5 Tips To Help Your Body Adjust To Daylight Savings Time

5 Tips To Help Your Body Adjust To Daylight Savings Time

It’s that time of year again – the daylight hours get shorter as the air gets colder. When I first came to the U.S. I remember thinking how ridiculous this practice of switching the clocks was – I just could not understand the relevance.

While we know this practice is irrelevant, even worse, as Medical Medium® has stated, it comes from darkness – we still must live with it for now.

To help you cope, here are 5 tips to help your body adjust to daylight savings time.

Start Earlier

For the 3 days before you turn the clocks back, start going to bed about 15 to 20 minutes earlier than normal. Begin adjusting the timing of some other daily routines. For example, eat dinner earlier. On Saturday, before you “fall backward,” it is best to set your clock ahead one hour. You should do this during the mid-afternoon.

Working to reset your internal body clock over a few days, as opposed to one night, is easier and more conducive to a smooth transition into good night’s sleep.

 

Bring In Energizing Adrenal Snacks

Remember to keep your adrenals running safely throughout the day. This means you do not want to let yourself get hungry. Use the special combination of adrenal snacks that Medical Medium® talks about. For an easy cheat sheet on adrenal snacks, download my free adrenal healing snacks reference sheet for some of the most energizing combinations.

Avoid Caffeine & Alcohol

Especially in the early evening. We all know how bad coffee and alcohol are for our bodies, and since they are both stimulants it is best to avoid them altogether if you want a good night’s sleep.

Parents should also consider the various sources of hidden caffeine. Such as iced tea, orange soda, chocolate milk, and chocolate ice cream. If you are trying to get to bed earlier, caffeine can be a major roadblock in keeping you up.

Get Moving

When you are tired it is pretty hard to put any thought into exercising. However, it has been shown that a little bit of exercise will raise your energy level. So get moving! It doesn’t have to be a tough, sweaty workout – a nice brisk walk will do the trick.

When it comes to supporting sleep, exercise has been shown to improve you ability to sleep at night.

Avoid Late-Night Wireless Devices

In the days leading up to daylight savings, you should begin to put your phone away an hour earlier than normal. Sources of wireless internet, such as your phones, drain your brain and body of energy. Your body has to fight against the wireless internet to maintain its energetic position. Furthermore, the EMF emitted from devices using wireless internet, puts a drain on your central nervous system

“Computerized devices draw energy from you.”
Anthony William, Brain Saver

Being well-prepared will help you transition into daylight savings time with ease. Gradually adjust your sleep time, bring in energizing adrenal snacks throughout the day, avoid the pitfalls of caffeine and alcohol, start exercising, and avoid late-night screen time. The blue light can truly mess with your mind.

While this may take a little adjusting, these tips will help you get the sleep you need and allow your body to naturally transition into “fall back” mode. The best part is, implementing these tips will benefit your sleep all year round!

To your health & happiness,
Muneeza
