Daylight savings starts Sunday 31st of March. But are you like us, that can never remember which way to turn the clock?
At 2:00am Sunday morning, most phones and computers will automatically shift an hour forward, and we'll get an hour less of sleep.
Even though the clocks change by only an hour during Daylight Savings Time, the effects can be noticeable, especially if you’re already sleep-deprived. Almost like with jet lag your body’s internal clock may be thrown slightly off course, which can affect you. In addition, you now get lighter evenings and darker mornings, which doesn't help. So how to best deal with it?
It shouldn't take more than a few days to adjust. But you could speed up the process by planning ahead. If you prepare for losing that hour of sleep by going to bed 15 to 20 minutes earlier than usual each night in the days leading up to the time change it might just run a lot smoother. Or simply top to bed a little earlier on the night of the time change to try to recover some of that lost sleep. Try also to sleep in for an extra half hour on the Sunday morning after the clocks change and expose yourself to sunlight early in the morning if possible.
So too round it up...
