Some people can’t function without their early morning yoga class to get them centered for the day. Others wouldn’t even consider breaking a sweat before noon. And just as exercise at a particular time of day is an integral part of a daily routine, our data has shown us that Musers also prefer their brain-training at certain times of the day.
But is there any one time of day that’s better than another?
Experts say that the way to form a habit is to to choose a time of day you can stick with. However, if you have trouble with consistency, research suggests that morning may be the best time to do your thing; it’s better to get consistent habits in before other time pressures interfere.
It would seem some of our Musers agree, as you can clearly see a peak in the number of sessions being completed around 8am in the graph above (Muser’s local time).
For some – as evidenced by the spike in the graph between the hours of 8pm and midnight – the night time is the right time for Musing. Likely they’ve made Muse part of their nightly ritual, reducing their stress levels just before sleep.
Notice how the evening spike is much larger than the one in the morning. This might be a testament to how hard it can be to wake up extra early just to take care of yourself.
a short period of distraction-free time every day – at any time of day – can be transformative.
David Rock, co-founder of the NeuroLeadership Institute and author of Your Brain at Work, believes that a short period of distraction-free time every day – at any time of day – can be transformative.
With that in mind, it’s good to know that there’s no one best time to use Muse. Just make sure it’s at a time that’s right for you.
