Learning to Learn:
Leveraging your
Circadian Rhythm
@allygreer
Know those feelings
when you...

@allygreer
Hit the sweet spot on your
driver?

@allygreer
Toss that crumpled paper
straight into the waste
basket?

@allygreer
Or come up with
the perfect punchline?

@allygreer
Ahhh...the joy that is
heightened
cognitive ability.

@allygreer
This is no coincidence,
though...

...ever hear of a
circadian rhythm?
@allygreer
It’s a biological clock
in our bodies.

@allygreer
And it keeps us
alert during the ‘right’ times
of the day.
@allygreer
Because of this, it’s
not unusual
to experience
moments with peaks
in focus and
creativity.

@allygreer
But, there’s a catch.

@allygreer
Every body responds uniquely
to its circadian rhythm.
@allygreer
Figuring out your own takes
a little bit of effort.

@allygreer
But once you do...

@allygreer
Your productivity will soar.

@allygreer
Here’s the secret:
It’s one part self-awareness,

one part recording,

and two parts willingness to make a change.

@allyg...
Spend a few days tracking
your levels of

focus, energy, and hunger.

@allygreer
Identify the patterns...
@allygreer
...and begin scheduling your work
days accordingly.

@allygreer
Now, you’ve unlocked the
efficiency of your own
biological processes,
@allygreer
and can dance to your
own circadian rhythm.

Learning to Learn: Leveraging your Circadian Rhythm

There are a few distinct, precious moments of heightened sensory elation that we can achieve through unique actions; whether that be hitting the sweet spot on your driver from the tee box, tossing that crumpled up piece of paper that started out as a great idea and delivering it perfectly into the waste basket 10 feet away, or something as simple as arriving at the perfect adjective when telling a story to a friend.

Achieving a greater sense of cognitive ability when interacting with either the external environment around you or the internal synapses of your own brain is an equally satisfying accomplishment that many believe would lead to immediate success. There is no special formula for arriving at a heightened rate of learning, enhanced memory, or sudden talent for verbiage; however there is a proven internal process that you can utilize in order to maximize your work output, in channeling your Circadian Rhythm.
