“Fall Back” to Sleep
Experts say that the time change is comparable to jet lag. Our body adjusts and causes us to desire sleep earlier and also to get up earlier in the morning. Eventually, our natural rhythms do adjust back to a normal schedule.
We can avoid extending this adjustment by following some trusted advice, here are some tips:
Don’t Take That Nap! Experts say a nap can change your schedule, but not for the better during the time change! You may end up going to bed too late and waking up at the normal hour. This can create too little sleep and make the time change harder on your system! Although it seems you will gain an hour of sleep, it can backfire and is typically a mistake. Instead, try to adjust your schedule by 15 minutes each day to adjust to the time change slowly.
Turn on your lights! Light has a huge affect on our bodies during the time change. When it gets dark earlier, our bodies want to sleep earlier. Turning on more lighting during this time can help you stay awake longer and maintain a normal routine. Waking up to light can also help. Light affects the sleep cycle and according to sleep experts suppresses melatonin, the hormone that makes us sleepier.
