Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday morning, prompting our clocks to spring ahead by one hour.
While the extra daylight in the evening is a welcome change, for some the time shift can disrupt their natural sleep cycle.
Sleep consultant Alanna McGinn, of goodnightsleepsite.com, offered up a few tips while speaking to CP24 on Saturday afternoon.
“Tonight try to go to bed a bit early to try to combat that hour loss of sleep,” she said.
“Tomorrow try to wake up at the same time.”
McGinn said it is important to get into natural light as soon as you get up.
“The natural light is what helps sync our rhythms best so it is what is going to help wake up our body. A good nutritious breakfast will do the same,” she said.
“Open up the blinds, get outside and start syncing and resetting your biological clock.”
