A disrupted circadian rhythm affects our body and brain

Your circadian rhythm is extremely important. We have said that many times, and we will keep telling you. Studies show that the circadian rhythm can affect our body and our brain. It sounds like a very difficult term, the circadian rhythm. So what is the circadian rhythm? Let’s start with that!

 

What is the circadian rhythm?

 

Actually, the circadian rhythm is simpler than you might think because the circadian rhythm is also called the 24-hour rhythm. Every person has a biological clock. For example, this clock ensures that we eat and sleep on time. The circadian rhythm is the 24-hour rhythm of the biological clock and regulates, among other things, the body temperature and the sleep-wake rhythm.

 

Disruptions in the circadian rhythm

 

Circadian rhythm disorders are very common. The current 24-hour society we live in makes it easy for people to develop a disturbance in the sleep-wake rhythm.The “modern” man has an increased risk of various ciradian disorder.               

The delayed sleep phase disorder causes people to fall asleep later that the environment and often have to get up earlier. In addition, there are also environment-related disorders. In many places in the world there is light pollution, this can also disturb our circadian rhythm. Others have social obligations or work that has to be done at different times, this is also called the shift work disorder.

 

New research

 

Several studies have shown a link between circadian rhythm disorder and disease. People with a circadian disorder have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and even various types of cancer. In addition, a relatively new study shows that circadian disorders also affect our mood and health on a daily basis.

 

Recognize circadian disruptions

 

How do you find out if you have a circadian disorder? There are a number of symptoms that are easy to recognize.Therefore, pay attention to the following symptoms:

  • Difficulty falling asleep
  • Wake up regularly at night 
  • Waking up tired with enough sleep (7 to 8 hours)
