Tired of Feeling Tired?

Every wonder why you're tired all the time and what if anything can you do about it? Before we can do anything about it we must first understand why we are tired and how it affects us.

Our bodies have up-and-down daily cycles called diurnal body timing patterns. Recent research reveals that these body timing patterns play a bigger role than ever assumed in how we think and feel throughout the day (1).

It's more than lifestyle that has us slowing down.

As pilots, we often dismiss how we feel and accept it as part of the job. It is not uncommon to face long days, in different time zones and exposing our bodies to thinner air. But these feeling often have nothing to do with the pilot lifestyle. Everyday our bodies go through a timing-cycle where we move from feel-good highs to mentally-fuzzy lows. Researchers call these highs and lows our Twin Peaks of Mood. After the early morning peak, we drift down to a low mental valley. By mid-afternoon we bottom out, and will struggle with decision making, clear thinking and having a positive attitude towards others(2).

In “The Valley”, we may not be very nice.

If you have ever noticed being more sharp, and not as friendly to others in the late afternoon, you are not alone. Research done on working professionals in over 2,100 companies showed that we are more negative, irritable and combative during this time. (7) 

Your brain is working more poorly than it may seem.

Studies looking at mental performance during cycle low-points show that our mental and emotional abilities are far more impaired than ever assumed.

Research, conducted at the University of Oxford, shows that our performance change from peaks to valley points can be equivalent to drinking the legal limit of alcohol(5).  

Critical Thinking Set Back

Research from Harvard showed academic performance dropped by the equivalent of missing two weeks of school a year when testing in the Valley(4).

Mistakes 4X More Likely 

Findings from Duke show that hospital workers are 4x more likely to make a mistake during the afternoon trough(5).

Negative Feelings

Research from Cornell looking at half a billion tweets shows that people worldwide are more pessimistic and cynical during the low mental valley(6).
