At one time, the theory of biorhythms was very popular. The theory behind it is that our lives are affected by three primary cycles: Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual. These three cycles can be plotted as sine waves, beginning at zero on the day that a person is born. When any of the individual cycles is at a high point, the
