Circadian Rhythms Can Save A Marriage

By Cameron Elliott

Every list of tips and every piece of advice Mick found on sleeping better mentioned something along the lines of having "good sleep hygiene: having a regular bedtime and getting up at the same time every morning. Supposedly, the tips argued, this keeps your body in its natural sleep cycle, based on circadian rhythms.

An accountant, Mick didn't believe it for a second. He was a busy man, often crunching numbers late into the night. Exhausted all week, he sleeps all weekend. Sure, nights when he didn't have to work late Mick could sleep until 3 or 4, and he rarely wanted to get out of bed in the mornings. But Mick wasn't concerned. It was his system, and he liked it.

Bridget, Mick's wife, was of a different mind on the subject. Bridget often argued with her husband about his bizarre sleeping patterns. It eventually got so bad that Bridget threatened to leave Mick. In a last ditch effort to save his marriage, Mick agreed to start sleeping a normal schedule.

The couple had a tough time at first. Mick tossed and turned all night and kept Bridget up. As an elementary school teacher, she had to get up extra early. They were deeply in love and committed to making the marriage work out, so they were willing to wait things out.

And, eventually, things got easier. Mick actually began falling asleep at 11pm, and rising easily with his wife the following morning at 7:30am. Mick was a changed man, full of vigor. He crunched numbers like no one else, creating budgets unlike anyone had ever seen, tax returns that were works of art.

Mick was at last listening to his body. Instead of chugging down pots of coffee to stay awake all night, he was going to bed when he felt tired. Circadian rhythms, the very thing Mick so quickly dismissed as quackery, keeps his body regulated and in harmony with environmental changes like light and dark. Mick now had a regular sleep schedule, now had good sleep hygiene. And his circadian rhythm, his body's internal clock, was able to stay in time.

Things are going pretty good for Mick and Bridget, and it's all thanks to our body's natural circadian rhythms.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
