How to Adjust to Daylight Saving Time This Sunday

Fit Tip: Welcome Daylight Saving With Evening Workouts

It's daylight saving time this Sunday, March 8, which means we'll lose an hour that day when we "spring forward." The best way to deal with it is to sleep in on Sunday so you don't disrupt your sleep patterns, then go to bed at your normal bedtime on Sunday night. When you wake up in the morning that Monday, you'll notice it's a lot darker out. So you may want to skip the morning workout and exercise in the evening.

Take advantage of the extra hour of daylight by getting bundled up for a bike ride or jog outside, take the dog for a walk in the park, swim at your gym, or pop in a fitness DVD in your living room. Exercising after you get home from a long day of work is a great way to unwind and relieve stress. Plus it will tucker you out and help you fall asleep faster that night when it's time to hit the hay. My buddy DearSugar has her own ideas of how to make use of the extra hour evening light.
