Dr. Joseph Ojile of the Clayton Sleep Clinic explains the benefits of turning back the hands of time.
"Falling back" isn't nearly as disruptive to our bodies as "springing forward." Our circadian rhythms, or our bodies' natural clocks, operate on a slightly longer than 24-hour cycle, he says. "Being able to extend our day is much easier than it is to shorten our day. The body clock is used to a little bit of extra time."
Here are some tips to prepare yourself for Daylight Saving Time:
•Expose yourself to plenty of light.
•Try light therapy.
