Daylight saving time ends on Sunday, November 4 at 2:00 am
Sunday, November 4 at 2:00 am, the clocks will be turned back one hour, ending daylight saving time for much of the country. Like many people, I’ve always had a difficult time adjusting to the time change. It usually takes a couple of days before I start to get adjusted. Below are a few tips that could help you adjust to the time change and get the most out of the extra hour.
- Take advantage of the morning light. Exposure to the bright light in the morning will help you adjust.
- Don’t take naps. Avoiding naps is key for adjusting to the time change.
- Exercise. Believe it or not, exercising earlier in the day can help you maintain energy throughout and promotes healthy sleeping patterns. A steady morning walk can do wonders for your body.
- Don’t eat late. Eating food too close to bedtime can interfere with sleep quality and give you energy that keeps you awake. Make sure dinner time and bedtime are far enough apart so you get quality rest.
- Don’t forget to set your clock back 1 hour. Surprisingly in a 2010 study by Rasmussen Reports, 27 percent of participants admitted they forgot to change their clocks.
