What is my circadian rhythm?

Your circadian rhythm is your internal body clock which is regulated by light and dark in a cycle of approximately 24 hours. When the nights get longer, and there are less daylight hours available, your body may not produce cortisol or melatonin at the right times (which makes us wake and sleep), causing energy slumps, low mood and irregular eating patterns or cravings. This may mean your circadian rhythm is imbalanced. If your body is woken with a "shock" at the sound of a shrill alarm in the morning and when it is still dark outside, your body may not be ready to wake up, causing low mood from the moment you wake up. It is important to keep your circadian rhythm in sync to prevent these possible issues arising. (Web MD) 10
