Fall Back From Daylight Saving & Save Your Sleep Schedule

Get enough shut-eye as daylight  saving  ends.  

It's that time of year again. The nights are closing in, the temperatures are dropping, and we ready our clocks to be turned back. While most of us welcome the opportunity for more sleep, the end of daylight  saving  can throw a lot of people off their sleep schedule. Their body clock is disrupted, causing them to suffer from drowsiness and stress. While it is often easier to go back an hour rather than forward, the slight shift can take a while for people to adjust.Daylight  saving  ends on November 6th, 2016. Use these tips to get ready and steady your sleep schedule!Stick to a routine €¯' A sleep schedule with a fixed bedtime and wake up time will create consistency, which is important when trying to sync your body's natural sleep cycle. Wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends!Turn a light on when you wake up €¯' Light is an important cue that tells the body and mind to wake up. When daylight  saving  ends, we start to wake up in the dark. Furthermore, it's harder to get out of bed when it's pitch black outside. Turning on a light as soon as you wake up will help to €˜wake you up.'Avoid TV before bed ' €¯Avoid stimulating the mind by watching television, playing video games, or using the computer before you head to bed. These activities engage your brain, making it harder to fall asleep.Adopt a calming routine ' €¯Getting your mind and body into a relaxed state an hour or so before bedtime can help to get a better night's sleep and overcome the end of daylight savings. Whether you drink chamomile tea, take a bath, or read a book, unwinding after a long day will help you in more ways than one!Watch what you drink €¯' Limit caffeine and alcohol consumption. Caffeine is a stimulant and will keep you awake, while alcohol reduces your sleep quality.Most importantly, remember to set your clocks back the night before! Otherwise, you'll start the season on a disorientated start!From the insurance professionals, we hope that you have a peaceful end to daylight  saving!
