Well… the past few weeks I seem to have a wave of energy in the evening when I’d normally be heading to bed. Insomnia? Or like a baby who has its sleep cycle reversed? Universe, help! Seriously, what is going on? Then I heard, “Jet lag.”
I’d had jet lag once before so this did resonating with me. I decided to googled and read: Jet lag can occur when people travel rapidly from east to west, or west to east on a plane. It is a physiological condition which upsets our body’s circadian rhythms.
Okay, so then I had to google circadian and read: Circadian rhythms are physical, mental and behavioral changes that follow a roughly 24-hour cycle, responding primarily to light and darkness in an organism’s environment. Ahh…
I was now chuckling. I know a lot of changes are happening inside of me. I know to honor them and do the best I can. I know I’ve been jumping, “time zones”. And the past few weeks, when I sleep I’ve been having so many dreams, I’ve pretty much stopped keeping track; a lot of astro travel. I also know that my body is taking in more light.
The other interesting thing I saw on google was jet lag happens more for those who are 40-60. Hmm… us wave/generation x’ers?
And, when you ask google what is the course of treatment… I was seeing the symbolism or… irony. “Light therapy.”
I seem to know that this jet lag shall pass. We are just getting use to a new place. Be kind to yourself!
