The Human Body Energy Clock, otherwise known as the Chinese Body Clock, claims to help people live their best by doing different things at different times of the day. According to the belief, various organs of the body are more active at different times of the day.
This 24 hour cycle is believed to help us know when to exercise, eat, have sex, rest and sleep. It also acts as a way to communicate with a particular organ of the body.
1.Between 3 and 5am:
You’re ending your final sleep cycle and the lungs are fully in play. Deep breathing helps bring oxygen back into your blood and settle your nerves.
2.Between 5 and 7am:
Your large intestine is at its busiest. This is an optimal time for elimination, as you’re beginning your day with a fully cleansed body.
3.Between 7 and 9am:
Your stomach is front and center. Breakfast should be your largest meal as it’s the optimal time to digest. Have a breakfast high in fiber as well.
4.Between 9 and 11am:
Your pancreas and spleen are hardest at work. They’re helping your body metabolize the food you’ve eaten and create energy for the day. This is a great time to exercise and get your work done.
5.Between 11am and 1pm:
Your heart is the star of the show. It’s now working hard pumping oxygen and nutrients through your blood, giving energy and nourishment to your whole body. This is a great time to have a cup of tea and maybe take a nap.
6.Between 1 and 3pm:
Our small intestine is working at finishing digesting your breakfast. Lunch should be eaten now.
7.Between 3 and 5pm:
Your bladder is preparing for a major release of metabolic waste. This is a great time to drink a big glass of water and engage in some mentally challenging activities.
8.Between 5 and 7pm:
The kidneys are continuing to do their work cleansing the body of waste. Continue drinking water. This is a great time for light exercise, stretching, and a small dinner.
9.Between 7 and 9pm:
Your blood pressure is at its highest. It’s a sign that you should stretch, kick back, and relax. This is also an ideal time for sex.
10.Between 9 and 11pm:
Your endocrine is working to create equilibrium and replace enzymes used throughout the day. This is the easiest time for falling asleep.
11.Between 1 and 3 am:
You should stay away from heavy drinks and unhealthy foods. The liver releases and processes toxins during this time. An unhealthy diet can strain this vital organ.
12.Between 3 to 5 am:
This is the best time for your lungs.The body should be kept warm at this time too to help the lungs replenish the body with oxygen.
Though many people swear by the human body clock, no studies have been able to prove that it is completely true. Scientists, however, have done some studies on an internal body clock that has many of the same principles as the Chinese version. Researchers have been able to conclude that the body’s internal body clock is essential for cell repair and preventing cancer and other diseases from occurring.
