From The Trail



Beware of the mesmerizing beat of the Circadian Rhythm. It’s near impossible for most folks not to embrace and move to it’s catchy groovy tune. And daylight savings is a real party buster intent on messing with our internal biological clocks keeping us to task for the sake of eking out every last drop of human productivity in a day.

It’s like this. If we were sunflowers our natural internal mechanism would have us raise our little heads toward the direction of the sun as it rises in the morning, following it’s passage and then gently nodding our heads toward dusk.  A nice little rest would follow until dawn and the whole process would occur naturally again. Sweet!

Wikepedia states that the Circadian Rhythm is a roughly 24 hr. cycle in the biochemical physiological or behavioral processes of all living entities on Earth.  The Circadian Rhythm is built in and self sustained, adjusting to the environment by external cues called zietgebers of which the primary one is daylight. I’m not making this up! And apparently not to blame that I have a hard time waking before daylight. It’s those pesky zietgebers! They’re out to get me. ;-)
