Daylight Saving Time is happening across the U.S. and Canada this weekend, and although many welcome the lighter evenings, the initial hour change can disrupt sleep as we settle into a new pattern. The result can be feelings of fatigue, mood problems and slower reaction times according to Vanderbilt Sleep Disorders Center, with previous studies showing an increase in traffic accidents, workplace injuries, and even heart attacks in the days following the shift to daylight saving time.
So to remember to try and maximize your sleep quality to wake up with a spring in your step on these new lighter mornings.
