Tips for Coping with Daylight Saving Time

Spring Ahead of Daylight Saving

Clocks are due to go ahead one hour on March 9, and I don't know about you, but the one hour of lost sleep can really throw me off. Don't get me wrong, I love it staying light out later, but I also value my sleep. So instead of just dealing with it, you can use the following tips to cope with Daylight Saving Time:

  • Begin to readjust your sleep schedule a few days prior to the time change by going to bed an hour earlier.
  • Modify your eating schedule by having dinner one hour earlier.
  • Be careful when driving or operating machinery on the day of the time change.
  • Avoid napping, particularly before bedtime.
  • Keep a light schedule — such as minimizing driving and avoiding strenuous physical activity — on the Monday after the time change.
  • Eat properly, stay hydrated and remain physically active.
