Do you ever have trouble falling asleep?
Our circadian rhythms, or ‘body clocks’, release the hormone melatonin to signal our bodies to sleep.
Traditionally, the natural light-dark cycles of daytime and nighttime have determined this rhythm, and a recent American study showed that exposure to electric lighting interferes with it.
On average, our bodies respond two hours late when we use lights and screens.
However, within a few days of living in the wilderness without lights, the rhythm returns to normal.
Interestingly, wilderness camping also erased differences between early-risers and night-owls.
