Sleep and the Biological Clock
Optimal mood and functioning are associated with an appropriate alignment of sleep and wakefulness with the timing of the biological clock. Not only is mood, subjective impression of sleep quality, feeling of vigour and activity a affected by the time of awakening but also by the manner of the awakening (whether voluntary or involuntary). One of the main synchronisers of the biological clock with the 24 hour day is light, particularly dawn light.
The biological clock is particularly sensitive and its timing resettable by the effects of dawn light. Involuntary or unexpected awakenings are associated with a stress response. It is possible to reduced this stress by planning awakenings. A combination of a planned awakening, supported by appropriate exposure to dawn light can lead to: wakefulness that is properly synchronised with the biological clock, an awakening that is stress free and associated with feelings of vigour and pleasantness and consequently a day starting with optimal mood and function.
