There’s a time for everything – For Real, it’s science.

Everrryyyooonneee has heard the saying “There’s a time and place for everything.” Usually it’s a saying pulled out when someone is being inappropriate, or obnoxious or impatient – but apparently there really IS a time for everything!

I’ve shared some of my favorites from a post I found on BlueSuitMom.com.

Pain Tolerance Peaks: 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.
Research at the National Institute of Mental Health found that people are significantly less sensitive to induced pain in the morning than in the afternoon. No one is sure why this is, but a circadian effect on the release of endorphins may play a role, researchers speculate.

Ideal Time For: Dental appointments or minor medical procedures, like having a mole removed.

Um – I feel like the LAST thing I want to do when I first wake up is deal with Pain? But maybe that’s why it doesn’t hurt so much when I’m stumbling my way to the Bathroom in the morning and bang my limbs into every piece of furniture on the way. Hmm, I wonder if “David visits the Dentist” in the morning?

Mind Is Sharpest: 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Mental acuity “tends to rise in the morning, then it dips again at midday before rising again between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m.,” says Smolensky, who is also an adjunct professor of biomedical engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. Brain functions that are affected include reasoning skills, short-term memory, complex decision-making skills and alertness. That explains why firefighters tend to have their fastest response rates during the mid-to-late morning and between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., according to a recent study from France.

Ideal Time For: Demanding mental tasks, analyzing information, brainstorming and preparing for an afternoon meeting or test.

Time to Take It Easy: 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
It’s often called the post-lunch dip. At midday, alertness declines and people tend to get sleepy, whether or not they eat lunch. In addition, daydreaming is most frequent around 2 p.m., according to research at the National Institute on Aging. So this isn’t a good time to operate heavy machinery or handle tasks that require close concentration.

Ideal Time For: Mentally easy tasks: interacting with colleagues; making phone calls; taking care of routine administrative chores, like filing; visualizing creative solutions to challenges in your life.

Sooooo this is basically giving me the green light to take a nap after lunch and proves why siestas make logical sense. Point taken. Heading to the beach now.

 

Brain Gets Another Boost: 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Mid-afternoon provides the second mental boost of the day, thanks to natural rhythms in brain function. (For more on this, see “Mind is Sharpest” above.)

Explains that moment when you’re scrambling to get everything done before 5pm.

Exercise Performance Peaks: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Late afternoon and early evening are when you’re likely to give your best performance in physical activities that involve strength, speed and power, possibly because your body temperature peaks during these hours, notes Dr. Thomas W. Rowland, a pediatric cardiologist at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Mass., and author of The Athlete’s Clock: How Biology and Time Affect Sports Performance. You also may have more endurance and a greater tolerance for workouts since ratings of perceived exertion are at their lowest in the late afternoon and early evening, reports Rowland.

Ideal Time For: Your daily workout; running; biking; swimming; and competitive sports, like tennis or soccer.

This is my favorite part – and the part that made me want to re-post this. When I was in college I played in intramural Football leagues – Two of them to be exact. One All Girls, One Co-Ed. I LOVED getting through my day looking forward to heading over to the field to run around, get sweaty and use up all my leftover energy. I never knew there was an actual reason to why I wanted to do this. Now, when I get home my day is consumed with figuring out whats for dinner (because let’s be realistic, that’s just as stressful as actually cooking), cleaning up behind the Checha monster and trying to return phone calls, emails and get some editing done before its time to give munchkin a bath. The night time routine requires a crap ton of energy so thank goodness science supports all that craziness.

  48. Dr Sherman K. judicieusement est hors mis par M. King vantant la Loi sur la salubrit茅 de force renforcement derri猫re New York pistolet hall. Pourquoi? Simple. Parce qu’il met en 茅vidence l’茅chec de M. King 脿 unir les propri茅taires d’armes 脿 feu au cours des ann茅es tranquilles l茅gislatives en ce qui concerne la l茅gislation des armes 脿 feu traction. Je savais Cuomo commette des mesures de contr么le des armes 脿 feu radicales d猫s qu’il 茅tait clair qu’il faudrait bureau. Il suffit de regarder ses actions comme AG est raisonnablement en mesure de pr茅dire son 茅volution future de la politique des armes 脿 feu en tant que gouverneur. Le NYSRPA eu amplement le temps de se pr茅parer 脿 la temp锚te, et n’a rien fait. En cons茅quence, ils r茅coltent les fruits d’une organisation renforcer infus茅 avec de l’argent. Il n est pas que New York doesn besoin d’un NYSRPA. Il que New York doesn besoin d’un Tom King 脿 la barre. M. King vous n’avez pas cet 茅tat.
