Is There A Formula For A Perfect Day?

Time is of the essence. Really, there might be a best time of day to do just about everything. Shout-out to the Daily Mail for coming up with a list of their own.

First up -- the best time to weigh yourself is first thing in the morning, before you put any food in your stomach.

A study from Brown University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill found 61 percent of people who hit the scale in the morning maintained their weight within five pounds.

On that note, exercising in the morning is most beneficial -- if you want a good night's sleep.

Researchers at Appalachian State University found those who exercise at 7am sleep better and have lower blood pressure.

As for the best time to house clean? Late afternoon. If you need to vacuum or do the dishes, do it then.

"This is when coordination is at its peak and mood levels are high," says one expert in chronomedicine who spoke with the Daily Mail.

The best time to work on a project -- late evening. As it turns out, being tired could actually make you more creative. A study out of Albion College found tired students performed better on insight problems.

Here are a few more times Daily Mail called out:

- Researchers at Cornell University in the U.S. found that people are "happiest" at 8 a.m.

- A study published in Psychosomatic Medicine says the "worst time to drink coffee" is around 9:17 a.m.

- According to a study by a group of leading skincare specialists, you "look your best" at approximately 10:06 a.m.

Now you know the formula, so good luck making a perfect day.
