Embracing the Change - How to Harmonise Your Circadian Rhythms This Autumn

As we bid farewell to the warmth of summer and welcome the crisp air of autumn, our bodies undergo a natural transition. The change in daylight and temperature can impact our circadian rhythms, the internal clock that governs our sleep-wake cycle.

But by being mindful of our circadian rhythms and making small adjustments to our daily routines, we can embrace the beauty of autumn while staying healthy and energised. Read on to understand how you can adjust your daily routines to stay in sync with the season and maintain your optimal health and well-being

 

Understanding Circadian Rhythms & Seasonal Change

Circadian rhythms are biological processes that follow a roughly 24-hour cycle, influencing sleep, mood, and overall health. They are primarily regulated by exposure to natural light, which signals our brain to wake up or wind down. As the days grow shorter and cooler, this can bring disruption to our circadian rhythms, leading to changes in sleep patterns, mood, and energy levels. This is why it's common to feel more tired or experience a shift in mood as we transition into autumn. However, by being mindful of our routines and making small adjustments, we can minimise these effects and embrace the season with ease.

Embrace Natural Light:

Start your day with exposure to natural sunlight to help regulate your sleep-wake cycle. Open curtains or take a morning walk to soak up the sun's rays.

Stay Active:

Engage in regular exercise, preferably outdoors, to boost energy levels and improve sleep quality. Activities like walking, cycling, or yoga can help keep your body and mind in harmony.

 

Mind Your Meals:

Maintain a balanced diet and avoid heavy meals close to bedtime. Eating nutritious foods at regular intervals can support your body's natural rhythms. 

Create a Sleep Sanctuary:

Keep your bedroom dark, quiet, and cool to promote restful sleep. Consider using blackout curtains and reducing screen time before bed to signal to your body that it's time to wind down.

Establish a Relaxing Bedtime Routine:

Wind down with calming activities like reading, taking a warm bath, or practicing meditation. Consistency is key, so try to stick to a regular sleep schedule even on weekends.

As the season changes, so should our habits, let this season be a time of renewal and rest, as we harmonise our internal clocks with the natural world around us.
