BUILD UP YOUR BODY CLOCK?
Your body’s natural rhythms change as the years tick by, which could also have an impact your on how energetic you feel. “In your 20s, 30s and 40s your body clock is pretty robust,” says Dr Curtis. “It moves with the peaks and troughs of the sleep hormone melatonin. Your melatonin levels are high at night making you feel tired and low during the day, so you feel more awake.” As we get older the peaks and troughs become less pronounced, so if you want to maintain your energy and vitality you need to work a little harder to manage your body clock through diet, exercise and good-quality sleep.
