Many people believe that only energy or weight loss that can fluctuate during the day. Whereas the human brain also has its own rhythm and there are times when its best. Whenever a brilliant time to perform a particular activity?
As quoted from Health.MSN, Monday (04/10/2010) there are 8 specific time in which someone can be brilliant in performing its duties, there are:
7 to 9 am: The best time to enhance the spirit and passion
” That time is the perfect time to increase ties with a new pair when you wake up,” said Elijah Karatsoreos, PhD, a neurologist from Rockefeller University.
This is because levels of the oxytocin hormone (the hormone of love) are at the highest level after waking. This time is the time to strengthen relationships with people who are most important in life. British researchers said that the level of oxytocin in males will gradually decline over time.
9 am to 11 noon: The best time for creativity
At that time the brain has the sufficient cortisol hormone (stress hormone), so it can help focus the mind and this is not influenced by age.
This time is an excellent time to learn and work on tasks that require analysis and concentration. Because it’s a time to develop new ideas, make presentations or brainstorming.
11 to 2 pm: The best time to perform a difficult task
German investigators said that at this time the melatonin hormone (sleep hormone) has declined sharply, so that the body is more ready to work on a project or a difficult and hard work.
But you should still do not perform several tasks simultaneously, because it will make someone lose concentration. Because it’s a time to make presentations or perform other heavy tasks.
2 to 3 pm: The best time to rest
For digest the lunch, the body will draw a blood from the brain to the abdomen, this condition will make the intake of blood or oxygen to the brain is a little less, so it make someone feel sleepy. For that, try to take a break from work.
If you still have to work and fight a sleepy, try to walk for a while, meditating or drinking water. This could increase vascular volume and circulation so that increases blood flow to the brain.
3 to 6 pm: The best time for collaboration
“At the present time the brain will feel very tired,” said Paul Nussbaum, PhD, a clinical neuropsychologist. So, it does not hurt to do the collaboration with co-workers or doing the different activities. Although the brain is not as sharp as the previous time, but someone will feel more relaxed and the pressure of his body were also lower.
6 to 8 pm: The best time to perform personal tasks
Among these hours, researchers found that the brain has entered in ’maintenance’ phase, ie when melatonin production is still at low levels.
Nothing wrong to walk alone or with friends, making dinner or enjoy quality time with family members.
8 to 10 nights: The best time to relax
At this time there is a transition from a sleepy to awake conditions, because melatonin hormone levels will rise rapidly. While the levels of serotonin (a neurotransmitter associated with the spirit) will fade.
Rubin Naiman, PhD, sleep problems specialist from the University of Arizona’s Centerfor Integrative Medicine, said that about 80 percent of serotonin will be stimulated from exposure to sunlight, so if the sun sinks, the body’s levels are also reduced.
“At night when the brain is tired, is the best way to make the body become relaxed like watching funny movies, knitting or doing things that can make the body relaxed,” says Naiman.
10 pm to the top: The best time to sleep and suspend all activities
This time is the time for a break tonight and sleep, light settings can help to let the brain rest. After several hours, the brain will be ready again to start a new activity.
Try to get enough sleep as much as 7-8 hours, so that it can obtain optimal health and energy in the morning.
