Everyone has their own unique body-clock and will function better across different parts of the day. Research shows we are biologically predisposed towards being either an early bird or a night owl. Find out if you are a morning or a night person by taking our quiz.
You bound out of bed in the morning and find you have the most energy and creativity at this time. Famous early birds include Michelle Obama and the CEO's of Twitter, Pepsi and Apple.
Make the most of your body-clock by scheduling your workload for early in the day and leave the evenings for some time to yourself. If you have a night friend who struggles getting up in the morning, share your motivation by encouraging them to join you for an early run or exercise class. This way you can help them to boost their energy for the day ahead and you won't miss out on quality time if you can't join their late plans.
There are few things more painful than dragging yourself up in the morning, but you can keep working or enjoying yourself hours after everyone else is tucked up in bed. Notable night owls include Elvis Presley, inventor Thomas Edison and Ernest Hemingway.
Using your evenings to work on personal projects means you still have time to make the most of your creativity after the working day. However, early starts can be difficult if you're naturally more awake later on. Leave plenty of time to unwind before bed and try meditation or breathing exercises to quiet your busy mind for sleep.
