Which chronotype are you? And how do you stay in a high-performance mode throughout the day?
A chronotype is your own personal biological clock that controls your body's rhythms—it's the reason you are grumpier in the morning or focus better later in the day.
This genetic biological clock affects much more than your waking and sleeping patterns, it affects when you should eat; when the best time for coffee is; and when you should socialize, work, and exercise, among other things. Find out if your chronotype is a lion, dolphin, bear, or wolf, and how these types impact your sleep and habits.
PEAK WORKING HOURS: 11 a.m.–6 p.m. Kick off your first period of high alertness with something that takes a lot of focus. As your caffeine boost wears off, head outside to pick up lunch on the early side–and soak in some sunlight, which reminds your body that it’s time to be alert and active. Lunch, around noon, will give you a second boost of energy for more high-value tasks. Around 2 p.m., your energy will start to ebb, but you’ll be in a great mood. Time for meetings, brainstorms, and a protein-heavy snack to carry you through the afternoon.
AFTER WORK: 6 p.m.–10 p.m. Exercise–knowing that getting started is probably going to be a little tough. After your workout, wind down for a light dinner, and go easy on the carbs. The period after dinner is prime time to socialize. END OF DAY: 10 p.m.–11 p.m. Power down at 10 p.m., especially all your devices. Lights out by 11. Bears find it easy to stay up late, only to struggle with getting up on time the
