What is the best time of day to complete your most important and challenging tasks? Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky, authors of the bestselling Find Time, write that the best time of day for this is early morning or late evening. Why? Let’s tell you more.
Time after waking up is the most energy-intensive resource.
If you have trouble waking up in the morning, try an experiment. For example, get up early during the week and go to bed no later than 10pm.
If it is difficult and unusual for you to fall asleep so early, try to “help” your body “tune in” to sleep – closer to the appointed time, dim the lights in the rooms, set the “night mode” on your smartphone. To wake up easier in the morning, first turn on the light or open the curtains – our body perceives light as a natural signal to wake up.
Then “invent” your personal morning ritual (for many, this is checking the social media feed without getting out of bed, but this option is not suitable).
You can take a contrast shower, cook breakfast, do exercises. The main thing is that the process is long enough – at least 15 minutes. This will help your body’s systems “get in motion” and tune in to the new day. After that, get down to completing your main task.
There are people whose creative energy is activated precisely at night. The difficulty lies in the fact that the activity of everyone, be it larks or owls, naturally decreases towards evening. To “cheer up” and tune in to work, set your brain in motion – read a chapter of a novel, watch a movie (not a series, but a whole film – there is a risk of “not breaking away” from the series). All this will help you find the right attitude.
And one more important rule – limit your time on the Internet. When our concentration is low, we are easy prey for Pools of Infinity, and you can easily find yourself reading the posts from the series “5 Outfits for a New Year’s Eve Party,” when you needed to complete your presentation. Deliberately leave your phone in another room or turn it on “airplane mode”.
