lets make this snappy..is that the expression ?
I almost wrote snazzy . then I was like nah that doesn’t look right , then I was like sh*t did I already do this post on sleep . I can’t remember . me tired
So firstly lets chat circadian rhythm .. no that is not cicada’s with exceptional dance skills .. but that would be amazing .. are cicadas just crickets ? what are they .. for some reason they make me think of swamps .
(*note i just googled a cicada , its like a moth / cricket hybrid .. terrifying really)
f*ck me i need to sleep ok .
but heres a nice image i made
so its a pretty serious thing , it has a direct affect of our hormones and mood . from every body of work i have looked at to every health guru,doctor and researcher will site sleep as the NUMBER ONE attribute of life that has the greatest effect on OVERALL HEALTH !
so whats up with our sleep at the moment ?
-stimulants are used regularly and without thought (yep that 3rd coffee by 2 pm is still f*cking your circadian rhythm come 10pm)
-lack of exercise (exercise has a direct affect on the hormones as well as energy cycles , as well as brain chemicals responsible for mood)
-lack of nutrients (magnesium is one of the most depleted nutrients in the modern diet and is in fact the greatest relaxant and most useful supplement to help with sleep disorders )
– indoor lifestyles , as the cicadian is immediately responsive to sunning the lack of which and the more artificial lights as well as not exposing yourself to sunlight upon waking (apparently every time you wake up you should run to a window/outside and open your eyes to the brightest outdoor light , this is the ultimate reset energy boost!)
– LAPTOPS AND SCREENS (yep that blue glow from the phone/computer/tv/laptop/ipad is directly f*cking up your rhythm)
SO i can’t help knock that coffee out of your hand, kick you out into the sunshine every morning , shove your face full of magnesium dense food and get you climbing a tree …
I CAN HELP YOU WITH THE LAST ONE !
FIRSTLY ITS FREE
SO you cheap ass’s have already downloaded it .. typical
“f.lux makes your computer screen look like the room you’re in, all the time. When the sun sets, it makes your computer look like your indoor lights. In the morning, it makes things look like sunlight again.
Tell f.lux what kind of lighting you have, and where you live. Then forget about it. f.lux will do the rest, automatically.”
