Handle Time Change Properly to Avoid Fatigue
It is time for a time change as we are springing forward at 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning, but it could cause havoc with your sleep.
Yakima Memorial Hospital’s Dr. Susan Rausch says there is no need to make any changes in sleeping patterns.
Your biological clock likes that predictability. If you are more active on Sunday you will have a better chance of getting to sleep Sunday night.
Dr. Rausch says for those who love caffeine in the form of coffee or chocolate it is recommended to stop consumption by noon Sunday to make sure you get enough sleep.
The doctor also says anyone who may suffer from sleep apnea, now is a good time for treatment to help save your life.
