Health Tips for Daylight Saving Time
Posted March 8th, 2014 @ 5:10pm by KFBK News

We're likely to feel the effect of losing an hour of sleep this weekend.

While some feel nothing more than mildly sleepy on Sunday and Monday, others find the time change taking a toll on their mood and productivity.

If you're looking for a way to ease the transition try eating dinner earlier on Saturday evening in an effort to go to bed earlier and go to bed at your usual time on Sunday evening.

Kaiser Permanente's Dr. Swapna Parikh also suggests using the extra evening sunlight to your advantage by taking a walk or riding your bike.

Board Certified in Sleep Medicine, Dr. Parikah also recommends avoiding a big meal too late in the day and staying off the computer close to bedtime.
