BUILD UP YOUR BODY CLOCK?

YOURS (UK) - - Energy Health Special -

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.
