When we change the clocks, our bodies resist. We have an internal body clock that tells us when we are sleepy, when to wake up, when we are hungry, etc.
Here are some ideas to implement at this time of change that will support your best heath.
1. Keep electronic devices out of your bedroom. If you are working from home and need your computer and other devices in your bedroom, be sure to power them down completely to minimize the lights.
2. Move your cell phone away from your bedside so you are not tempted to use it while getting ready to sleep, or upon waking. If you use your cell phone as an alarm, either find an alternate alarm clock, or get up to turn off the alarm. Minimizing high intensity light and refraining from reading media immediately upon waking are good habits to form.
3. Keep the amount of sleep you get consistent. Make adjustments for the time change. Although it's tempting to sleep in on weekends, your body will thank you if you keep your sleep habits consistent.
