Working out or going for an early morning walk will release serotonin, a chemical that helps our mood. Why not make the most of that “extra” hour in the morning by getting your daily exercise done early? Leaving it too late in the day can impact on the quality of your sleep.
Alcohol can play havoc with normal sleep cycles, so avoid using it as a sleep aide in the evenings and help your body adapt. The same thing, goes for caffeine, obviously.
With the clocks changing, there’s a chance you may be hungry earlier or later than usual. Make sure you take this into account and avoid going to bed with a full stomach - yes, that will interfere with the quality of your beauty sleep too.
Get your circadian rhythm on track by using the right combination of light and darkness. Open those curtains early in the morning to make the most of the extra sunlight, and avoid screens before bed so your body knows it’s time to wind down.
Yes, unless you are very organised, you have missed the chance to jump on board with this tip, but there’s always a chance to action it come September. Reduced disruption to your working week by resetting one of your clocks a few days before everyone else - say Friday or Saturday - and eat, sleep and wake according to that clock. When Monday rolls around, you’ll be one step ahead of everyone else.
