Here are more “best times” to do some day-to-day duties, courtesy of Condé Nast.
- The best time to SHAVE? At 8 a.m. You’re less likely to bleed if you cut yourself, because in the morning, there are more platelets in your blood that cause it to clot. Not just the guys – this includes shaving your legs, too, ladies.
- The best time to GIVE A PRESENTATION? 11 a.m. That includes presenting yourself, say, in a job interview or review. Why? Because your concentration levels are peaking, so you’re more likely to be alert, articulate and witty.
- Do you need to SEE A DENTIST? Book your appointment for 1 p.m. That’s when your threshold for pain is the highest. Research shows that lidocaine – a common dental painkiller – can last the longest from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m..
- The best time to have your ‘one drink a day’ for heart health is: 5:30 p.m. That’s when your liver metabolizes alcohol most efficiently and can detoxify your body the fastest. Just in time for Happy Hour!
