Your Friendly Hise Hikers Tip: Allow Your Body To Do What It Needs To Do.
The landscape photo was taken around midnight on Friday, June 9th. The screenshot of the weather and sunset time indication of 12:05 am on the left for reference.
Upon returning from our trip to Alaska, we both noticed our “timing” felt off. With everything.
From when we eat to when we go to bed, how long we slept, etc.
You see, over the close to 2 weeks we were in Alaska, we traveled further north up the state… which meant longer daylight hours. Which, sure, is cool to experience. And also disorienting, if I’m totally honest.
Going to bed at 10 pm and it being completely light out felt weird.
Getting up to use the restroom in the middle of the night (say 2 or 3 am) and there is still a hint of daylight or twilight out felt weird.
We both have noticed that our bodies seemed to need a lot of rest and sleep upon our return home and now, about a week post-adventure, we are starting to feel back in alignment with our circadian rhythms.
We have both given ourselves grace and mercy as we reintegrate back into things with respect to our workouts, our work, social activities, etc.
