ways to reset your sleep cycle

Our sleep schedules vary from person to person, largely depending on the environmental indications that we give to our bodies from setting alarms, being active during the day, eating healthy, and getting sufficient sleep. Resetting the body clock is very important for getting the sleep schedule back on track. According to the National Institutes of Health, our body clocks regulate our physical and mental stability, behavioural changes, sleep patterns, hormone secretion, and more. A seriously misaligned body clock and irregular sleep schedule can be common causes of sleep disorder. According to the NSF, approximately 1% of adults have advanced sleep phase disorder which means they sleep early, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., and wake up early, between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m.
