Tick, tock: Spring forward on the clock

The extra hours of daylight may have the birds chirping, but that doesn’t mean you are.

Daylight Saving Time is here, and while your brain knows it’s lost an hour, your body doesn’t – which is why you may have hit the snooze button more than usual this morning.

Here are 5 tips on how to ease into the time change:

  • Avoid a lot of caffeine and alcohol before going to bed.
  • Get some exercise midday and try to avoid exercise too late in the day.
  • Unplug – put away phones, iPads and computers to help your brain shut off.
  • Don’t eat a heavy meal right before bedtime.
  • The Cleveland Clinic suggests prepping a few days early by going to bed 15 to 30 minutes earlier than usual.
