Dealing with Daylight Saving Time Affecting Sleep


Most Americans are going to lose an hour of sleep this weekend with Daylight Saving Time starting Sunday.

Dr. Nancy Foldvary, a sleep specialist with the Cleveland Clinic, says that small change might not seem like much, but it can be disrupting for many. She says springing forward affects our circadian rhythm.

Some suggestions for coping better are going to bed ten to 15 minutes earlier than normal, getting up ten to 15 minutes earlier, and sitting in the sunlight early in the morning while you have breakfast or relax. Experts say that exposure to sunlight will help your body adjust to the time change.

Clocks will need to spring forward in most of the U.S. at 2 a.m. Sunday.
