When is the best time to be most productive


Productivity is an essential aspect of our lives, whether we are working on a project or completing a task. However, not all of us are equally productive throughout the day. Some people are morning larks, while others are night owls. So, when is the best time to be most productive? Let's find out.

The answer to this question varies from person to person. There is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to productivity. However, there are some general guidelines that can help you determine the best time for you to be productive. There is also the universal productivity formula called FEEL4 you can use.

Understand your circadian rhythm and your chronotype:

The first step in determining the best time for you to be productive is to understand your circadian rhythm. This refers to your body's natural sleep-wake cycle. Some people are naturally morning people, while others are night people. Understanding your circadian rhythm can help you identify the best time of day for you to be productive. Below is a video which will help you find out which chronotype you are and explain what that means to you and your productivity.

Identify your most productive time:

Once you understand your circadian rhythm, it's time to identify your most productive time. This is the time of day when you feel the most energized and focused. For some people, this might be early in the morning, while for others, it might be late at night.

Schedule your most important tasks during your most productive time:

Once you have identified your most productive time, it's essential to schedule your most important tasks during that time. This ensures that you are working on your most important tasks when you are at your best. Think about using task management apps like Google Tasks and RememberTheMilk.

Take breaks:

It's important to take breaks throughout the day to recharge your batteries. Taking short breaks can help you stay focused and productive throughout the day. It's recommended to take a break every 90-120 minutes.

Get enough sleep:

Getting enough sleep is crucial for productivity. If you don't get enough sleep, you will feel tired and unfocused, which will impact your productivity. Aim to get 7-8 hours of sleep each night.

And don't forget about powernaps! I'm serious!! Deadly serious. I know you just want to read this and move on, but if I had to pick out one thing that has boosted my productivity more than anything, it has to be the skill of having a powernap. And because you have stuck with me in reading this post (thank you, you beautiful human you), I am going to share my secret sauce with you right now. Are you ready?

All you have to do, whenever you feel you need re-energizing, is find a quiet, safe place where you won't be interupted for the next 30 minutes and play this:

In conclusion, the best time to be most productive varies from person to person. It's important to understand your circadian rhythm and identify your most productive time. Once you have identified your most productive time, schedule your most important tasks during that time, take breaks, and get enough sleep. By following these guidelines, you can maximize your productivity and achieve your goals.
