What your daily routine should look like, according to science
Wondering if it's better to workout in the morning or at night? Whether that multivitamin you pop every morning does anything? Or perhaps how long you need to workout to start to see results?
As it turns out, scientists have been looking for answers to these questions too.
You can use their answers to guide many of the decisions you make on a day-to-day basis, from what you eat in the morning to how often you wash the sheets you sleep in.
Skip the shower.
Brew your coffee — but don't drink it yet.
Get your heart pumping.
Or skip breakfast entirely.
Ditch the multivitamin.
Drink plenty of water.
Have a lunch that looks somewhat like your breakfast.
Take breaks from screens to avoid eye strain.
Watch your mid-afternoon caffeine intake.
Snack on something you've prepped ahead.
On your commute home, don't agonize over germs.
Skip happy hour, or go simply for the food and company.
Put away screens for at least 30 minutes before bedtime.
Before you tuck in for the night, make sure your sheets are clean.
