"According to researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder, a week in the bush can help reset your internal clock..."
"After exposure to natural light, melatonin levels began to move to 'daylight time' about 50 minutes before waking.
Wright says this means in the modern world our biological night extends past our wake time and explains why many of us are so sleepy in the morning.
He believes the changes in the internal clock are directly linked to exposure to sunlight: during their normal life the study participants were exposed to four times less sunlight than while camping.
'By increasing our exposure to sunlight and reducing our exposure to electrical lighting at night, we can turn our internal clock and sleep times back, and likely make it easier to awaken and be alert in the morning,' he says.
Previous research has highlighted the importance of good sleep with late bed times linked to unwanted waking, obesity and even cardiac problems and increased cancer risk."
