DST Part 2!


We return to Keith Fridel’s Ph.D. article on tips to help us spring forward. Check out the 6 tips below!

1. Go to bed a bit earlier – be kind to your future self by starting your nighttime routine a couple minutes. It can also be helpful to turn your clocks forward the day before

2. Be consistent – wake up at the same time to keep that sleep cycle regular (even on the weekends).

3. Enjoy the longer evenings – get out and enjoy that sunshine! Did you know that sunshine helps naturally reset your body clock?

4. Exercise – helps you sleep better and feel better!

5. Be mindful of what you eat and drink – eat dinner a bit earlier in the evening to give your digestion system some time to digest all that yummy food before going to bed

6. Reduce screen time – try to get off of screens 2 hours before bed to decrease the blue light that stimulates your brain
