How often have you heard the sentence "I'm not a morning person; I'm a night owl!"? Maybe you even say it to yourself. I need to tell you, though, that unless you actually sit up on a perch hooting all night long, this is inherently untrue.
Human beings have evolved through a lengthy process of change governed by natural laws. Our ancestors lived in harmony with nature and followed her lead since they knew that failing to do so would threaten their survival. They paid great attention to the 24-hour cycle of the sun, noting how their physical, mental, and emotional health mirrored the sun's natural shifts.
The ancient Chinese took this knowledge a step further with the Law of Midday & Midnight, or the Chinese Clock. This concept teaches that 12 of our internal organs are governed by the day's cycle, each functioning with more energy and vitality during a certain two-hour period every day. At the opposite side of the clock, that organ receives its lowest ebb of energy.
Here's how this ancient philosophy breaks up the day. Keep it in mind and you just might notice your internal clock resetting to give you that boost of energy you need to finally become a morning person.
