Here are the optimal times to do everything you do every day

Chances are you already have your day-to-day routine down pat.

And who are we  to tell you — a perfectly autonomous and capable adult human being — to change that routine, which you have likely honed through years of personal experience, preference, whimsy, biological rhythms, etc.?

Fair enough.

… But before you move along, know this: there’s a better, more efficient way of doing things.

A new infographic from Business Insider breaks down the best time of the day to do everything, from interviewing for a job to the “biological prime time” for doing your best work. The info was culled from a few productivity sources around the web, and offers up some tips any mindful fella can incorporate into his routine as soon as the sun rises tomorrow morning.

Speaking of which: The best time to exercise? First thing in the morning, before breakfast, which sets your body up for an all-day fat burn.

Your best creative work? After work, around 6 p.m., when there’s less distraction exhausting your inhibition.

Biggest takeaway? Midafternoon naps are the way to go, and should be taken between 2 and 3 p.m. Throw it in your calendar.
