logo

Let’s all admit: it’s hard to adjust our body clocks. As much as we’d love to get enough sleep every night, we’d also love to do other things as well. Sometimes we get too fond of this habit that we end up sleeping way past our bedtime and it greatly affects our productivity the next day.

Not only does this result to lack of energy, it also results to lack of focus. We can go on and on about the effects of the lack of sleep towards our body but let’s go straight ahead and talk about adjusting our body clock.

Let’s start from the top, what is a body clock? It’s a preferred schedule your body is most likely to fall asleep. But let’s simplify this even more. We said schedule. What is a schedule made of? A schedule is made up of constant habits. Your habits make up your schedule. Really easy right? Now that we’ve talked about what makes up your body clock, let’s talk more about how to adjust it.

Now here’s one thing about habits, it takes about 21 days to correct a habit or to develop a new one. What does this mean? Well, this means that to break down your body clock, you’d need 21 days. You’ll need 21 days for you to be able to create a new habit. Exactly 21 days? Well, not exactly, you’ll have to get it right first.

It might take some time to adjust into your ideal body clock but once you’ve got it down, it’ll only take 21 days for you to get it right. Consistency is the key to success. It always is. But then again, there are times when we are most definitely inconsistent.

Well, we just have to cope up with our flaws and don’t get discouraged. You might find it hard at first, but once you get it down, there’s no stopping you. In fact, when you get your ideal body clock, it would be hard to deviate from your body clock. Even if you would want to stay away, your body would automatically tell you to rest. It’s okay to struggle but don’t let yourself struggle for too long. Allow yourself to be able to achieve the body clock you need to get the rest you deserve. We can’t all be superhuman. We need rest. Our lives are always a battle, there’s always something to conquer everyday but the first thing you need to conquer is getting enough sleep.
