Top 10 Prime Time for Your Body
1. The Prime Time of brushing teeth
3 minutes after a meal is the best time of mouth-rinsing and brushing. At this time, oral bacteria began to break down the food residues which produced corrosive acidic material substances, they may dissolve enamel and damage teeth. (That means I would have to brush 10 times at least a day, so I think it's a good idea to just brush after breakfast and after dinner. Although I already have the habit of brushing right after I wake up.)
2. The Prime Time of drinking tea
1 hour after a meal is the best time of drinking tea. Many people like to drink hot tea after dinner at once, it is very scientific. Because the tannic acid in tea may combine the iron in the food to produce the insoluble ferric salt which interferes with the body’s absorption for iron and may induce anemia.
3. The Prime Time of drinking milk
Milk is rich in calcium. For the elderly, drinking milk before going to sleep may compensate for the declining state of calcium at night to preserve the bones. At the same time, milk has also hypnotic effect.
4. The Prime Time of eating fruits

7. The Prime Time of walking
45-60 minutes after meal, if you walk with the speed of 4.8 kilometers per hour for 20 minutes, the largest heat consumption can help weight loss. If you go to walk in 2 hours after meal, the effect will be better.
8. The Prime Time of bathing
Every night, bathing with warm water(35℃~45℃) before going to bed can relax the body muscles and joints and speed up the blood circulation which help you fall asleep quietly.
9. The Prime Time of sleep
You had better start your nap from 13 o’clock, when the body has been feeling down and easy to fall asleep. At night, the best time to go to bed is between 10 pm and 11 pm, because people’s deep-sleep time is in the 24 pm to 3 am the next day, and people can be in deep sleep after 1.5 hours.
