Monday morning of the time change can be ROUGH!
3Tips to adjust to losing an hour of sleep.
1. Ease Into it a few days before by adjusting your sleep routine by 20 minutes. Too late? Don’t wait for the clock to say 10 PM tonight, go to bed at the time you have been all along. Adults should shoot for 7-8 hours of shut eye. Kids need far more depending on their age.
2. Get outdoors! The bright light will help adjust your circadian rhythm. When it’s dark outside our body starts to produce melatonin getting us ready for sleep. So spend more time in the light in the AM. Retrain your inner clock!
3. Practice good habits before bed by avoiding screen time which helps kick melatonin production into gear and calm your mind.
