Chronotype: Intermediate – Bear

Chronotype bear

“Much like its namesake, the bear chronotype follows the solar cycle, and usually doesn’t have much trouble waking up in the morning or falling asleep at night. This chronotype is most productive in the morning, and will typically struggle with an afternoon slump after lunch, generally around 2–4 p.m. Eight hours of sleep is typical for a bear, and normal sleep hours are usually between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. 

The ideal bear schedule looks like: 

  • 7–8 a.m.: Wake up 
  • 10 a.m.–2 p.m.: Focus on deep work
  • 2–4 p.m.: Work on lighter tasks 
  • 4–10 p.m.: Relax and unwind
  • 10–11 p.m.: Get ready for bed 
  • 11 p.m.–7 a.m.: Sleep

Fifty-five percent of the population falls into this category. If bear types fail to get enough sleep at night, they may feel lethargic throughout the day and go to bed earlier than normal. Typically, bear chronotypes are extroverts and can maintain energy throughout conversations.

If you’re a bear, make sure you get enough sleep to sustain your energy levels — unlike your namesake, you don’t get a months-long nap each winter. ”
