Get ready for Daylight Saving Time!

I’ve got a plan to help me deal with daylight saving time, and it works. The week before I start eating up to one hour later in the evening. When I “fall back”, I will be essentially eating one hour later, and doing this a week early minimizes the shift for my “over all sleep rhythm”.

Here’s a picture to help visualize the shift:

Note the shift on Saturday. Time shifts earlier, and my body stays the same.

Next week, I will plan to have a little more coffee in the evening because I’ll be tired earlier. It will probably take three weeks for this to go away. I’ve found I can adjust my sleep by 15 minutes one way or the other a week, but no more. I just won’t sleep. So, the only solution is to plan for it, and know I will wake up one hour earlier.

I hope this helps you too.

P.S. Yes, it’s Daylight Saving Time without an s.

P.P.S I’ve written about Day Light Saving Time before here, an here.

Success! You're on the list.
