Although many people time their lives by the clocks on their walls, the truth is that your body regulates your habits through a natural cycle tied to the sun and moon. These cycles determine periods of wakefulness and fatigue.
This video explains that circadian rhythms determine patterns of brain function, including 90-minute cycles of REM sleep during which your body is resting but your mind is active.
