Your circadian rhythm. How messed up is it?

Quote:A circadian rhythm is any biological process that displays an endogenous, entrainable oscillation of about 24 hours. These rhythms are driven by a circadian clock, and rhythms have been widely observed in plants, animals, fungi and cyanobacteria. The term circadian comes from the Latin circa, meaning "around" (or "approximately"), and diem or dies, meaning "day". The formal study of biological temporal rhythms, such as daily, tidal, weekly, seasonal, and annual rhythms, is called chronobiology. Although circadian rhythms are endogenous ("built-in", self-sustained), they are adjusted (entrained) to the local environment by external cues called zeitgebers, commonly the most important of which is daylight.

My circadian rhythm is such a mess. Been that way since as far as I can remember. I'd do just fine if we had a 28 hour rotation cycle but unfortunately that's not the case.

Where the hell does this come from? My daughter has the same problem and I never told her about my sleeping issues until she grew up and told me about her sleeping issues. damned.gif

Join the club. I'm all effed up in the winter here. There's not enough sunlight to get my body clock reset. What little we do have is so low on the horizon, only the tops of the trees get sun.

I worked a rotating swing shift for ten years ~ it took me MONTHS to adjust to a normal day routine when I got out of that slavery.

Things that helped me at the time was having a TOTALLY black/dark sleeping area ~ and always eating my "main" meal a little after I got home ~ helped me to sleep and kept a "routine."

Sometimes I still get a bit out of whack ~ vampire hours, etc ~ but I dunno if it's the circadian thing or just a hitch in my sleep get-along.

Getting a regular dayjob (back at the Museum again, no more gigs until
February something) helped a bit for me...but not much.

Trouble falling asleep even when tired, sleep a hundred short stints
until the alarm blasts.

Oh man sad2.gif

I was born here and should be adjusted to this rhythm but nooo... I just seem to be incapable of adjusting to this. I guess that's why God invented beer and pot. hi5.gif

Seems to really be a sort of epidemic right now.
Just about everyone around me is complaining of it,
together with, of course, increased concentration
difficulties.

Maybe mankind is hyping itself into the December 21
cataclysm...

I always seem to slip into night mode.

I get too much sleep then I end up getting too little... time keeps sliding on me.

Sometimes I get into something and on a roll then I can't sleep at all. Then when I do i wake up feeling kind of fried. Don't like it.

I need some sort of regular schedule yet I have none... and even when I do I grow weary of it as it seems to interfere with other parts of my "cycle".

There is so much more to our timing then merely the mechanizations of todays society. We have lost something important... a life quality, so that we can be part of this money machine. No wonder returns are lacking in this world. With everyone so rigorously controlled and forced to focus on one thing for survival the random spontaneous element is lacking and that timing coincidence alignment that seems to speak of a higher order is drowned out as what should reverberate and resonate gets canceled out or lost instead.

No I don't think we have lost anything, just forgot about some important things.

I have a knapsack sprayer and combine about 5 pesticides (Diazinon, Malathion, Sevin, etc.) and spray around the house. That kills just about everything and I don't have problems with Cicadas or anything else.

I don't know about my circadian rhythm, but I have not experienced a déjà vu in about 40 years.

I'm in my seventh decade on Earth. I know things.

Oh, ... that was Circada not Cicada.

Never mind. I don't know how to kill Circadas.
