Do you feel in tune with your body or do you feel out of whack when it comes to the logistics of your own sleep? As humans, we all have a circadian rhythm that is better known as a body clock. It’s a natural, internal system that is designed to regulate feelings of being awake and being tired during a 24-hour period. Controlled by the area of the brain that responds to light, it is the main reason people crave sleep when it’s dark out and feel energized when it’s light out.
