A LITTLE LESS SPRING IN YOUR STEP 6 Tips To Help You Adjust To Daylight Savings

A LITTLE LESS SPRING IN YOUR STEP 6 Tips To Help You Adjust To Daylight Savings

It's that time of year again.........SPRING FORWARD!! You may find that you have a little less "spring" in your step. Never fear, here are 6 tips to help you adjust and get that spring back in your step:

  • Sleep when you're sleepy!! Even though you're losing an hour in the day, it's best to not try to go to sleep an hour early. Go to bed at the time you normally do, instead of trying to “catch up” on the hour DST took away.
  • Don't trick your body during DST. It's important to adjust to the time change right away. If you normally wake up at 7 a.m., keep waking up at that time, even after the clocks have changed.
  • Soak up some sunlight. Get acclimated to the beginning of the day by sauntering over to your nearest window and opening the blinds. Take it slow, since brightness is painful to deal with in the morning, but try to seek light as soon as you can. According to Winter, “it really helps to awaken the brain.”
  • Move around - Even if it's not exercise. To further spark up your senses, it's best to get moving. If you're not a gym person, just do simple things such as jumping jacks or light housework.
  • Resist the urge to nap. Even if you come home from work or school feeling exhausted, fight away any nap-time feelings. After DST, you shouldn't try to grab the lost hour of sleep, because it'll create a harmful cycle.
  • Get your body ready for sleep. If you're slowly getting ready to go to bed, “turn off as many lights as possible,” Winter says. It sends a signal to your body to relax, because sleep is on the way. You'll be physically and mentally prepared to have a night full of total slumber.
