Want better sex and better coffee? Try changing the time you have both. Reschedule to the best time for everything and your entire life could change.

Skip Your Morning Starbucks

Having coffee right when you wake up increases your resistance to caffeine, and it stresses you out. A better time to consume coffee? Between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. or between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.

What Time Is Dinner?

That depends on when you go to bed. Experts say that you should eat at least three hours before bed, and keep the meal light. That way you’ll have enough time to burn off a few of those calories before you go to sleep.

Tackle Tough Projects First Thing In The Morning

It’s when you have the most cortisol, the hormone that helps you manage stress. Plus you’ll avoid the procrastination that comes with waiting until later in the day.

Have Brunch Before You Shop

Three hours after breakfast you make your best shopping decisions. Shoppers who spend when they’re hungry or tired at the end of the day make the most returns.

Ask For A Raise Before Lunch

It’s still early so you’ll be able to think on your feet if you get a little pushback. And because your boss’ urgent morning tasks are out of the way, he’ll have time to devote to your request.

Cheat On Your Diet At Breakfast

You’ll have plenty of time to work off that whoopsie during the day. A few leg lifts while you’re at your desk, and you can get your diet back on track.

Schedule Your Flight A Month Ahead Of Departure

You’ll get the cheapest tickets when you buy them three to seven weeks before you plan to fly.

Workout Before Work

You’ll be rewarded for the early wake-up call with a boost of your metabolism that can help you shed pounds even faster.

Ask For An Early Interview Appointment

It’s when employers are most likely to give you high marks compared to other applicants.

Try To Go To Bed At 10 p.m.

Between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m., your body produces all of the right hormones to help you drift off to sleep. Lay down at the same time every day and you’ll soon be drifting off as soon as your head hits the pillow.

Sync Your Playlist And Your Watch

Did you know that music sounds better at certain times of the day?

Buy A Car Later

Wait until the end of summer, or the end of the year, and you can save thousands off of the sticker price.

Chop For A Change

Changing your hair really can change your life. That’s why the best time to cut your locks is when you’re ready to cut your ties with your past.

When’s It Time To Call It Quits

It’s best to bolt when the bad times outweigh the good. Write a list of reasons to stay and reasons to leave. If the negatives outweigh the positives, it might be time to move on.

Sex Is Best In The Morning

Right after you wake up, your body produces a surge of sex hormones and adrenaline to make morning sex the wildest ride you’ll have all day. Plus, it’s also the time men spend the most on foreplay (if you can get up early enough).
