This is what my Apple Watch measured when I got up this morning. I have set a target of 7 hours sleep and just made the grade.
Currently I am reading the book ‘the Circadian Code’ by Dr. Sachin Panda. Actually I am listening to the audible version of the book.
Incidentally, the subject won Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology in 2017. And remember the 2016 prize was for Autophagy, the most important subject in intermittent fasting.
I am now about to combine intermittent fasting and circadian rhythm into my wellness journey. Actually, in addition to sleep, time restricted eating (TRE) which is the other name of intermittent fasting that is central to circadian rhythm.
It’s important, considering that the objective of both are not just weight loss, but methods to avoid chronic diseases into old age.
It’s clearly a need, as we have a growing population who live longer, but with one or many chronic illnesses, thereby becoming a burden to themselves and others.
