Can You Fix Your Sleep Schedule?

Over holidays, many students, even teachers, go to bed whenever they want. The breaks allows us to go to bed at early hours of the morning and wake up late in the afternoon. When school time comes around, everyone knows they need to go to bed early because they have to wake up early but can’t because they’ve spent days on a horrendous schedule.

Many people lose sleep after having breaks off, a made bed represents the lack of sleep.

Everyone wants to fix their schedules so they can get back into the “school mode” but, as a result of the holidays they can’t. There is a way, which tends to help with this problem. Basically, you would have to stop eating 10-12 hours from when you want to wake up.

This means that, if you want to wake up at 6:00AM you would have to stop all eating at 6pm-8pm. This helps you wake up because your organs have their own clocks that respond to food. A big late-night meal can throw them out of rhythm.

When preparing to fix your sleep schedule, eating 10-12 hours prior to your wake time will allow your body to realize it needs food. Once this message gets sent to the brain, it will cause your body to wake in order to get the nutrition it needs.

According to various websites such as Buffersocial, eating at your 8 most active hours are the best idea. This is because the internal clock in our body will release glucose at different rate depending on what we eat.

Our brain functions well with 25 grams of glucose, so while we sleep, our brain releases this glucose at a slower rate. When that 25 grams runs out, we tend to wake up to replenish our brains with glucose.
