Webinar Series: The World Has Changed
Webinar Topic: Body Clocks And The Importance Of Timing
Webinar Date: 4th June 2020
Do you know the feeling of being jet-lagged? That groggy, heavy, slightly sick feeling that might be accompanied by a headache and a bad mood. That is the feeling of your circadian system being disrupted. Our bodies are filled with clocks that have a 24-hour (circadian) rhythm and change how our bodies function across the day. You may not change timezones everyday, but eating and sleeping at the wrong time of day leads to chronic circadian disruption. We all know that to lead a healthy life we need to eat good food (and not too much), get enough sleep, and exercise. Research has now shown that WHEN you eat, sleep, and move also plays a critical role in health.
Join this session to understand the science of circadian rhythms and the best time to eat, sleep, and exercise so you can optimize metabolism, heart health, and sleep.
Emily Manoogian, Ph.D. is a postdoctoral researcher at the Salk Institute who studies the intricate interaction between our body’s biological rhythms and the timing of our daily habits. These internal rhythms interact with our daily behaviors of when and how much we sleep, eat, and exercise. As the head of human research in Dr. Satchin Panda’s lab at Salk, Emily investigates how the timing of these behaviors relate to health. Recently, her research has focused on changing when we eat (time-restricted eating), without overtly changing diet or exercise can have widespread impacts on human health.
