“Work at sunrise and rest at sunset” is the routine of the Chinese nation. According to traditional Chinese medicine, daytime belongs to Yang, and people should work more; It’s cloudy at night, so you should sleep.

Yin Shi (3:00-5:00): after the liver pushes out the old and brings forth the new, it supplies fresh blood to the lungs and sends it to the whole body through “the lungs move towards the hundred veins”.
Mao Shi (5:00-7:00): the lungs send blood to the whole body and promote the large intestine to enter an excited state.
