Discover Your Chronotype

You’re either a Dolphin, Lion, Bear, or Wolf.
1. Dolphins tend to be light sleepers and insomniacs. Low sleep drive.

2. Lions are early risers, exhausted by early evening. Medium sleep drive. Executive COO go getter types.

3. Bears tend to go with the sun’s schedule. High sleep drive. 55% of the population. Our 9a-5p schedule is essentially set up by and for bears.

4. Wolves have tough time in the morning, get energized by evening and night. Medium sleep drive. 15-20% of population. Creative types, writers, actors, musicians.

These circadian choronotypes are the result of your specific genetics. Your body’s internal clock regulates melatonin vs serotonin levels, body temperature rise vs dip, and many other factors that result in your sleep needs and energy levels.

Depending on your type, there are different suggestions for your daily routine (when to eat, exercise, drink caffeine, work, be creative, sleep, etc) to maximize productivity.
