How I structure my day to capitalise on my peak energy spots

Here’s how I structure my day to capitalise on peak energy levels. 

I’m a morning person.

I’ve got energy at 5:30 in the morning, and I’m ready to go most days.

What I tend to find is after I get home from exercise and health and working out and whatever, I’ll make sure I have some breakfast.

I won’t have a coffee until about 10 o’clock.

Typically, my energy levels tend to start dropping around lunchtime.

That’s when I’ll have some lunch, nothing too heavy, and then my energy levels pick up a little bit and then they start to drop again.

 So I tend to have two of “energy peaks”. 

The way that I structure my afternoon, is I get more of my creative and thinking-type work done in the morning when my brain is most active.

If I’ve got a long day of shooting videos, I’ll just kind of grind my way all the way through.

But I tend to structure meetings and calls in the afternoon when my energy levels are a little bit lower, when I don’t need to do as much critical thinking.

And that’s how I tend to match my tasks to my energy levels throughout the day.
