Daylight Saving Time is Sunday, March 12 and for many people it can be hard to “spring forward” one hour. Below are some quick tips from the Mayo Clinic to help you adjust to the time change.
- Over the next couple of nights, try going to bed 15-20 minutes earlier each night and waking up earlier each morning. This can help prevent the time change from feeling so drastic.
- If you’re tired on Sunday, take a 15-20 minute nap but not too close to bedtime!
- Avoid sleeping in an extra hour on Sunday, so that you can adjust your sleep schedule over the weekend, rather than Monday morning.
Good sleep is critical to learning and memory, cardiovascular health, mood, immunity, alertness, and metabolism and weight.
