Just as the seasons contain elements of the doshas, so do the hours of the day. 6 am to 10 am is Kapha time. On awakening for the day, you probably feel slow, relaxed, and calm, all Kapha attributes. 10 am to 2 pm is Pitta time. This is when we are at our most active and efficient. Our digestion is strongest between noon and 1 pm, so we can take advantage of that by making lunch our largest meal of the day. Pitta time is most productive for learning. From 2 pm to 6 pm it is Vata time, when we are at our most creative. The cycle repeats again in the evening hours. Kapha time is 6 pm to 10 pm, when we slow down for rest. Pitta time is 10 pm to 2 am when Pitta keeps our body warm, and we use this heat to digest food and rebuild body tissues. And then Vata time is from 2 am to 6 am, when our creativity is expressed in the form of active dreams.
