I have completely reversed my circadian rhythm.
yea what is that
Circadian means being, having, characterized by, or occurring in approximately 24 hour periods or cycles; in relation to sleep cycles.
A biological activity with a periodicity of 24 hrs that is independent of environmental variation
taken from the Latin words meaning "around" and "day"
of or relating to biological processes occurring at 24-hour intervals; "circadian rhythms"
...I still dont know
I've done that... actually, I'm trying to do that.
.....george, you're becoming nocturnal?
...oh, in simple terms, circadian rhythm basically boils down to this: falling asleep early in the evening often results in waking up early in the morning. On the opposite side, falling asleep late in the evening often results in waking up much later in the morning (or afternoon). This is without the use of alarm clocks.
well, then in that case, my circadian rhythm has been about the same for 4 years. Falling asleep late at night and waking up late in the day is how i live. Then again, on school days i sleep late, but wake up early, but it never seems to distrupt my circadian rhythm...i hope im using that word right
I must be really fuckin stupid, because I still don't get it.
You hit the nail on the head there, didn't you?
reversing your sleep time and awake time. so now, assuming you were going to bed at 10pm and waking up at 10 am, you would be going to bed at 10am to wake up at 10pm. becoming nocturnal, for most people, involves reversal of circadian rhythyms.
screw all of u i'm out of here.
I was going to say, but I ended up typing a long post and am writing a multi-page thing in word right now...
i change my circadian rhythm thing...from season to season...well from school year to summer... in the summer i go to sleep about 3 (AM) and i wake up at about 3 (PM) in the school year i go to sleep about 10 (PM) wake up about 6:30(AM)...i wish it was summer.
