• Go outside early Saturday and Sunday morning.
• If you don’t have a pre-existing health condition, exercise outdoors, but not after 4 p.m. which can disrupt sleep later.
• Refrain from napping over the weekend.
• Avoid alcohol on Sunday night. While it might knock you out, alcohol disrupts sleep patterns.
• Eat a healthy, substantial breakfast Monday morning to provide you with energy to get through the day.
Children need help adjusting to the time change as well. Jennifer Chambers, MD, of the University of Alabama suggests serving dinner 30 minutes earlier to help reset their schedule. She also recommends against letting kids sleep late Sunday morning, the first day of the time change.
