Our biological clock is what makes us wake up and start functioning when the sun rises and get sleepy when night falls.
Usually when night falls, our bodies secrete melatonin, known as the “sleep hormone.” This is said to help us fall asleep, and is our biological clock’s way of regulating our sleep.
The sight of sunlight soon after we wake up is what lets our bodies know it’s morning. This resets our biological clock.
Just as it’s important for us to take in the morning sunlight, being around too much bright light at night can confuse our biological clock and interfere with the secretion of melatonin, making it difficult to fall asleep.
