Daylight Savings

Students walking on campus 

November 01, 2018

Daylight savings is coming to an end. Therefore, this means you will get an extra hour of sleep which may be beneficial or might not. The clocks will "fall back" and gain an hour. Here are some tips to help you adjust with the time change.

Managing your sleeping schedule is very important. It is best to always stick to the same routine, that being getting the 7-9 hours of sleep. Having to move the clocks back an hour will make it tempting to stay up longer; however, if your body sticks to the similar schedule your body should adjust within time. If you decide to stay up longer and your body is not used to it you will struggle with waking up early. It is also important to not drink any caffeine and exercise before bed.

Another beneficial tip is to put away your device at least an hour before bed. Mornings will be darker which means there will be early evenings. It will darker outside in the evening, so make sure to always be aware, and use proper clothing/lights if you are walking/riding your bike on campus. Make sure to go as often as you can outside to get some sunlight. Daylight savings coming to an end may be hard for some of us to adjust or might be something natural.
