rhythm’ simply means your ‘body clock’. Your body is designed for certain kinds of activities that are governed by certain secretions to be released at certain points of time in a period of 24 hours. For example, after sunset your body is designed to produce more melatonin, which helps you to sleep better. Similarly, when you get up in the morning, your body is expected to produce more cortisol, which helps you to remain active throughout the day. At night, your body is expected to produce lowest temperature. This way, body functions with certain kind of rules. In case, your body keeps up with these rules, your body will result in its highest performance. In case this rhythm is disturbed, let’s say the melatonin is not produced at the right time or cortisol is not produced in the morning, there are chances that you will feel weak or dizzy and may be during the night you might feel more alert and not sleepy. This means that any disturbance in the circadian rhythm will attract illness or weakness. Tools to fix the circadian rhythm In order to correct your body clock, you need certain kind of tools. I shall give you three such tools that will help you achieve the right balance. These tools are very simple: light, time of eating and sleep. Body Clock 1. Light 2. Time of eating 3. Sleep Out of the three tools, the most interesting one is the light. This simple tool of light that is able to fix your circadian rhythm applies on any one and anywhere to help your body clock to function correctly.

Circadian rhythm is the 24-hour internal clock in our brain that regulates cycles of alertness and sleepiness by responding to light changes in our environment.
