Brighten your morning.
Wake up at the same time, and bathe yourself in sunlight. It enables your circadian rhythms, which are governed by your body’s “master clock” in the hypothalamus gland, to stay in sync with the 24-hour day. In the absence of light, your body’s sleep-wake cycle wants to delay by an average of twelve minutes every day and work on a 24.2-hour rhythm. Experts don’t understand why, but think it may relate to the sun’s seasonal shifts. That means your body wants to keep pushing your bedtime to later, but if you let that happen and still have to get up at the same time every day, you’re going to be tired.
