What is the circadian rhythm?

Have you ever wondered why we become tired and sleepy at specific hours of the night, as if our bodies know that it’s our bedtime already? Well, it’s because of the internal clocks within us, otherwise known as the circadian rhythm. Circadian rhythms are the 24-hour cycle which helps control our daily schedules for sleep and wakefulness throughout the day. Your circadian rhythm can be affected by a range of external factors, especially by darkness and light in your natural surroundings. Various internal factors like hormone levels, immune system, and body temperature can also impact your circadian rhythms. When your circadian rhythm is properly synchronised, it can help you have a restful night’s sleep. However, when this is thrown off - through various factors like shift work – it can disrupt your sleep patterns and can cause sleep problems like insomnia.
