CLEVELAND -- Do you know the best time to make a doctor's appointment to make it so you have very little waiting? What about the best time to take a nap?
Experts are telling us there is "a best time" of day to do just about anything.
These "best times" are based on you getting to bed at night -- after Channel 3 news at 11 -- and waking up early in the morning.
6 a.m. Send e-mail: Sending your e-mail at this hour, when it is most likely to be read, according to a study by HubSpot, a Cambridge, Mass., web marketing firm.
9 a.m. Read Twitter: You are what you read. Read a happy tweet -- be happy. Early in the morning is the best time to read tweets because they're tweeted by people that are in better moods. As the day continues the tweets become more negative and that can make you "less happy" or totally bummed out.
10 a.m. Be productive: Studies show that we are most alert between 10 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., so get through those basic tasks like making your to-do list, responding to e-mails and making phone calls before you start the more skilled tasks of the day.
1 p.m. See the doctor: If you want to avoid a long stay in the waiting room, book your doctor appointment either for when the office opens or right after lunch break. There will be less people, which ultimately means less waiting. Your doctor may smell like lunch, but it's worth it.
2 p.m. Nap: If you ate at noon, your body wants to shut down. Nap, if you can, but make sure it's only 15 to 20 minutes. Otherwise your body will physically start shutting down and you'll wake up groggy.
2:30 p.m. Get physical: According to the experts, this is the time when our body offers the best coordination. Think after-school sports. Maybe help a friend move or play an inter-office full-contact sport.
2:55 p.m. Be NON-productive: A British office study showed that this particular time was when productivity bottomed out. Why? Employees may be busy on social media, planning for that evening, or reading this story on WKYC.com.
3 p.m. Be REproductive: Biological studies show that a woman's reproductive system is most receptive between 2-4 p.m. So...if you're planning a family...plan on being near your spouse.
4 p.m. Tweet: If you want your tweet to "fly" and go viral, this is the time to do it. This is the time when most followers will retweet.
5 p.m. Exercise: Work out, bust a move, move furniture! Whatever you need to do that requires physical performance is best in the early evening.
8 p.m. Get "liked" on Facebook: More people will respond to your posts in a positive way at this time. So, post a status, a picture, a link and you'll get more blue thumbs up at this time.
2 a.m. Dream: This is the time the deepest sleep happens. This is also the time when you have your wildest dreams. Your brain is having a film festival inside of it and chances are, you're the star!
