Ideal times to eat, drink and sleep

Popular Science did a study about how following the body's natural rhythm and routines can keep us healthy. Here are some tips.

As far as coffee and caffeine, it's much better to have it earlier in the day. Late day caffeine intake can mess with your body clock and prevent sleep. For those who can have a hit of coffee late in the day and still sleep, experts say to skip it for a few weeks to see what good rest can feel like.

Eat your biggest meal earlier in the day instead of later, exercise later in the day because your muscle tone is highest at around 5pm and focus on getting that 6 and a half to 8 hours of sleep preferably when your body cools down after 8 or 9pm.

Finally, we have maximum alertness between 10am and 2pm so do more things in that time slot. Also, humans have evolved to be creative at night so maybe your best ideas will come in the evening.

Sounds like a lot, right? Do you agree with most of these body time markers?
