Like clockwork

The secret life of your bodyclock by Horizon was on last night. It took me on a journey into the secret world of the human internal body clock

Our body clock controls what we do and how well we do it.

In relation to When is asleep not asleep? This program explored the idea of ‘light’ improving our sleep patterns. One third of over 65 year olds have trouble sleeping. Elderly people with Alzheimers and Dementia typically sleep undisturbed for fifteen minutes at the most! This often leads to symptoms of depression…


Every moment of our 24 hour day is influenced by our body clock. We think best between the hours of 10am and 12pm . We all suffer from a ‘post lunch time dip’ which generates ‘natural depression’, as we all feel the pit falls of life more severely after lunch time. Modern life tends to ignores the body clock. We think we can do what we want when want. We can’t!

Keep your health ticking over and choose to follow your clockwork. How do you over the come the ‘post lunch time dip’ or the urge to take a nap?
