Dealing With The Time Change

Although we love the longer days, the spring-forward time change can be a challenge for a lot of us! On Sunday March 11, we set our clocks ahead an hour - but what about our internal clock?  Even losing just one hour of sleep can throw us off and leave us irritable and grumpy. Follow these simple tips to help deal!

1. Be proactive! For a few nights before the actual time change, try going to bed 15 minutes earlier than your usual bedtime. This can help you make up for losing the hour.

2. Expose yourself to the bright light early in the morning to train your body to get used to it. We literally need to wake our bodies up from the winter slumber!

3. Just like when you travel you can avoid jet lag by not napping, you should resist the urge to snooze mid-day when the time changes.

4. Follow good sleep hygiene habits like the ones Dr. Polo shared on CTV News!
