Doctor Oz did a segment on the Best Time of Day To Do Anything! When is the best time to cheat on your diet? When is the best time to schedule surgery? When is the best time to avoid dying? When is the best time to avoid heart attacks? Dr Oz answered all of these important questions! There is an actual science behind how all of these work, and they can dramatically improve your health. Internal clocks or Chronobiology is crucial to understanding our bodies. Did you ever wonder why more babies are born in the middle of the night? Or why there are more car accidents at 2 pm? Well, in the middle of the night, you are most relaxed, which makes it a great time to give birth. From your pain threshold to the viscosity of your blood to your body temperature to your lung capacity, all of these differ throughout the day.
Best Time of Day to Sleep
Dr Oz says that the best time of day to sleep is a couple hours after eating your dinner. Plus, you want to be sure to go to sleep around the same time every single night. Even on weekends, you should go to bed at the same time as you do on weekdays (even though you may be tempted to stay up later or party!). Your body gets into a rhythm and works best if you go to sleep and wake-up the same time every single day. Yes, so if you wake-up at 6:30 on weekdays, that means you should wakeup at 6:30 am on weekends as well. So much for sleeping in and going for a late Sunday brunch!
