Next weekend brings the end of Daylight Saving Time, and many of us will be turning back the clocks for that "extra hour." Although it might initially feel pleasant to get the perceived bonus hour of sleep, the change still marks a transition in our sleep schedule that can impact us significantly throughout the days or weeks following.
Fortunately, there are simple ways to make the adjustment a healthier one. These tips can also be used if you need to make a permanent sleep schedule change for other reasons, such as moving to a new time zone or starting a new job.
Remember that sleep is vital to your wellbeing, and it is worth a bit of preparation to ensure that you are able to maintain balance.
