6 Ways to Improve Your Body Function After Daylight Saving Time Ends

It’s that time of year again, where we gain an hour of sleep, and the end of Daylight Saving Time. On November 4th , most of the U.S. will turn their clocks back by an hour. We can sleep more or lounge around for an extra hour.  Sounds like a good deal, doesn’t it?

Adding an extra hour to your sleep schedule may seem helpful, but the change in time could have negative effects on your body. The change in schedule can throw off the body’s internal clock. Studies by Timothy H. Monk & Lynne C. Alpin say that waking times took up to a week to adjust. Examination of individual differences in Daylight Saving Time adjustment produced results that were consistent with those from previous studies in the shift-work and jet-lag areas.

To combat the effects of the ending of Daylight Saving time change, here are 7 tips you can use to improve your body function:

  1. Practice better sleeping habits before the time change occurs. Stick to a bedtime routine and prep your body for bed. For example, listen to relaxing music, take a warm bath or both!
  2. Keep bedtime dark. At night make sure the lights are dim before you go to bed. This is a cue to your body that it’s time for sleep. Additionally, turn off any screens, like tv, phones, tablets or any other devices that emit bright light.
  3. Cut out caffeine at night. (We would say completely, but let’s not talk crazy.) Avoid any beverages or foods that contain caffeine at least 6 hours before you hit the hay.
  4. Be aware of your eating habits. What you eat and when you eat can throw your body off rhythm. Your organs, such as your pancreas, liver and stomach have their own clocks that respond to food. Eat most of your calories during the day when you are active and eat lighter in the evening.
  5. Exercise keeps you blood flowing and carries more oxygen through your body. Make a note of when and what type of exercise you’re doing. Intense workouts late in the day may disrupt sleep. On the contrary, stretching before bed may relax your body and get it ready for sleep.
  6. Exposure to as much sunlight as possible in the morning can help your body sync with the new sleep schedule. If morning sunlight is not available to you, a special light box or lamp that simulates sunlight can help as well. Bright light therapy is also helpful for minimizing seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and preventing insomnia.

Hopefully, these tips will help you adjust to the new time change.
