The Most Important Rhythm Of Our Lives
Sleeping at night used to consume at least 80% of my daily thoughts. I think getting sleep kept me awake at night. I’m just joking, I think. But I mentioned how I was having trouble sleeping for the last 3 years or more.
It began when I moved back to Philadelphia. I lived in the mountainous ski area before and didn’t seem to have any problem’s being cozy and sleeping through the night. But after coming back to Philly I was always hot at night and the slightest light would keep me up for hours.
Ever notice that around 3AM the sky starts to gradually turn brighter. No matter how slight the effect I woke at 3:30 AM without fail. (It didn’t help much if I went to bed at 1AM either) That is until I began wearing a sleep mask. May be old-fashioned but still gives me 85% more rest than I’d had before.
You may want to reference my post dealing with the severe lack of productivity from lack of sleep.
I wanted to share this bit of information with you. We’ve all heard of our rhythms that affect our ability to sleep. The Circadian rhythms.
Circadian rhythms are physical, mental and behavioral changes that follow a roughly 24-hour cycle, responding primarily to light and darkness in an organism’s environment. They are found in most living things, including animals, plants and many tiny microbes. The study of circadian rhythms is called chronobiology.

Fortunately, there are some things people with delayed sleep phase syndrome can do to help reset their biological clocks:
Schedule a doctor visit. …Adjust your bedtime. …Do not nap. …Do not sleep in. …Be strict about your sleep schedule. …Try light therapy. …Avoid night-light.
The important thing is avoiding light and keeping your eyes covered certainty goes a long ways for people like me who basically get no sleep at all.
