1. Head outside and sit in the daylight for 10 minutes.
Better still, have your lunch outside, and divide your break between eating and a walk. Here's why: Your office probably has about 500 luxes of light, which is equal to about 500 candles. That compares with 10,000 luxes at sunrise and 100,000 at noon on a July day. So when the afternoon doldrums hit, go outside and sit in the sunlight. It will help reset your chronological clock, kick down the amount of melatonin (the sleep hormone) your body produces during this circadian dip, and give you a valuable boost of beneficial vitamin D, reducing your risk of osteoporosis as well as various cancers.

这里是比喻的说法,实际上.,,chronological clock是不能调整的。只是说通过某个方法让某人减少衰老速度,或者焕发青春地方式来让人似乎好像就是调整了chronological clock

So how old are you, really?

"We age on two clocks," notes Dr. Robert Palmer in Age Well! "Our chronological clock tells us how old we are in months, days and years. Our biological clock . . . indicates the wear and tear that has taken place . . . on systems and organs to determine what physical 'age' our body actually is."

人的老化是可以减慢的,即让人看上去年轻。(推迟生物钟(biological clock)就好像是重新设定实际的年龄)

比如:一个人的实际年龄为40岁,那么reset chronological clock的含义是指让自己的体能保持在35岁或者更加地年轻。

Technically, the chronological clock represents the natural progression of time, and people can do nothing to affect it.  However, it is sometimes used, incorrectly I think, to mean how one's body appears to age.

Example of confusing usage:

Can we turn back the clock? Is it possible to look and feel younger than our chronological age? ... Roizen is not alone in believing that you can turn back your chronological clock.

Examples of correct usage:

While no one can stop the chronological clock, natural remedies can dramatically slow down your biological one.

While we must adhere to the ticking of the same chronological clock, in large measure we have the freedom to set our own biological clock--the one that determines our functional age and dictates the way we look and feel.

Also the example in #5.
