6:20 a.m.: Send an important email.

Studies show most people check their email at the beginning of the day, so sending an email first thing means it's more likely to be read.

7:00 a.m.: Have Sex.

Blood circulation is higher in the morning, which makes for quicker arousal. Sex also triggers endorphins that will help you start your day happier and more energized.

8:00 a.m.: Drink an iced beverage.

Dr. Oz's tip to trick your metabolism is to drink an iced beverage an hour or two after waking up so your body has to burn calories to warm itself. PRETTY COOL TRICK.

8:30 a.m. Get a haircut.

According to Real Simple, the best time of day to get a good haircut is between 8 and 9 a.m. when appointments won't be backed up and your hairdresser is less stressed.

2:30 p.m. Get a root canal.

If you need to get any serious dental work, get it done in the early afternoon. Your body is best prepared to handle the procedure at this time and the meds, which typically last from 8-10 hours will keep you feeling good until you go to sleep.

3:30 p.m.: Tweet something.

Tweets posted between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. tend to get more retweets, when people are taking a mid-afternoon break from working but aren't generating as much of their own content. Go ahead and Tweet-brag about your upcoming vacay.

4:00 p.m.: Clean your house.

If you're allergic to dust or mites, your allergies will be more severe in the morning so it's best to do your cleaning in the late afternoon.

5:00 p.m.: Ask for a raise.

An increase in body temperature during the late afternoon improves brain function and alertness. And just like you, your boss is probably in a good mood when they're about to go home.

5:30 p.m.: Have a drink.

While multiple drinks act as a depressant, one glass of beer or wine (especially for women) is actually a stimulant. Early evening is the best time for booze to give you a boost for nighttime activities and still allows your body enough time to metabolize it before bed.

5:45 p.m.: Go to the gym.

Dr. Matthew Edlund, head of the Center for Circadian Medicine, says the best time to do cardio is in the early evening. That's when your lungs, eyes, and muscles can work most efficiently. Plus, finishing exercise at least three hours before going to sleep will allow your body to fully cool down. WERK IT.

6:30 p.m.: Eat dinner.

An early dinner will help prevent evening snacking. And finishing a meal at least three hours before going to bed will help you sleep better.

7:00 p.m.: Go grocery shopping.

Shopping after eating will help you make better choices, and getting there after the post-work rush will give you more elbow room in the aisles. Most stores also start discounting fresh-made items toward the end of the day. BRB, buying all the muffins.

8:00 p.m.: Post to Facebook.

If you want to get the most likes, around 8 p.m. is the best time to post. People are less likely to check Facebook during work hours than other social media sites, but in the evening people are relaxed and reading more for fun than information.

8:15 p.m.: Walk your dog.

Dog experts say between 8 and 9 p.m. is the best time for both you and your dog to take an evening stroll. You have more time to let your dog walk at its own pace, and you'll both release excess energy before bed.

9:00 p.m.: Read something.

For improved memory, read in the evening hours. Your brain is more suited to retain the information you read at this time of night, and slower activities get your body ready for sleep. ERMEMBRHNS MAH FRAVRIT.

9:30 p.m.: Take a shower.

Taking a warm shower before bed can help you get to sleep better. When you come out of a shower, your body temperature lowers, signaling that it's time to rest.

9:35 p.m.: Get an idea (in the shower).

Studies show that most people are likely to get good ideas while they're in the shower. And with your brain already in the mood to remember things, you're more likely to actually keep the ideas and use them.

9:45 p.m.: Apply deodorant.

In order to fully protect you, the ingredients in deodorant need to be absorbed. Applying before bed when you're less likely to sweat will give it time to get to work for the next day.

9:50 p.m.: Floss your teeth.

Assuming you're only going to floss once a day (/week/month/etc), dentists say before bed is the best time. Food stuck between teeth all night is more likely to cause cavities and WORSE: bad breath.
