The 5:50am Challenge

Wake up with KOA!


We’re all told that the amount of sleep we get has an impact on our wellbeing, health, and how tired we feel throughout the day. However research shows that the time we get up is infinitely more impactful on your health and alertness levels.


But Why is this? You can thank your Circadian Rhythm for that. Your Circadian Rhythm is your natural internal system that is hardwired to respond to certain times of the day with feelings of wakefulness or tiredness. Find out more about how The Circadian Rhythm works and why you should pay attention to it below
