DON’T EAT AFTER 6PM 🤨 Really? Let’s talk through this one for mythbusting advent calendar day 14.
.
Many living things have 24-hour cycles called circadian clocks 🕗, which encourage different activities at different times, for example plants 🌱photosynthesising during the day and nocturnal 🌚 animals hunting at night. We have light/dark cycles (so we feel sleepy at night 😴), feeding/fasting cycles, and others that govern physiological processes and hormone levels.
.
So should you eat after 6pm? Sure, if you want to! It’s not like at 6pm your body suddenly switches from metabolising food for energy to storing it as fat. It doesn’t work like that 🙅🏼.
.
This rule has become popular again recently thanks to the rising interest in intermittent fasting. There is definitely some research which suggests that this can be beneficial for some groups of people (notably males with diabetes). However, downsides include food anxiety and restrict-overeat cycles.
.
Also, you actually fast every night anyway, which for most people is the 8-12 hours between dinner and breakfast. So technically you’re kind of doing it on your own 🤷🏼‍♀️!
.
In the end, a rule is a rule, a diet is a diet. 🙄 What if you get home from work late one day? If you’re hungry you should eat, not obey some external rule that says you shouldn’t. Your feeding/fasting cycle is essentially ghrelin release ➡️ hunger ➡️ eat ➡️ insulin release ➡️ time ➡️ ghrelin release ➡️ hunger. And so on. Don’t override your hunger signals, you need to eat!
.
Conclusion: rely on internal rather than external cues where possible. 😊

Finally getting used to the 5 am dash from Amagamsett to the hospital each morning. Changing your sleep schedule can be difficult, the most difficult part being able to get in bed and to sleep. Adjusting your biological clock is best done in increments. Hour increments are really the maximum your body can handle so it's best change in hour intervals. For example, if you're used to going to sleep at 1 am but need to start getting to bed by 10 pm so that you can get up at 6am and still get 8 hours of sleep, shoot for getting into bed an hour earlier each night (12am the first night, 11 pm the next, and then 10pm the next). Sound sleep is a necessity no matter what you do so be sure to get the proper amount each night 😴

Sleep is arguably one of the most undervalued components of health in today’s society. 25% of my upcoming book, The Four Pillar Plan, is dedicated to sleep - the science, patient feedback and over 16 years clinical experience. (Pre-order link to the book in my bio above)

For me having a #NoTech90 before bed significantly improves the quality of my sleep. What is the best tip that has helped you sleep better?

Ok, moment of truth -
Are you guilty of waking up during the dark, going to work inside all day, and then coming home and staying indoors? 🙋🏼 It's such a struggle some days when I want to stay curled up warm inside all day, especially since my office is inside my home, but I know it's SO critical to get outside, see the sunlight ☀️, and breathe in that fresh air (even when it is freeezing out!) ❄️ I'm committing to getting outdoors today to sync my #circadianrhythm , breathe fresh circulated air, and refresh.  I challenge you to do the same!! Comment below if you did it! 👍🏻

Ps - these are the 6 Environmental Stressors all my elite clients go through in Phase 1 of Balance Protocol.... if you haven't grabbed your spot for 2018 yet, go to maggieberghoff.com/consultation and let's see if you're a good fit!! There is no better time than now (especially since I can only work with a small # of clients per year due to the extreme 1:1 interaction of the program, and my spots for 2018 are filling FAST!)

Loving my Sunday, where the day is marked not by the passage of time but by the performance of health rituals.  An hour of yoga, then juicing, @bulletproof coffee...currently some much needed late morning heliotherapy.  34° and sweating in a t-shirt in the sun.  The moment as it is!

More on jet lag... it's a circadian rhythm imbalance.

What's a circadian rhythm? It's our hard wired 24 hour sleep/wake cycle. We get up when the sun comes up and we feel tired and go to sleep when nighttime comes and it's dark 🌙

Along with day and night, two hormones play an important role in this cycle - cortisol is the one that gets us up in the morning and melatonin is the one that gives us a good nights sleep.

When we cross time zones, the sun is rising at a different time to what our cortisol is used to...and nighttime comes at a different time to our melatonin. That's why we end up feeling tired and awake at the wrong times.

So why the picture of the pool? 🏊🏻 doing cardio exercise raises your cortisol. So by swimming vigorously (or doing some other form of cardio that increases your heart rate) in the morning, you are driving cortisol up as it should be and helping your body adjust its cycle quicker. Likewise by getting out in the morning sunshine you are helping your rhythms recalibrate as soon as possible as the light is sending a message into your body that it's definitely daytime 🌞

I can tell you now it doesn't stop you from feeling like 💩 #seconddayjetlagworsethsnfirst but it can help you regain your natural circadian rhythm faster.

I'm also using all the 'up' and stimulating essential oils during the day like peppermint, lemongrass, lemon and wild orange (the last 2 not on my skin as they are phototoxic on skin exposed to sunlight for up to 12 hours). By the way, you can have circadian rhythm imbalances even if you aren't travelling across time zones - ever feel tired but wired? Wake up feeling exhausted after a full nights sleep? These sorts of imbalances need more than a swim and some sun though... And now we're off on another flight to another time zone to mess with our circadian rhythms even more 😂

Happy Friday Sleep seekers you've made it to the end of the week just in time for #sleepfactfriday .
Did you know? 🤔➡️The lightest sleep stage of the night is from 3am onwards. This is because all of your small's sleep 😴 hormone 🌟melatonin 🌟has left their body to get them ready to wake up 🌅
.
👉🏻Post 3am it's natural that your small is noticeably in a much lighter sleep and they may:look restless and unsettled💥wake/rouse more frequently💥fidget💥move around a lot more💥If they're overtired they may even wake ready for the day 🙈😴💥.

Sipping on copious amounts of bone broth and catching up on some reading today in between periods of rest as I nurse a nasty case of sinusitis. Having spent the first half of this week in a work retreat focused on improving the health of people + planet through sustainable architecture, I’ve been encouraged and inspired today reading in @gbdmagazine about universities embracing @living_future Living Building Challenge and combing through my email to find @mindbodygreen identifying protection of the planet becoming integral to wellness routines as the #1 wellness trend to watch next next year.
-
Our bodies and buildings - and the environment both reside in - cannot and will not thrive unless all function as integrative, #regenerative systems. Interestingly, all perform best when most in sync with nature, which is more than consuming kale and building with bamboo.
-
It’s about inputs and outputs - altering light exposure to increase regenerative sleep, which in turn reduces stress, inflammation, hormone disruption and disease - returning the body’s rhythms to equilibrium; switching to clean energy sources while at the same time reducing overall energy consumption; designing with materials that don’t require manufacturing processes that dump carcinogenic and endocrine-disrupting chemicals into our groundwater; making cities more #walkable, benefitting the body on multiple levels and also reducing vehicle emissions; the list goes on.
-
I’ve barely scratched the surface of what I hope will dramatically change the way we live and do business in the immediate future. It requires a fundamental mindset change that includes recognition of the complex, interwoven #ecosystem we are a part of, and an intentional overhaul of the way we view consumption on all scales.

... I’m back to feeling tired instead of inspired, but I hope you’re a little the latter. Back to bed 🤧. xo

#tbt to last fall when I'd recently found out that I was pregnant.
.
The nausea was kicking in + hormonal acne studded my jawline/cheeks. Having recently gotten back from China + in catch-up mode w/ my existing #acusanctuary ladies, my practice was busy + blooming but there was little time for breaks; I had to power through. For the first time, I could truly empathize w/ my pregnant patients in a real-gosh-me-too-way. This was the year that pregnancy specifically bumped up in my practice + I'd taken on the highest number of fertility cases. Case in point: The Law of Attraction is alive + well.
.
I knew that w/ a busy schedule, I *had to* make room for self-care. I made it a requirement for myself (+ my baby.) Some things that were indispensable included: prayer, daily guided meditation, acupuncture, massage, yoga, pilates, light weights, lots of walks, nature emersion, teas (+later), supp nutrients (prenatal, vitamin D/K2, magnesium, omegas, probiotics, collagen), + healthy eating while tuning into my body's timely needs. In TCM, pregnancy is the peak of both yin (ultimate femininity) + yang (rapid transformation.) It's also a time when intuition peeks/molds--priming for the true vision manifested in motherhood.
.
Pregnancy was truly an incredible journey. I will never see my body the same + my appreciation for every cell/curve is magnified to infinitum. When asked in younger-year-activities "share: what are you grateful for?", I'd frequently say with a giggle, 'my uterus!' - now I can take that to a deeper level of appreciation. The female body is incredible. Through all phases our bodies are magical. We are connected to the moon. We have cycles + rhythms + flow beautifully. When we are out of sync, our bodies let us know. It's in our nature to tune in. Our world can numb this essential skill + fuzz our responses. We can't let that happen. I'll try to share more about this in incremental posts.
.
I can't leave this note w/o saying that if you're on the fertility route, hang in there, beautiful. You're incredible as the woman-you-are now. Optimizing fertility is parallel to being the healthiest + most vibrant version of yourself. That in itself is a gift.

Even though this entire article is interesting, it's the last paragraph that really got me!
It's great to see that scientists have examined the timing of giving immunisations and found that timing does have a significant impact; but, more importantly (to me, at least!!) a connection has been made to autoimmune issues and disruption of our circadian rhythms... I'd like to see this investigated further, so we can all perform at our best, whatever that may be ❤️

Many people still believe and give the advice that breastfed, or babies in general,  will sleep longer stretches if they are filled up on rice cereal or formula. This is simply #nottrue .In the newborn stage babies need to wake every couple or few hours to eat, be changed or want to be cuddled. It's not always out of hunger that they wake. Their circadian rhythm has not yet developed and their sleep is much lighter at this age causing them to wake more often.  This is for many reasons. In the newborn stage they instinctively wake to stay aliveand to keep your breast milk supply regulated and their little bellies full are just a couple of reasons why. After coming out of the newborn stage and around 4 months is when they will start sleeping in longer stretches if they are well rested. This is also when the 4 month sleep "regression" ( I like to call it developmental advancement) starts, their circadian rhythm emerges, and get are becoming more aware. Keeping them as well rested during this time (generally lasts about two weeks) and aiming for the daily recommended amount of sleep time will keep them from being overtired and when they emerge from this developmental advancement they will start sleeping in longer stretches.

DON’T EAT AFTER 6PM 🤨 Really? Let’s talk through this one for mythbusting advent calendar day 14.
.
Many living things have 24-hour cycles called circadian clocks 🕗, which encourage different activities at different times, for example plants 🌱photosynthesising during the day and nocturnal 🌚 animals hunting at night. We have light/dark cycles (so we feel sleepy at night 😴), feeding/fasting cycles, and others that govern physiological processes and hormone levels.
.
So should you eat after 6pm? Sure, if you want to! It’s not like at 6pm your body suddenly switches from metabolising food for energy to storing it as fat. It doesn’t work like that 🙅🏼.
.
This rule has become popular again recently thanks to the rising interest in intermittent fasting. There is definitely some research which suggests that this can be beneficial for some groups of people (notably males with diabetes). However, downsides include food anxiety and restrict-overeat cycles.
.
Also, you actually fast every night anyway, which for most people is the 8-12 hours between dinner and breakfast. So technically you’re kind of doing it on your own 🤷🏼‍♀️!
.
In the end, a rule is a rule, a diet is a diet. 🙄 What if you get home from work late one day? If you’re hungry you should eat, not obey some external rule that says you shouldn’t. Your feeding/fasting cycle is essentially ghrelin release ➡️ hunger ➡️ eat ➡️ insulin release ➡️ time ➡️ ghrelin release ➡️ hunger. And so on. Don’t override your hunger signals, you need to eat!
.
Conclusion: rely on internal rather than external cues where possible. 😊

MORNING WALKS | our morning walks are the SHT!⠀
⠀
I’ve been walking ever since I got into the Army.  I made a commitment, each and every day, to start the day with a walk, and to end the day with a walk.⠀
⠀
→ in the morning my walk is all about learning and envisioning.  I spend the majority of my walk listening to podcasts, and listening to at least 30min of a new audiobook.⠀
⠀
→ morning walks facilitate #selfsufficiency and fat-burning.  moving on an empty stomach FORCES the body to make it’s own energy.⠀
⠀
→ in the evening my walk is all about reflecting on the day, and envisioning a great day tomorrow.⠀
⠀
→ it certainly helps to have Conan, he gives me another reason to walk.⠀
⠀
regardless of what you do for fitness, walking, 2 times a day, is powerful BEYOND the physical component.  it can be YOUR time for learning, planning, envisioning and reflecting.  30min in the morning, 30min in the evening!⠀
⠀
do you walk?  what’s your favorite podcast or audiobook?  or would you like to learn more?⠀

Day 11 of #25daysofButi is #camelpose #ustrasana. Living in harmony with #circadianrhythm is amazing. Naturally up at 6:45am, coffee, cleaned house, practiced, journaled by 10am. Now to #laplaya. This heart-opening #backbend is one of my favorites. Energetically, it's a big pose, even if it doesn't look like it on the surface. #theresmorethanmeetstheeye #practicemakespractice #practicedaily #yoga365 #jungleyoga #junglelife #iambuti #butisattva #ButiYoga #butitribe

Help winter dry skin with a good before shower, daily Skin Brushing ritual.
Moving circulation and lymph drainage is imperative to healthy skin and yes, it does help with dryness too!
.
Cold weather and lack of sunshine brings on a natural “hibernation state” within our circadian flow. 
Our pores become blocked to keep out the cold and protect our internal body from heat loss, bringing on less circulation and drier than normal skin.
Body brushing is an excellent practice to use during these months to keep blood flowing and the lymphatic system healthy.
.
Whether you prefer wet or dry brushing, (I truly don’t think it matters) here are some tips that I hope you will find useful:
.
By following the lymph drainage route- always follow the path of moving your brush, loofa, hand mitts, etc towards your heart.
Skin brushing does not have to be hard on surface skin, but enough to move beyond muscle, like a massage.
Ayurvedic practice suggests dry brushing, then applying Sesame oil to help pull out toxins and then a warm shower.
I usually brush, shower and then apply oils- as your pores are much more receptive to product absorption after any type of exfoliation.
Cold showering or a cold blast at the end stimulates our circulatory and lymphatic system even further- so feel free!
Happy Brushing!

Don’t get me wrong – in the midst of so much change I’ve been very grateful to have been able to keep my job and work remotely out west – but waking up to a nearly pitch black sky and working for several hours before the sun even rises has been more difficult for this night owl than anticipated (lots of respect for shift workers, btw). I’m just going to sit in front of my sun lamp now (shoutout to @rooshay for the recommendation, and appeal to @alexandrapoterack to design more aesthetically pleasing sun lamps)... 🌃 #workingremotely #undercoverofdarkness #darkness #night #nighttime #nightowl #adjusting #adjustmentperiod #gettingusedtoit #circadianrhythm #whatcircadianrhythm? #outofsync #sunlamp #lightbox #sunbox #happylamp #brightlighttherapy #lighttherapy #phototherapy #eyesore #shesonlyhappyinthesun #willamette #willametteriver #portland #pdx #oregon

Frustrated by lack or quality of sleep? Have you delved into sleep hygiene? And no I’m not talking a shower before bed, but an epsom salt bath may be in order.
.

How much blue light do you get each night? That will effect your circadian rhythm. There’s so much that can disrupt sleep and sleep issues are hitting more and more people these days that it’s almost become an epidemic! sleeping pills is not  the fix it and they can in fact exacerbate the issue. —
—
—
Try eliminating blue light an hour before you plan to go to bed.
—
Get black out curtains as light even through your closed eyelids effects circadian rhythm.
—
Remove all electronics (phones, tv’s and any tablets etc that emit light)from bedroom.
—-
Sleep in a cool room —-
Try magnesium before bed or epsom salt(full of mag)
—-
Watch caffeine intake after the morning —-
Alcohol can also adversely effect sleep. You may fall asleep quickly but the quality might be poor. It gets your heart rate up, raises body temp and dehydrates you.
—-
Try meditation at night to calm your CNS(central nervous system) if you can’t quiet your mind. —-
Daily exercise can help sleep quality as well but often has opposite effect when exercising at night because exercise raises cortisol levels and you want those higher in the morning and low at night.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, such a big topic but it’s worthy of discussion. Currently I no longer leave my phone on my bedside table.(15 feet away is recommended distance) —-
Wanna share tricks or struggles? I want to open this up for honest discussion and communication because I know so many that suffer from sleep issues and just because I don’t it doesn’t mean that I don’t have valuable information or tools to share. #sleephygiene #circadianrhythm #sleepiscrucial #ilovesleep #rested #darkness #sleepwell

What are the most common nightmares? None of us probably enjoy thinking about our most frightening upsetting dreams. But the truth is, we’re dreaming about a lot of similar things. The top 3 themes were physical aggression, interpersonal conflicts and experiences of failure and helplessness.

#Research Update - How the body clock and time of day may influence autoimmune conditions. Maintaining a good body clock is generally believed to lead to good health for humans, and disrupting the circadian rhythm (for example, working night shifts) has been associated with immune diseases such as MS. This new study suggest that our immune system is programmed to respond better to infection and insults encountered at different times in the 24-hour clock.

Cocooning and thinking about hibernation . . 💭
In wintertime humans naturally tend to sleep longer due to the reduction in daylight, which influences people’s internal circadian clocks. I’m feeling a little less vital during winter. So why not listen to your body and try to accomodate the need for extra sleep?
·٠🍃٠·
On the other side the body benefits from movement. So as cold as it gets this winter, I vow to myself that I will get outside as much as possible because I know it will energize me. Cold circumstances challenge your body even more. :)
·٠💛٠·
Escaping winter by hibernating isn’t an option for me because I appreciate winter magic.
In contrast, scientists envison human hibernating to endure long spaceflights like the six months trek to Mars.

I hope your next slumber will be  R E🌜R E A T I V E  and peaceful. 💋

Although women can and do suffer from heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases, they do so at a lower rate and often at a later age than men. 
Many scientists have hypothesized that estrogen plays a protective role in delicate heart tissues. 
New research supports this, finding that estrogen protects the heart from the damaging effects of circadian disruption. http://bit.ly/estrogen-circadian-rhythm (link in bio)

Early morning light...even when it's cold out. Especially when it's cold out. This little addition to my #morningroutine has been a Godsend. A few of my clients and even my Mom, who's a throat cancer survivor, are noticing the benefits! Grab 20 when you can. Skin exposed, no glasses, bare feet. Within the first hour after #sunrise is the most beneficial. Too much blue light and not enough #sunlight could be could be taking a toll. Let's talk about it. |IT'S YOUR LIFE. TRAIN FOR IT!| .
