Warning - Time Warp Ahead!

November 04, 2022

That time is here again! Twice a year, we adjust our clocks and disrupt sleeping patterns, work schedules, and the balance of our day. Even though it’s only an hour, adjusting the clocks for Daylight Savings Time each year is always a tough transition. Just a one-hour shift messes with our body’s natural clock and temporarily upsets even the most fine-tuned routines!

Need some extra help fine-tuning your financial routine?

Simple Tips for the Time Shift

Enjoy the Lighter Mornings. Allow the natural light in at the start of each day to help naturally sync with your normal wake time.

Stick to your regular schedule. At least in the beginning...Use the extra hour to start an exercise routine or even just catch up on all those unread emails!

Create a calming bedtime routine. Even though you won't feel as sleepy in the evening according to what the clock says, turn off electronics (yes, even phones) 30 minutes before bed and relax or read. Try not to stay up too late!

Avoid caffeine and alcohol. To ensure the sleep is high quality, avoid foods and drinks with caffeine or alcohol at least four hours before bed.

Hopefully, these tips will help keep productivity levels high and make the transition a bit easier. As always, feel free to forward these tips to anyone who might benefit from them as well!

Enjoy the extra hour this weekend!
