What is a Sleep Schedule?
You body has an internal clock that follows a pattern. You might notice when following a sleep schedule that you often wake up just before your alarm. This phenomenon is not due to the fact that your body knows it’s 7:59; rather, your body knows it’s been 7 hours and it’s time to wake up.
A sleep schedule is simply going to bed at the same time each day and waking up at the same time each day. If you follow a sleep schedule, your body will learn the pattern of your sleep and will set a natural rhythm that will help you stay on track throughout the day.
When you’re constantly changing the time that you’re waking up or going to bed, your body won’t have that consistency and will not function properly. You’ll find that you’re tired at random moments or that you have energy when trying to go to sleep.
