Nearly every living thing has a circadian rhythm, including humans. In people, the main mechanism that regulates circadian rhythm is located in the hypothalamus of the brain. Your circadian rhythm is like your internal clock. It’s synchronized with the changes in natural light at sunrise and sunset, and it’s what instructs you to sleep when it’s dark out and wake up when it’s light. Unfortunately, it doesn’t cancel out the problems associated with sleep disorders.

Watch this informative video to learn more about your circadian rhythm and how it affects your body. You’ll learn why you tend to think more clearly in the late morning hours, and why you feel the urge to nap later in the afternoon.
