The media is using “daylight savings time” to talk about circadian rhythms. Personally, I went back to bed because my body said “6:30” when the clock said “7:30.” And you?? Did you adapt to the time change??
Psychology Today offers a lot of information about circadian rhythms.
On my blog Casual Approach Rejected Entirely, I wrote about my sleep problems and perhaps it bears repeating!?
Lavender is touted as a sleep remedy. Personally, I sprinkle a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil at the top of my sheet each night when I go to bed. Frankly, I don’t know if it helps because I also drink Chamomile with Lavender tea an hour before retiring. (Next purchase: Nighty Night or Nighty Night Valerian?) Furthermore, I wear a Philip Stein sleep bracelet. Honestly, I do not get a good night’s sleep and desperately try various remedies. Oh yes, I use Melatonin (from the health food store “free of gluten, wheat, daily, soy, corn, preservatives, artificial colors, and most common allergens”). ~~ Someone might say I have too much on my mind?! I’m always thinking about my garden and/or preparing blog messages!! Believe me, I’m not a hypochondriac; I don’t have a list of ailments. I just don’t get a good night’s sleep!! I’ve been practicing health and nutrition for almost forty years; I’m selective of the products I use. (Example: Heirloom seeds for my veggie garden.) 😉
Preparing blog messages is a counterbalance to strenuous work in the garden. I couldn’t resist the temptation to address daylight savings time. (LOL) The above quote comes from a blog message (under construction) about lavender. I ordered lavender seeds yesterday (and dandelion seeds. Yes, I’m planning to plant both–and ginger root).
