Many still struggle with losing an hour of sleep when we “spring forward”. It happens again this weekend. Here are a few tips from experts that should help you adjust.

1.  Cut out caffeine.  Don’t have any caffeine at least six hours before bed this weekend.

2.  No alcohol either.  Even just one drink can disturb your sleep.

3.  Eat light.  Don’t eat a meal two or three hours before you plan to go to bed.  It can interfere with the quality of your sleep.

4.  Make your bed a place you want to sleep in.  Meaning, fresh clean sheets . . . and no phones or tablets.

5.  Go to bed earlier.  To minimize the impact of the time change, make a few gradual adjustments rather than one big one.

6. Go to bed 15 to 30 minutes earlier than usual TONIGHT, and again tomorrow.  You should be fully adjusted by Monday.

Try these or do what we’ve always done and just deal with it…haha!
