Are You Ready For Daylight Savings Time?

This weekend marks the time of year that most all of us hate.  It’s time to set our clocks forward an hour.

On Sunday March 10th at 2 a.m. our clocks will spring forward an hour and it will become 3 a.m.  This will give us the perception that there is more daylight available at the end of each work day and even start a few of us venturing into the great outdoors when the weather isn’t threatening or too cold.

On the down side of the time change, all of us will be losing an hour of sleep that we have become accustomed to from our daily routines.  So, come Monday we will all be out of sync, being that we’ll lose an hour of our precious sleep.

Is there any way to prepare for the time adjustment and not become a groggy beast when we all return to work on Monday, March 11th?  Or worse and avoid being that person who is late to work on Monday after the time change!

The answer is yes and here’s how.

Starting on tonight – make it a nightly ritual over the next 4 nights to go to bed and wake up 15 minutes earlier than you did the day before.  It’s that simple and you’ll thank me for it on Monday of next week!

For this adjustment to take place, Tonight night you’ll need to go to bed at  - say for example – 10:45 p.m. instead of 11 p.m.  Thursday morning, instead of waking up at 7 a.m., wake up at 6:45 a.m.  Then do the same thing each night going forward towards this weekends time shift, ex: 10:30 p.m. on Thursday night with a 6:30 a.m. Friday wake up and continue to go to bed 15 minutes earlier each day following.

When the clocks make the time change on Sunday morning, you’ll actually be on the new schedule and ready to face the week, instead of being that person that everyone will be trying to avoid.
