What will TT's true time be for you?

Is TrueTyme eye-catching, ice-breaking mind-body "math-art"? Or is it a FitBit-enhancing "timewhole", one especially created for the natural-high minded? Either way, TrueTyme's localized sun & moon time (and mood) tracking -- and especially under worst case conditions, is full of colorful feature-rich surprises.

While TrueTyme can be useful to folks recovering in Intensive Care Units, or even in solitary confinement in prisons, our typical user is someone who works in a windowless job environment. Or just all day indoors. So if you do, you may want to know that working without a window nearby is now known to be a factor in all kinds of circadian rhythm problems. Things like infertility, obesity, depression. If so, try working near a window, one where you get to see the sun's journey in the sky during the day as best you can, the way farm workers do. But if you can't -- and most of us cannot, you can always consider trying out something like one of these...

1) You can seek to keep track of where you are in the day by using Time.is. It is described as the world's most accurate web-based digital clock. Of course, sooner or later you still might suffer, but at least you will always be exactly on time.

OR

2) You can use a very lovely wall clock called The Present, which does NOT show you where you are in the day NOR the night, NOR even where you are in the week NOR the month. But it does show you where you are in the year. So you still might not avoid one or more circadian rhythm-related problems, but at least you can show your colleagues a unique calendar elegantly described and marketed as a clock, one that is much endorsed by MOMA.

OR...

3) You can try TrueTyme for a while.

TT's potential benefits beyond enhanced feelings of well-being are not yet scientifically proven, but those are intriguing possibilities. One day if there is enough of a push from sufferers of circadian rhythm related ills, perhaps chronobiology scientists will do true time research. For now though, some TT users here and there are giving us details of their own color-coded MoodTyme mood journaling & analysis results and/or other other feedback. E.g., here is what avant garde artist and TrueTyme power-user, Alison Pilorz, told us about her own experiences using several of TrueTyme's features...



You can jump into a purchase of TrueTyme Full Features Forever here. But to better orient yourself so you can get more from its true time displays of sun and moon time, and other features like circadian and circalunar meditation, plus MoodTyme tracking and analysis of your moods, etc., we suggest you first take advantage of our free one week trial -- at the end of which you get to freely keep 1st level features.

Furthermore, if you prefer to know more details about TT before living with true time for a week, here from the Better Tymes Project, developer of TrueTyme, is a TTymely FAQ about our "moving forwards by moving back in time" smart clock app for Android phones, tablets and smartwatches. (And, hopefully one day soon, also for Apple and WEAR platforms -- as soon as we can find the right volunteers.)

True Times For Better Times

 

Social Jet Lag — PART I

According to reports on National Public Radio and elsewhere, a new study has shown that “Social Jet Lag” can cause obesity.

Our body’s internal daily clocks are closely linked to the passing of local sunlight hours.

 

Social Jet Lag — PART II

Another cause of “Social Jet Lag” revealed by Cordis/EUCLOCK Chronobiologists

Our eyes have special “rod & cone”-like photo-receptors to keep track of time of sunrise during dawn and time of sunset during dusk.

 

Social Jet Lag — PART III

According to a recent article in Scientific American, a new chronobiology study has determined that disrupted circadian rhythms can cause women to become infertile.

A man is connected with the sun — but a woman, much more so. And then there is the moon…

 

Circadian Rhythms and Menstrual Cycles

Circadian rhythms, sleep, and the menstrual cycle.

A woman’s menstrual cycles have a circadian rhythm superimposed on them. in turn, her circadian rhythm affects her menstrual cycle.

. . . .

Disruption of circadian rhythms is associated with disturbances in menstrual function. A female shiftworker is more likely to report menstrual irregularity and longer menstrual cycles than a female non-shiftworker. There is now more & more evidence that circadian disruption increases a woman’s risk of breast cancer.

 

Autism Sufferers’ Impaired Senses of Time

Time perception problems may explain autism symptoms

Individuals with autism have trouble perceiving the passage of time, including daytime & nighttime, and the pairing of sights and sounds happening simultaneously, according to two new studies.

Alz & Sundown Syndrome, Parkinson’s and many other ills are also connected with disrupted circadian rhythms–even “senior moments”. Send us your discoveries!!!

Observations on Astro-logical Time

Selected observations, including one by Thomas Moore, best-selling author of Care Of The Soul

“… we could become aware of our personal seasons and tempos by noticing the blossomings and fadings of nature, by noticing the special rhythms of the moon, or by contemplating the many implications of sunrise and sunset.”

 

Linnaeus’ Discovery of Flower Time

Linnaeus and the Flower Clock

Linnaeus observed over a number of years that certain plants constantly opened and closed their flowers at particular times of the day, these times varying from species to species. Hence one could deduce the approximate time of day according to which species had opened or closed their flowers.

One Response so far.

    Here is more about the nature of chronobiology by one of its leading pioneer explorers… http://www.glimmerveen.nl/le/biological_clock.html . And if you love fractals, and especially with regards to how they are found in all living creatures, you will also enjoy Dr. Glimmerveen’s magificent http://glimmerveen.nl/le/chaos.html . (Btw, Parkinson’s, epilepsy and depression are just three of many ills now known to be associated with disrupted circadian rhythms).
