Fall Back an Hour
It’s that time of year again! Time to set your clocks back an hour and enjoy an extra hour of sleep! This year, daylight savings time ends on Sunday, November 6th at 2:00 am.
That means that on Saturday, November 5th, you’ll need to set your clocks back an hour. But don’t worry, it’s easy to remember! Especially because most of our devices handle the time change for us. But we shouldn’t put all the responsibility on our devices, be sure to add it to your calendar and set your alarms as soon as you remember to.
Batteries do die out over-night, and some devices won’t update without internet connection so why chance it? Take an extra few minutes to ensure you don’t miss any appointments this daylights savings day and rest easy knowing you can comfortably enjoy the extra daylight in the evening.
Tips for All of Us
For many, the time change is nothing more than an annoyance. But for others, it can have a real impact on their mental-health and well-being. If you’re one of the latter, here are some tips to help you cope with the time change:
1. Get enough sleep.
This may seem like an obvious one, but it’s important to get enough sleep leading up to and following the time change. Most people need around 7-8 hours of sleep per night, so make sure you’re getting enough in the days and weeks leading up to daylight savings time.
2. Give yourself time to adjust.
It can take a few days for your body to adjust to the new time, so be patient. Especially because most people are not getting enough sleep in general. Take advantage of the extra hour and feel the difference it makes!
3. Get some exercise.
Exercise is a great way to combat fatigue and help your body adjust to the time change. Even a short walk around the block can make a big difference, literally anything can be better than nothing.
4. Drink plenty of water.
Staying hydrated is always important, but it’s especially important when your body is trying to adjust to a new time. Don’t make your body’s job harder, please allow it to have the hydration it needs to reorient your internal clock.
5. Avoid alcohol at first.
We all know that alcohol is pretty much a staple to most vacations, but alcohol can make it harder for your body to adjust to the time change and can also contribute to dehydration. So it’s best to avoid it in the days leading up to the time change. In the end you’re an adult and can make your own choices, just listen to your body and love yourself.
Try to relax and de-stress as much as possible in the days and weeks leading up to daylight savings time. Stress can make it harder for your body to adjust to the time change, which means this is a perfect time to practice your mindfulness. Take a moment breath and we’ll all be fine.
10. Be patient.
It can take a few days (or even a week or two) for your body to fully adjust to the time change. So be patient and give yourself time to adapt. We all want to be the best we can be at all times, but it’s important to remember we are only human. Some of us will move forward as if nothing changed. Others will struggle getting their day started. We each have our own path to walk, so keep your head up and love yourself.
