We've talked about that on this show before. Knowing the best time to do all sorts of things can increase your success in love, at work, when dieting and so on. So, here's what to do when, courtesy of Woman's World magazine.

  • If you're trying to decide between two job offers, or just what to do after work   aim to decide at about 11:00 a.m. According to researchers at the University of Washington, this is when the good mood receptors in your brain are most active, and your body's temperature is on the rise. These factors boost your brain's ability to process information, and make the best decisions.
  • If you need to get a root canal, or do anything else unpleasant   schedule your appointment between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Pain tolerance is at it's highest in the early afternoon when cortisol - a stress-hormone that has anti-inflammatory benefits   is at its peak. Not only will you feel less pain, but you'll cut down on any stinging, redness and swelling.
  • If you'd like to ask out someone you've had your eye on, do it right after you get some good news. According to experts, our voice gives cues to the people we talk to. If you talk to someone when you're feeling upbeat, this sends the message that time spent with you is exciting.

And finally, if you'd like to indulge in a sinful dessert, do it after a good workout. Researchers at the Washington University School of medicine have found that calories in a "cheat" meal are much less likely to get stored as fat if you eat them during the two-hour period that follows 60 minutes of vigorous exercise.
