Recently I've been waking up around 3:30am every morning, and I wanted to know why.

We all have this internal clock, but what does it tell us?

According to AOL there's a theory that waking up at a certain time of night is your body tell you that there is something going inside.

So this got me thinking, oh no is there something wrong with me? If you find yourself waking up and around the same time each night, the theory is that your body is giving off a signal about a specific organ. So let's break down this internal clack and see what's wrong with me.

Here is the Nighttime Internal Clock breakdown:

  • 9pm - 11pm: Thyroid
  • 11pm - 1am: Gall Bladder
  • 1am - 3am: Liver
  • 3am - 5am: Lungs
  • 5am - 7am: Large Intestine

O.K., so according to this me waking up at 3:30 means that there is something wrong with my lungs? Not so much, Traditional Chinese medicine  links the lungs with emotion. The sense of loss or sadness. Great so now I can't breathe and I am depressed.

Take this for what it's worth, is this 100% accurate, probably not.
