  • Women's circadian cycles ar emuch shorter than mens by 6 minutes. Over time these minutes can add up and have a great impact on energy levels during the day and sleep during the night.
  • Women have internal clocks proven to run a full cycle in less than a day

  • Women are more suseptible to sleep disorders and health risks linked to sleep deprivation.
    • This is mostly because hormonal shifts, such as: menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause are linked to more disruptions during sleep.
