In traditional Chinese medicine it is believed that each organ has its point of highest energy and lowest energy.

This can be a great indicator for those who wake regularly at the same time each night or who feel fatigued at a certain time each day.

Here is a summary below of the activity times of each organ;

1AM – 3AM
THE LIVER | When the liver detoxifies and new blood is made. Also where we hold anger and frustration.

3AM – 5AM
THE LUNGS | The lungs replenish the body with oxygen. Also where we hold grief and sadness.

5AM – 7AM
LARGE INTESTINE | Perfect time for a bowel movement, removal of yesterday’s toxins.

7AM – 9AM
THE STOMACH | Biggest meal of the day is recommended as the stomach has high energy, to optimise digestion and absorption.

9AM – 11AM
THE SPLEEN | Energy is released for the day so is the best time to exercise or do your hardest work.

11AM – 1PM
THE HEART | Pumps nutrients around the body. Good time for a light lunch.

1PM – 3PM
THE SMALL INTESTINE | Food can be effectively digested and assimilated in the body.

3PM – 5PM
THE BLADDER | Metabolic waste moves into the kidney’s filtration system. Drink plenty at this time.

5PM – 7PM
THE KIDNEY | Blood filtered and chemical balance maintained. Good time to activate circulation through walking or stretching, follower by dinner.

7PM – 9PM
CIRCULATION | When nutrients are carried to the capillaries and each cell. Time to relax, read a book.

9PM – 11PM
TRIPLE BURNER | Where the body’s homeostasis is adjusted and enzymes replenished. Recommended to fall asleep during this time.

11PM – 1AM
GALL BLADDER | In order to wake feeling energised, the body should now be at rest. Every hour asleep before 11pm, is worth two of every hour asleep after 11pm.
