The clocks moved forward this past weekend bringing us into Daylight Saving time. It’s great your kids get an extra hour of daylight after school, but the down side is there are definite health aspects to be aware of!
It’s stressful on your body to start the day when it’s still programmed to be sleeping! Studies show an increase in heart attacks the Monday after Daylight Saving time goes into effect. There is an increase in car accidents, our stress levels can be higher, it can truly be a Manic Monday!
To offset the time-change stress, these 3 important steps help re-set your inner body clock:
1. EAT A GOOD BREAKFAST,
2. EXPOSE YOURSELF TO LIGHT IN THE MORNING,
3. INCREASE YOUR MORNING ACTIVITY!T
Take it easy on yourself, and let me know how you do in the comments below!
