Help your circadian rhythm (for better daytime energy and sleep) with this free morning ritual
A great way to help support a healthy circadian rhythm and promote good levels and timing of cortisol and melatonin is to get outside in natural light within 30–60 minutes after waking.
A few interesting points to note about this
- this practice works on cloudy days too!
- the way light affects us through closed windows is incredibly different, getting outside is key
- do not wear sunglasses for this as the effect is about sunlight entering through the eyes (regular glasses/contacts are fine and of course don’t directly look at the sun)
This is one of the best free ways to promote better wakefulness during the day and better/easier sleep at night!
