The Health, Happiness, & Performance Show Ep. 2: Building strong circadian rhythms

Building strong circadian rhythms can dramatically improve many aspects of your life including:

  • Improving your mood
  • Increasing your energy levels
  • Moderating your appetite
  • Promoting a healthy metabolism
  • Optimizing immune function
  • Improving mental and physical performance

In today’s show we cover how circadian rhythms work, and why you need to be an active participant in the process to build a robust circadian rhythm.

What we’ll cover on building strong circadian rhythms

Many people have taken to using a SAD lamp in the morning, doing time-restricted eating, and wearing blue blockers at night as a means to building strong circadian rhythms. While these are all beneficial habits, they’re certainly not enough to build a robust circadian rhythms. As a result, many people are missing out on the full benefits of building strong circadian rhythms.

To help you learn why, we begin buy discussing how the timing mechanism of circadian rhythms works in your cells. From there, we’ll move on to how an area of your brain called the suprachiasmatic nucleus(SCN) works. The SCN functions as a master clock that integrates light information and orchestrates the tying of circadian rhythms to the day night cycle.

We’ll also cover the primary signal for synchronizing the clocks in all your cells, organs and tissues with one another. As a result, you’ll be running like a well-oiled machine.

Finally, we’ll talk about how you build strong biological rhythms that help you maximize your performance throughout the day. We cover the most important factor for building a strong circadian rhythm, which drives strong behavioral rhythms.

The combination of circadian and behavioral rhythms effectively builds how you look, feel, and perform every day. Putting forth the effort to build strong circadian rhythms yields powerful benefit to your health happiness, and performance, which is why we emphasize them so much.
