Ep 76 Circadian Rhythm

June 26, 2023

Good morning from New York City. This morning I’m thinking about circadian rhythm. In case you missed it, I did a recent pod on body intelligence and the clues and cues we get from our body. That can anything from our racing heart, our blood pressure rising or a surge of energy over something. It really helps when you tune into that. What I was thinking about this morning was a time back in Milan. Many years ago I was traveling a lot, so much so that I had my small overnight suitcase always sitting open on a countertop in my laundry room. So, it was a period of a lot of work and movement and travel and all of that. I remember I was talking to my sister Pam one night, Pam and I said to her ah, I feel so guilty. I can’t even get myself to put my laundry in the washing machine in the evening. I was basically lamenting my laziness. Her response was funny. She said “oh, you’re a Klein. Kleins are morning people. We don’t get anything done in the evening.”

It was like lightening had struck and I was like, oh my God, you’re right. It was like a huge relief, and after that I shifted to getting my stuff done in the morning. While that may sound very basic, tuning into your circadian rhythm is so very helpful. For those of you who are already tuned in, that may sound very banal. Trust me some people don’t really recognize how important our circadian rhythm is, and how you can organize your life, your workflow and your activities around your natural energy levels and circadian rhythm. It can be things around meal prep or going to the gym or writing. Whatever it is you want to get done or that feels important to you, ask yourself the question what’s the best time of day to do that activity? If you already know you have a natural lull, how can you organize around that? Or on the other side of the spectrum, when you know you have really strong energy or focus what’s the best use of that time?
