Circadian rhythms and study times
Name: Michelle B Lenz
How would one determine the best time of day for him/her to
study for an exam or do homework for a class? How is this related to
one's circadian rhythm?
Probably the simplest way to get at this issue is to pay attention
to yourself. What time or times of day do you generally feel best,
sharpest, or most energized. When do you fine it easiest to think well
and/or to be creative? Do you wake up slowly, require hours to get
functioning well, and fell best in the evenings? Or do you wake up
quickly and feel that your mind is slowing down by dinner time? Perhaps
keeping a journal would help you track this over time.
