7 Ways to Hack your Circadian Rhythm [Visual] | ecogreenlove

To learn how to hack your sleep for productive days (and for deep sleep), the first thing you need to do is to consider circadian rhythms.

Your natural sleep-wake cycle might not be conducive to your current lifestyle or schedule. Or maybe you want to wake up earlier to be more productive throughout the day. If this is the case, you’ll need to adjust to your new schedule or routine. The tips below will help you not only hack your circadian rhythm but will increase time in deep sleep and help you wake up rested and ready to take on the day!

The circadian rhythms, according to The Sleep Foundation, “are 24-hour cycles that are part of the body’s internal clock, running in the background to carry out essential functions and processes.”

There are multiple circadian rhythms constantly working in the body—digestion and ovulation, to name a few and are coordinated by a “master clock” in your body maintained by the brain. The circadian rhythm that most are familiar with, and the easiest one to hack, is the sleep-wake cycle. When your sleep-wake cycle is healthy and consistent, that particular circadian rhythm is aligned. However, it can easily get disrupted, leading to insomnia, poor sleep quality, frequent nighttime waking, sleep apnea, and a myriad of health problems.
