Why do you recommend going to bed at approximately 10PM and waking up at 6AM?Updated 2 years ago

The best way to rejuvenate and heal is by getting more hours of sleep before midnight. The reason for this is that when you work with the natural circadian rhythm of your body, it allows you to go to bed a few hours after it gets dark and wake up with the sun. This regulates your body’s ability to produce cortisol upon waking and start to lower cortisol by bedtime which is exactly what should happen. When you are exposed to bright lights at night and stay up late, it produces higher levels of cortisol and decreases melatonin production causing health and sleep issues.
