Daylight Saving Time: How to Spring Forward Without Affecting Your Sleep

It’s almost that time of the year, Daylight Saving Time, where we turn our clocks forward one hour ahead. Starting Sunday morning, we will all have to wake up one hour earlier thanks to the brilliant plan that originated in World War I to save coal used for heat and light by having people start their days closer to sunrise and go to bed earlier.

In the 1970s, Daylight Saving time was extended into the winter. According to government studies, about 1% of the country’s electricity use was saved. But those savings, many say, depend on where you live in the United States. That extra hour during the sweet summertime often means more people in warmer regions — such as the south – head in tandoors to beat the heat. They then turn on their cooling units, adding, rather than subtracting from energy consumption.

Experts say that losing an hour of sleep is similar to the feeling of jet lag and the body’s circadian clock is designed to adjust to such changes. In a few days, the new schedule becomes normal such as it does when travelling to foreign countries.

So how can you get into the swing of things with ease when the clock goes forward Sunday? Starting today, tuck yourself into bed about 15 to 20 minutes earlier each night so by the time Sunday morning rolls around, your body is getting used to a  little more sleep. You may even opt for eating dinner an hour earlier on Saturday evening to prepare.

Spending time outdoors and in the sunshine on Sunday morning may also help your internal clock reset to the extra hour of daylight. When Sunday night approaches, go to bed at your usual time so your body will be ready to wake up on Monday after your usual hours of sleep. We may not like Daylight Saving Time, especially when we have to spring forward, but it appears as though it is here to stay for the foreseeable future.
