Sunday at 2 a.m. we move our clocks forward one hour for the start of Daylight Saving Time. 55% of Americans surveyed by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine say they feel tired after losing an hour of sleep.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine is offering these tips:
- Get at least seven hours of sleep a night before and after the time change to minimize adverse effects.
- Head outside Sunday morning – the sunlight will help regulate your internal clock
- For at least seven days after the time change, be careful when performing activities that require maximum alertness.
