What Your Daily Routine Should Look Like

What your daily routine should look like to keep great health, achieve the best results from your activities and just take pleasure in life.

Most people have a more or less permanent daily routine. A person works, rests, takes food at about the same hours. The body gets used to this routine, and as a result, things require less effort, and the forces expended during the labor activity are quickly and completely restored.

Most people within a day have wavy changes in working capacity with two peaks of its increase – from 8 to 13 hours and from 16 to 19 hours. There should be a certain time for work and rest in the mode of the day.

Morning hours

It is advisable to have breakfast from 6 to 8 in the morning.

It is known that the time from 6 to 10 am is characterized by good memorization. If you need to remember certain information – it is better to learn it in the morning. The mechanical memory is activated from 5 to 7. Logical memorization is active from 7 to 8 am, and associative memory works best from 8 to 10 am. Capacity for work is activated from 10 am. It is the most favorable period of time for the deployment of your main activity, which lasts until 6 pm.


It is better to take a break for lunch from 11 to 13 hours. Eat slowly, with pleasure, even if it is simple food. Try to think about food while eating, realizing its taste and aroma, not distracted by thoughts. A lunch meal should begin with a small amount of the drink. It can be fresh vegetable juice, herbal tea or just water. It’s better not to drink for an hour after lunch.

If you have intense mental activity, then you can also eat a small amount of sweet dessert after dinner.

Evening hours

You work until 6 pm and physical and mental activity decreases after 6 pm. So activities should be aimed at pacification at this time.
You can gradually curtail your activity and prepare for sleep from 18 to 22 hours. It is desirable to analyze the past day in the evening.

Sleep is also very important. The phase of deep sleep occurs and the internal forces of the organism are restored from 10 to 12 o’clock.

The brain is already starting to work, and we see dreams from 12 to 2 o’clock in the morning.

The greatest relaxation of the body is from 2 to 4 am.

Everything has its time – biorhythms of the human body

Morning hours from 6 to 12

6.00 – the best time to wake up and get out of bed, take a shower. The metabolism is accelerated, energy is accumulated.

7.00 – it’s time for breakfast. Morning carbohydrates are completely processed into energy and sweets will not add extra pounds.

8.00 – the maximum amount of hormones is produced. The threshold of pain sensitivity increases. Therefore, there is an exacerbation of various ailments.

9.00 – a peak of activity of short-term memory.

10.00 – the blood circulation is accelerating, and the brain is better supplied with blood, and all that is heard and seen is most easily remembered. Therefore, it is time to create from 10 to 12.

11.00 – beginning a stress-resistant period. It’s time to settle conflicts.

Daytime from 12 to 16

12.00 – it’s time to rest. The acidity of the stomach increases, followed by the feeling of hunger. The mental activity decreases, because the blood flows to the stomach.

13.00 – lunchtime.

14.00 – the brain rested and is ready for long-term memorization. The feeling of pain is dulled, so schedule a visit to the dentist at this time.

15.00 – the blood circulation is accelerated, arterial pressure rises. Ability to work is increasing.

Evening from 16 to 23

16.00 – you get a second wind. Work, study, go in for sports.

17.00 – senses become heightened. You can speak to a boss about a new project.

18.00 – work of the liver and pancreas is activated. The liver most effectively utilizes alcohol.

19.00 – blood pressure and pulse are falling. Therefore, it is desirable to abandon the drugs that reduce blood pressure at this time.

20.00 – body temperature and blood pressure decrease, metabolism slows down, drugs are better absorbed.

21.00 – the body is preparing for bed. Do not overload the stomach.

22.00 – it’s time to go to bed. If you decide to have fun with friends at a disco, then avoid drinking alcohol. An extra cocktail will turn into a morning headache.

Nighttime from 23 to 6

23.00 – this is the worst time for mental work.

24.00 – if you still can not sleep, it’s time to create. By the way, hormones that regulate birth pains are especially active at this time. The minimum of working capacity and quality of work (the greatest number of errors) is noted at 2-4 o’clock in the morning.

Of course, this is a generalized scheme, but it allows you to understand what functions of the body are included at one time or another, which hormones are active and which are not. Try to plan your day approximately with these instructions and you will feel an improvement in the general condition, the results of work and study, and so on.
