Your Internal Body clock or better say circadian rhythm is a set clock of your body, that manages your sleep and wake cycle. It does many other functions like setting your hormonal levels, hunger pangs, digestion, and other activities. but here, we confine only to the sleep-wake cycle function.

There is an area in the brain that controls the light signals sensed by the eyes. This information is sent to different areas of the brain. This amount of light signals then decides the release of the Sleep signaling hormone called Melatonin. This is this hormone that regulates your sleep. Melatonin is released in darkness. This means if you are watching blue screens and mobile phones for long periods at night, then you are troubling your brain.

Another theory is that people suffering from different mental disorders like anxiety, ADHD, memory loss, depression, chronic fatigue, dementia, Alzheimer’s, migraine, headaches suffer from hormone disturbances.
