Most people find that starting starting the session in the morning ON AN EMPTY STOMACH helps draw energy from excess sugar that is in the body.
If following the DR YU protocol, it is easier to do the health bounce when the stomach is not full. Bouncing on a trampoline can give indigestion if too full for some people.
So, the best time for most people to do this is in the morning. In the evening, many people find themselves too fatigued to rebound and then go on the Biomat for an hour especially when many people are hungry when they come home from work. Evening plans also get in the way. Plus, people have to choose working out or doing their daily detox.
Most gyms are the most crowded between 5 to 7 in the morning. People are always in a rush as they have a fixed amount of time to work out. In the evenings at my gym, it's like a socialization party.
When using the Biomat after health bouncing for 20 minutes in the morning, it sets up a domino effect for the day for a healthier day. After the session, having a healthy breakfast ready is something many look forward to. Many people that do their sessions at night find that they end up going to bed later to fit this in their routine. This makes them more tired the next day.

Day Time Biomat Sessions
Most people find that the day time is the best time to do full spectrum sessions especially if following Dr. Yu's protocols. (Google Dr. Yu. and you can find his videos and work. More and more people are finding my site from Dr. Yu. People stumble upon him and learn about far infrared saunas. Many people prefer to sleep on their Biomat that either don't have the time during the day or evening to take sauna sessions. Many people just want to lay down and don't like sitting on a bench. If not doing full spectrum sessions and doing only low temperature FIR sessions, I find that using it at night for 8 hours on low and getting the slower sweat is best. Note: I never sleep on my mat past the 2nd lowest heat setting.
I also want to say that those who do not do sessions in the day and have late night sessions miss the most valuable sleep from 10pm to 2am. Many people only find time to have their sessions at this time. I believe it is so much more important to get sleep during this hour than do sessions on the Biomat. The only time I do FIR sessions on my Biomat at night is if I am sleeping and it's going to enhance my sleep, not keep me up.
Note: many people do not do good at burning 300 to 600 calories in a 30 to 60 minute session with their core up 2 to 3 degrees. In the morning if people get too tired people can become lethargic and not have a productive day. If especially doing full spectrum sessions I do them at night but not too late where it interferes with my sleep. Be aware that electrolytes are usually people's best friend when doing high intense Biomat sessions.
Read before considering doing Biomat sessions after 10pm
Sleep alkalinizes your body.
During this time hormones are condensed.
Next to food, sleep is one of the most abused and taken for granted necessities. If your battery doesn't recharge properly you will wear down, get sick and age. You cannot simply just sleep in late to make up for it. It doesn't work that way. Your body has natural rhythms that are in tune with the Earth, sunlight etc. If you don't play along, you will not be on the Earth that long. We're supposed to have about 8 hours. Our body releases healing hormones between 10 pm and 2 am, and we have to be asleep for them to work. Healthy people on average sleep from 10pm to 6 am.
When should you sleep?
10pm to 2am is the darkest time. The Earth is in the shadow of itself from the Sun.
From 10pm to 2am, wherever you are, the Sun's rays are at their lowest. The Sun is on the other part of the Earth while you sleep and while in this shade, you can sleep without being bombarded with the actinc rays from the Sun. The body can't rest when there are cosmic rays from the Sun that are present. The less of these rays you get while sleeping the better you can regenerate yourself in sleep. You cannot reach that R.E.M. sleep as when you would during those peak hours. The body goes on to regenerate itself better when their is darkness and silence. We do not listen to soft music before or during sleep. Soft music doesn't allow the body to completely rejuvenate. Sleep is a state of being, not monkey mind. Those that stay up all night and then go to sleep around midnight are losing the most valuable hours of sleep.
When we say "the darkest hours" we are not talking about a dark room.
You can sleep with the lights on and we still consider that to be dark. You can go in a dark room or closet and sleep after the peak hours of sleep between 10pm to 2am but you will still be bombarded with the Sun's rays. Maybe if you went into a 12 inch thick lead room it would block these rays but you would still get some of them.
How should you sleep?
Our goal is to "wean" you off the pillow. Using a pillow is usually a sign of a bad ecology. The clearer your airways (sinuses) are the less you will need a pillow for mucous drainage. If your ecology is good you can lay down flat on your back for a good 7 to 8 hours without moving or turning into other positions. With the right body ecology, you should be able to fall asleep within 5 to 10 minutes. Never more than 15 minutes to fall asleep once you have Positional Tolerance. To sleep like baby refers to sleeping comfortably in any position with no pillows or support. Symbiotic people in tune with with nature have excellent sleep patterns with no need for support. Sounds counterintuitive? Consider this: if nature has meant for you to fall asleep a certain way, you will fall asleep despite how unlikely that might seem at first. Horses fall asleep standing up because they don't fight nature and look for support during sleep. Fighting nature and using a pillow over thousands of years, we have lost our positional tolerance. Eventually, if you have one of the pillows below and your ecology is improving, you might keep deflating it until the point where you are only cradled on the sides. I imagine that people 1000's of years ago put animal skins on each side of their head to keep their head from going to the side.
Babies, if you notice, can fall asleep in almost any position. They have not ruined their ecology at this age. This is called positional tolerance. Sure, you may have a little congestion in the morning but not enough that it will drown you or stop you from breathing when you have an aerobic ecology. I believe that once you can sleep for 8 hours without waking up and without moving while on your back then you have understood and feel what it is like to have 3 to 5 lbs of bacteria in your body.
Take the NO PILLOW CHALLENGE!
Can you sleep on your back for 7 to 8 hours without movement? 99.99% of the people coming to our website cannot do this. 99.99% of the people that are symbiotic can. If you symbiotic and have little to no mucous drainage, you might not need one at all. The exception are the few with cervical neck problems or other circumstance.
Sleep disruption is what is robbing many of REM which is necessary for the rejuvenation of the master organs of the mid-brain.
