Circadian Rhythms are a 24 hour repeating cycle our body experiences each day. Dr. Franz Halberg coined the term Circadian Rhythm in the 1950’s as a result of his studies of hormones. In addition to our daily Circadian Rhythm we have a multitude of internal clocks regulating our sleep, metabolism, and our ability to stay focused and alert. They help get us going in the morning, slow us down at night and regulate a myriad of cellular processes occurring right now in our bodies. Knowing your body’s rhythms can help you improve your sleep, increase energy, and be more productive.

This daily cycle is divided into an awake and a sleep period, each of which are comprised of shorter cycles called Ultradian Rhythms. While most people are aware of the cycles we experience when sleeping of dreaming and deep sleep, few are aware of our Ultradian cycles occurring while we’re awake. Our bodies need both highs and lows during sleep and when awake. Yet we’ve all experienced a mid-morning slump when we need a pick-me-up or the slump after lunch. These are evidences of our waking period Ultradian Rhythms. Knowing when your body’s next peak productive or low resting periods may occur can give you an edge.

UltraClock displays these cycles in a circular clock-like fashion by folding the waveforms onto themselves creating a circle. The circle can then be unfolded and interpreted as a wave as can be seen in the example below.

Another example of a wave being related to a 24 hour cycle is the 24 hour view of Earth from space showing the moving light-dark cycles as shown below.

We suggest getting familiar with UltraClock by running it in Test Mode to see it operate at 60 times faster speed and changing the awake time to see how you could change when your daily highs and lows may occur. As an example, if your manager has 9AM staff meetings, perhaps you should get up at 6AM to be at peak performance during the meetings. Using this information will allow you schedule your mealtimes, exercise and workout periods and critical work tasks. Couples can use shared rhythm information to improve their time together.

Always remember that no two people are alike and the timing used in UltraClock is based on standard Ultradian Rhythms, so use the information gained to start understanding your body’s internal clocks and start winning.
