Circadian Rhythm and YOU!
Circadian rhythm is defined as changes in behavior, physiology, and gene expression that occur over a twenty-four hour period. Examples include sleep-wake, changes in heart rate, and mental acuity. Failure to remain in sync with the natural day-night cycle, such as when experiencing get lag or working night shift, can have mild to severe consequences. In this talk we will explore how circadian rhythm effects your behavior, health, and performance (physical and mental). We will also explore ways we can improve our sleep hygiene and behavior so our circadian clocks work optimally.
