Yet with busy work schedules, late nights, and disrupted sleep cycles, it can be difficult getting the recommended 7 to 9 hours every night. An out-of-sync body clock is usually to blame if you’re struggling with sleep as it affects our circadian rhythms; one of the two biological systems in our brain determining the quality, timing, and length of sleep.
