Why we should go to bed and wake up at the same time

It all comes from the notion of circadian rhythm, which is simply your 24-hour rhythm. If we make it change constantly, by waking up at a different hour everyday of most of the days, it will not be able for our body to regulate our energy-levels.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
