The circadian rhythm is the biological clock of the body. This cycle involves two vital hormones called melatonin and cortisol.
The cortisol hormone is normally high in the morning, which assists you to wake up, feel alert, and get ready to take on your day. On the other hand, melatonin peaks at the end of the day when you require resting.
What happens when these hormones are unstable? You will feel tired throughout the day and active at night when you are supposed to sleep.
Failure to stick to this rhythm can lead to weight gain, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other conditions. The rhythm is disrupted by the blue light produced by screens of computers and mobile devices.
The melatonin hormone is suppressed by this blue light, the same way it is suppressed by light during the day. Hence you will find trouble getting some sleep.
Hence mobile devices and computers should be kept away during the night to make it easy to get sleep. You can even spend time in nature or wear blue-light-blocking glasses if you have to use these devices.

The market for plant-based meat is booming and revenue has increased by 23 percent in 2018. On the other hand, plant-based dairy makes 13 percent of all milk revenue.
Companies are now offering plant-based alternatives to canned and raw tuna. For instance, Good Catch is a company that is already offering shelf-stable tuna fish that is created from beans and consists of up to 15 grams of proteins per serving.
The rise of this industry is attributed to the overexploitation of marine fish stocks as well as the negative impacts of ocean fishing. The product is also ideal for health-conscious vegans and vegetarians.
The regenerative movement involves supporting initiatives that do more good and less harm. When farmers grow through the use of regenerative methods, they take back nutrients to the soil that can assist in absorbing carbon dioxide from the air.
