Circadian Rhythm: The Power Of Your Body Clock

Feb 12, 2023

What is our body clock?

Our bodies have internal clocks, which govern the function of our organs and system. Noble-Prize winning science reveals that each of us has an optimal time to wake up and fall asleep, which biologically establishes our energy levels and focus throughout the day, or our circadian rhythm (morning person, neutral person, evening person).

For example, morning people tend to be more productive in the first part of the day and more creative towards the evening. Conversely, evening people tend to be more creative during the first part of the day, while their analytical strength is in the evening.

What are the benefits?

Matching your daily calendar to your body clock , you match your energy levels to the right tasks, increasing your performance and efficiency. This applies both to your physical activity, such as working out, as well as your mental one - there is an optimal time for deep work, 1:1 meetings, work and life chores, and even brainstorming.

Being out of sync, on the other hand, is proven to lead to more stress and anxiety, lower performance, and burn out, sometimes seriously affecting both your mental and physical health.

While a perfect sync is hard to achieve, being close to your natural rhythm significantly improves your overall performance and well-being.

What are the different stages during the day?

There are three main types (chronotypes): morning person, neutral person, evening person. Each exhibits a pattern of their daily energy levels, with three distinct stages.


That’s when we are best at analytical tasks and work, which requires focus and clear thinking.


Our dips are the lowest energy level in the day (excluding sleep), when we should administrative and repetitive tasks, or simply relax and recharge.


Our recovery periods are higher energy than the dips, but lower than the peaks. This time is ideal for creative work: from doing brainstorming and strategy to solving open-ended and hard questions.

Morning and Neutral Types

The morning and Neutral types have a very similar pattern. The main difference is the time those stages take place. For a morning type, they will usually see the peak earlier in the day around 8 AM while the neutral type would get it around 10 AM.

Evening Type

For the evening type, it is the same pattern but reversed. They usually peak around the end of the day.
