At 2:00 a.m. on March 11th, 2018, the clocks will spring forward 1 hour to mark the beginning of Daylight Saving Time. Although it may not seem like much, losing the extra hour of sleep can alter your routine and sleeping patterns. Consider these simple tips to “spring forward” easily into daylight saving time this year:

  • Go to bed a little earlier than usual to adjust to the time difference.
  • Do not forget to set your alarms, as your body’s clock may be a little off.
  • Eat meals at your normal scheduled time to help your body adjust to the time change quicker.
  • Cut your caffeine intake in the afternoon and at night to fall asleep earlier.
  • Stay alert on the roads, as many drivers will be adjusting to the time change as well. Sleep deprivation can lead to an increase in traffic accidents.
  • Use the extra daylight to perform occasional tasks such as changing the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors around the house.
