Is there a best time to sleep? There is a saying that sleeping early and waking up early is good for your health. How true is that? Is it alright to sleep late and wake up late?

You actually has an amazing biological clock ticking inside your body. It is very precise. It helps to regulate your various body functions including your sleeping time.

From 11pm to 3am, most of your blood circulation concentrates in your liver. Your liver gets larger when filled with more blood. This is an important time when your body undergoes detoxification process. Your liver neutralizes and breaks down body toxins accumulated throughout the day.

However if you don’t sleep at this time, your liver cannot carry out this detoxification process smoothly.

  • If you sleep at 11pm, you have full 4 hours to detoxify your body.
  • If you sleep at 12am, you have 3 hours.
  • If you sleep at 1am, you have 2 hours.
  • And if you sleep at 2am, you only have 1 hour to detoxify.

What if you sleep after 3am? Unfortunately, you won’t have any time to actually detoxify your body. If you continue with this sleeping pattern, these toxins will accumulate in your body over time. You know what happens next.

What if you sleep late and wake up late?

Have you tried going to bed very late at night? Did you realize you feel very tired the next day no matter how much you sleep?

Sleeping late and waking up late is indeed very bad for your health. Besides not having enough time to detoxify your body, you will miss out other important body functions too.

From 3am to 5am, most blood circulation concentrates in your lung. What should you do at this moment? Well, you should exercise and breathe in fresh air. Take in good energy into your body, preferably in a garden. At this time, the air is very fresh with lots of beneficial negative ions.

From 5am to 7am, most blood circulation concentrates in your large intestine. What should you do at this moment? You should poop! Pass out all unwanted poop from your large intestine. Prepare your body to absorb more nutrients throughout the day.

From 7am to 9am, most blood circulation concentrates in your stomach. What should you do at this moment? Have your breakfast! This is your most important meal in a day. Make sure you have all the required nutrients from your breakfast. Not having breakfast causes lotsssssss of health problems for you in the future.

That’s the way to start your day

There you are… the most ideal way to start your day. After fully detoxifying your blood during your sleep, you wake up fresh to inhale beneficial energy. Then you pass out unwanted poop from your large intestine. After that, you take in balanced nutrients to prepare your body for a new day.

No wonder people living in villages or farms is healthier. They sleep early and wake up early. They follow their natural biological clock.

Living in city, we have more difficulty in following this sleeping schedule. For me, I have been striving hard to sleep before 12am for more than 20 years! With our new baby, it’s even harder to sleep early. If baby hasn’t sleep, my wife and I cannot sleep.

But once I know the importance of our biological clock, I’ll try my best to follow it. If I wake up early, I usually start my day by checking email. But when I see the clock shows 7am, I know it’s the best time for breakfast. So I’ll try to have my breakfast before 9am for best absorption.

Try to follow this timing as close as possible. I’m sure you will feel fresher and more energetic all day long.

    Where did you get this information about body clock. I am sure you might have a source. Please let us know.

  3. Trace Says:

    Thank you but it seems we would have evolved enough.

    What about those who work evenings? It seems that one’s body would do all of these things regardless at times for oneself.

    Is this scientificically proven?

    Thank you.

    Thats Bull Shit.

    How can body watch the clock?

    How about people working in night shift?

    Its not logical at all – going by the wall clock time.

    I am a doctor and I never saw or read in physiology or medicine to support those claims.

    Hi, thanks for post. I’m not sure as everyone else whether that works or not until I try it. But being a muslim I finally understand why our first prayer in the morning (just before sunrise) has been imposed on us. It’s not about glorifying God alone but mostly to support our body clock which we are unaware. Remember…early birds get the worms!

    So basically only sleep 4 hours ? 11.pm to 3.pm ?
    Surely that is not healthy ?
