The Worst Time of the Day

For me, I divide my day up into certain hours. Sleeping, should be sleeping, full alert (cycle 1), groggy, active, outgoing, full alert (cycle two), should be sleeping. Needless to say, these hours are in chronological order from midnight to midnight the next day.

The hours vary depending on my internal clock, but generally I've noticed for the past year and a half now, that during the hours of 8:30-11:30 a.m., I'm full alert. It's morning, fresh from sleep, looking forward to the day, and it's generally when I write blogs, and posts for website, primarily because I feel I can get the most done in the shortest amount of time.

And wouldn't you know, after a brief passing time from about 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., it slowly declines. And from 2-4 p.m., and I'm in this groggy state. Whether it's just being tired of doing the reptitive typing process or staring at a screen, it makes me lose the energy to type things out, but prompts me to go outside, do something active and do physical work.

It's odd, at least I think. I cannot muster energy to type things out, but I could go on a five mile run or a 10 mile bike ride. Perhaps it's the lack of applying energy to the parts of my body that are not fingers.

So, right now, it's 2:30 p.m. sharp, and I'm managing to type this post to you. It's really all part of some minor project I'm doing. In it, I'm attempting to compare my writing at this hour of the day to other hours of the day to see if there's a significant difference. Right now, I think there's only a motivational difference, and that might be a critical factor in variations in the strength of my writing. In other words, probably a boring non-reader friendly blog post, but a life documentation that I'd like to reference at some point in the future.

There might be more that is needed to be said, but nothing's coming to me now. I'm off to make a late lunch and try to make some plans since it's a Friday.
