Discover the Ideal Time for Your Routine Activities According to Your Age

There seems to be an ideal time for everything, even for choosing your new perfume. But since your biological clock changes as you age, we at WeGoRo invite you to find out the ideal time to do each of your daily activities according to how old you are.

In your twenties

9:30 AM: When orexin (the wakefulness hormone) doesn’t override melatonin (the sleep hormone) until midmorning.

In your thirties

8:10 AM: Your biological clock starts all the processes earlier to maximize the time you’re alert.

In your forties

7:50 AM: Your wakefulness cycle "wins" over your sleep cycle much earlier when you’re 40.

In your fifties

7:00 AM: At this age, the time spent in the deep sleep phase decreases.

In your sixties

6:30 AM: Your body knows best when it comes to the beneficial effects of sunlight, so it wakes up early, just like you did when you were a child.

In your twenties

10:00 AM: Young people often skip breakfast simply because they don’t feel hunger at this time. The thing is that up to two hours after waking they are in a state of "sleep inertia." A cup of coffee can help shake it off.

In your thirties

8:40 AM: It’s best for you to avoid sugary or starchy foods.

In your forties

8:20 AM: A meal rich in fiber will make you feel full a little longer.

In your fifties

7:30 AM: Your metabolism slows down about 5% for every decade after you turn 40, so this is just the right time for refueling.

In your sixties

7:00 AM: Blueberries give you a good portion of energy without adding too many calories.

In your twenties

12:00 PM: At this age, your brain starts being productive at noon...although your boss won’t like that idea very much.

In your thirties

10:40 AM: At midmorning, your cortisol level reaches its natural peak and gives an impulse of alertness.

In your forties

10:20 AM: When enough time has passed for that sleep inertia to disappear.

In your fifties

9:30 AM: Your level of alertness and concentration are at their peak.

In your sixties

9:00 AM: The connections in your brain are at their most active.

In your twenties

3:30 PM: Having started your day so late, this is exactly the time when you need some fuel to maintain concentration.

In your thirties

2:10 PM: If food is delayed until this time, your body will start to use its glucose reserves and this may cause irritation.

In your forties

1:50 PM: Eating at this time helps combat that energy slump that occurs midafternoon.

In your fifties
