We all wish we could change our fates or control our destinies. Well, what if I told you there is a way to know ahead of time when you may want to pass up a socially taxing encounter or postpone an intense project for later, just to avoid a stressful situation and any ensuing effects it would have on your happiness?
BiorhythmΩ is the answer. You may have heard of it. It links loosely with the “stars” and when you were born; all that good stuff. But the theory behind biorhythms is not new. Summarized in papers by two German intellectuals, biorhythms provides foresight into your strengths and weaknesses by predicting when you will have good days and when you will have bad days.
Your biorhythm is based on the day you were born. From there, your biorhythm tracks four rhythms based on your birthday and the number of days you have been alive, looking at today’s date. This creates waves on a graph that let you visually see when you have high points and low points for each rhythm.
The four rhythms are:
- Physical – related to physical fitness, this rhythm tracks when you will days full of energy and days when it would be best to slow down and take a break.
- Emotional – simply put, this is how well you will react to your surroundings and events. If you are at a low point, it is highly advised that you avoid stressful situations that my tax your emotions.
- Intellectual – your intellect is usually constant, but the reason for mapping it is to know when your high points may collide with the other three being low. Your intellect at those times may be affected and diluted temporarily. On the flip side, if you see a time in your cycle when the intellect coincides with high points for two other rhythms, it may be the perfect time to pitch that new idea at work or home.
- Intuitive – refers to the ability to judge the feelings of others and how your actions or actions of others may affect them and the situation around them. If this is at a high point and the other rhythms are low, you may not want to take stab at assuming that someone is upset or unhappy and then try to help them. You may be wrong.
For all four rhythms, they are scored from -100 to 100. When any rhythm is at 0, this is a dangerous time. At times when several rhythms are converging at 0 or are all at a low point, it’s a good idea to listen to your inner voice and keep calm and rested.
The app graphs out all four rhythms so you can see when each one is doing well and when each is declining to a low point. It is helpful to note when more than one is declining, because this helps you plan accordingly.
Another great feature is the ability to view your standing by each rhythm. You can see data for just the physical, intellectual, intuitive and emotional – one at a time.
BiorhythmΩ may be sketchy to some, but is certainly worth looking into if you want to align the stars in your favor. Timing is everything!
