The Mirror comprised this list of best time of the day to do common activities. Let’s investigate how you should schedule your day to optimize your activities.
While most people say they can’t function until they have their morning coffee, you’re not taking advantage of the stimulant properly. If you drink coffee first thing in the morning, you’re unlikely to feel it’s benefits when you need it most.
Our internal clock is controlled when a hormone called cortisol is released and which us feel alert and awake. Our cortisol levels are at their peak from 8 a.m. until 9 a.m. and drinking coffee at that time stunts the effects of coffee and can result in a higher tolerance of caffeine.
Steven Miller, a neuroscientist in Bethesda, Maryland, states that the best time to indulge in coffee is actually between 9:30 – 11:30 a.m., after that cortisol peak.
MAKING A BIG DECISION
Apparently exactly at 11:59 a.m. (And not a minute sooner or later) is the absolute best time to make an important decision so says this study. The morning rush is over and you aren’t starving for lunch yet (I start craving lunch at 9:53 a.m. so fuck that noise). This “scientific” study was done by the British ticket website thetrainline.com, so take that as you may.
However another study claims that the best time to make a decision is any time when your bladder is full. Sounds like urine trouble to wait until then which could piss people off.
Conversely, the worst time to make a life-changing decision is 10 p.m. when your brain is drained after a long day.
GO ON A DATE
Research shows that you are the most happy, relaxed and sociable at 7 p.m., making it a perfect time to go out on a date.
BONUS: Your liver will be working at optimal level from 7-8 p.m. so you can process the alcohol most effectively.
BONUS BONUS: You’re very awake at this time so alcohol will not make you sleepy.
While most guys aren’t going to be Picky Peters at what time they have sex, there is actually an optimal time. Science says that 8 a.m. is the best time to have sex.
A person’s energy and hormone levels are at their peak. Morning sex is preferred specially for men because that’s when testosterone levels are the highest, leading to sexual feelings.
This isn’t necessarily scientific research but, two words, “Morning Wood.”
Researchers from the University of Southern California and Yahoo Labs analyzed 16 billion messages, the largest ever study of email communications.
They found that messages sent in the morning get much longer replies. And emails delivered in the afternoon receive much shorter responses due to people being worn out and tired. I’m totally sending every email at 3:57 p.m. from now on so I don’t get a reply that’s a fucking book.
Your lungs are nearly 20 percent more powerful at 5 p.m. than at 12 p.m., says Dr. Boris Medarov, an assistant professor of medicine at Albany Medical College in New York.
At this time your blood vessels are most dilated and your body temperature is highest. Muscle strength tends to be at its highest between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. so that’s the best time to hit the gym hard.
If you said, “After sex,” was the best time for a cigarette you would be wrong. But if you’re going to engage in the nasty little habit, researchers at The Pennsylvania State University discovered that those who puffed on a cigarette when they first woke up had higher levels of NNAL, a substance produced when the tobacco-specific carcinogen NNK enters the body.
FINDING A JOB
A few days ago we informed you on the best days to find a job. In the article we suggested that you apply for jobs on Tuesdays around noon.
I just helped you optimize your activities, now go put that plan into effect and get the most out of your day.
