NOT QUITE READY FOR YOUR PRIME TIME

Everyone has the best time to think or do mental activities, the best time to do physical activities, and the best time to sleep. Do you know what your best or Prime Time is?

In order to make the most of your daily schedule, you need to know when you are at your best, when your energy levels are high, when you are not at your best, and when your energy levels are low.

For many people, the prime time in the day is shortly after waking. So, if you wake at 7 a.m., your best time will probably be between 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Your least productive time will be around noon, there might be a "bump" of energy in mid-afternoon, and a low around the end of the typical working day (5 p.m.).

Of course, there are people who work shifts, who wake much earlier, or who like to sleep much later. However, the cycle will probably still be similar with the same fluctuations appearing throughout the day based upon the start time for each individual.

Chart your cycle by paying attention to your best, worst, and average times throughout several days. Use the following chart:

Time of Day 8:00 A.M.(Waking up) 12:00 P.M.(Lunch) 5:00 P.M.(Dinner)
