I don't know about you, but I have mixed feelings about daylight savings time (DST).  For those living in places with DST, you will be losing an hour as we spring forward on March 13th. In general, "losing" an hour in the spring is more difficult to adjust to than "gaining" an hour in the fall.
We know how important sleep is for regulating the nervous system. So, how to minimize the impacts of spring forward? The key is to prioritize sleep consistency and optimize light exposure. Having a regular sleep routine, as boring as that might sound, is key. As is timing light exposure - you want to get as much light exposure earlier in the day (ideally, natural daylight by getting outside) and to minimize light exposure later in the day. If you can, it will help to gradually alter your sleep and meal times two to three days before the time change to get in sync with the new time more easily. Stay tuned for more tips on how to upgrade your sleep!
