In our last blog post, we made a general introduction to the concept of circadian rhythm (CR) and its importance in maintaining balance in our daily routines and sleep. In this blogpost, we’re going to take a little closer look at one particular aspect of the impact of CR: supporting the maintenance of healthier food intake and more efficient weight control.
Many of the cycles in nature – like bears hibernating or deciduous trees losing their leaves – are often calibrated by the light of the sun. Its daily appearance and disappearance over weeks and months is like a slow-rocking cradle for our systems, balancing between periods of activity and rest. Sleep is a crucial part of maintaining this balance for humans.
