Did you know that certain parts of the day are more ideal for certain tasks than others? This fact is what has guided the development of various online education facilities, whose systems can determine the optimal time of day for each subject to be studied.
Clearly time is scarce, so it makes sense that we would want to get the best out of each moment. To help you work out how you can get the most out of your time we’ve researched and chosen our top five actions and when you should undertake them.
- The best time to take vitamins
Before breakfast? After supper? Whenever you remember? When exactly is the best time to take your supplements? According to the experts, the best time to take your vitamins is in the morning as this is the time when your body needs extra nutrients the most. Make sure that you wait half an hour or so after eating breakfast before taking your pills as nutrients are better absorbed on a full stomach.
- The best time to eat
In order to maintain a healthy weight, whether it’s by losing or gaining a few kilos, it is crucial to consistently eat your meals at the same time every day. A survey was done to establish what the ideal eating times are. According to the results, 7:11 is best for eating breakfast; 12:38 for lunch and 18:14 for dinner, the participants unanimously agreed that eating after 19:00 can be detrimental to your weight loss.
- The best time to nap
Naps help restore alertness, prevent burnout, heighten sensory perception, reduce the risk of heart disease, and make you more productive. Just ask famous nappers, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Edison, or John D. Rockefeller. So if you want to benefit from 40 winks, the best time to do so is between 14:00 and 15:00. It’s important, though, to keep these naps between 10 and 30 minutes long.
- The best time to clean the house
This may seem like an odd inclusion, but this chore can be a source of great frustration to many of us. We’ve included it because domestic responsibilities have a large impact on the balance of our lives. According to time management experts, it’s best for us to attend to these duties in the late afternoon, at about 16:00. Apparently this is the time when hand-eye-coordination is at its best and when many of us are in a good mood.
- The best time to study
Everyone’s mind works differently. While one person is easily able to understand the nuances of calculus, another might more easily comprehend Shakespeare. One thing is consistent, though, the best time to study is when you are most alert and when there will be the least distractions. This time should be used consistently for studying.
