How often have you tried to keep your eyes wide open and your minds attentive during important meetings or lectures in the daytime? All you could fantasize about is your cozy beds. Finally, it’s time to return home, snuggle up in your blankets, and fall off into the dream world while time passes with numb feet. There is nothing better, right?

2 hours later you find yourselves wide awake in your beds, wondering where all the exhaustion escaped. And how?

For some people, this might only happen once, but for others, it develops into a chronic problem that disrupts daily tasks.

Circadian cycles regulate your tiredness and alertness cycles.

It is very important to understand the role of circadian rhythm if you want to understand these disoriented sleeping patterns. These cycles of waking and sleeping are caused by your body’s biological clock, which is controlled by chemicals, receptors, and organs.

In the morning, your hypothalamus releases neurotransmitters and chemicals that rejuvenate your energy and help the body to wake up fresh and energized. Melatonin, a substance that relaxes the body and is released at night, provides support to this.

Several factors disturb the circadian cycle, causing interference in your sleeping pattern.

Poor sleeping habits profoundly affect your sleeping/waking up cycle. If you stay up late at night, your body struggles to adjust but isn’t able to catch up at once. Having caffeine at the night stimulates your brain and affects how you feel during the day.

Furthermore, if you are too active at night then your brain starts associating activities with nighttime, hence it gets difficult to get a good night’s sleep and be energized during the day.

Apart from this, several sleep disorders such as narcolepsy, insomnia, sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, sleepwalking, etc., also derange your cycle. If any of these conditions occur, you must visit your health professional to get them treated at once. As soon as it is treated, your body will engage itself in reestablishing your circadian cycle.

Adrenal glands are located near the kidney which produces stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. During long-term emotional instability or stress, your body goes under adrenal fatigue which keeps your mind reeling and tired. Chronic stress or depressive states also makes it harder for the body to induce wakefulness after a troubled night’s sleep.

The kind of profession you have also alter your physiological state. If during the day, you are seated in a sedimentary position most of the time; working hard, focusing harder, then your mind may get exhausted, and then in the daytime, as soon as you let your bodies relax, the physical energy stored up throughout the time seek ways to expand and keep you alert.

Your lifestyle choices may help reestablish your unsettled sleeping cycle.

A problem arises when you start disturbing your sleeping routine by waking up late at night and trying to accommodate my sleeping till late afternoon the next day or taking naps in the afternoon. This changes the whole trajectory of your body that is used to follow a biological clock.

Stress is a major factor to causes an inclination in your otherwise stable health graph. It is imperative to bring a positive change in your lives that can have a reversing effect on your overburdened minds to keep your sleeping routine at a balanced pace.

Also if your job requires you to stay immobile for a very long period, take breaks even if it is to walk around the corner or to just have a random chat with your colleague but make sure to move your legs around.

Having well-balanced, steady circadian rhythms is the most crucial step in climbing the stairs towards a happy and healthy day. Your body’s whole physiology relies on your sleep cycle. So it is better to not let your body suffer by taking the wrong step and having a sleep hangover at the worst time; at the beginning of a new day.
