Daylight Saving Time goes into effect in a couple of hours, in most of the U.S. For overseas readers who may not have DST: In the Fall, we gain one hour; at the specified hour, say 3:00 am, it is suddenly 2:00 am. In the Spring, we lose an hour; at 2:00 am today, it will suddenly be 3:00 am. I can easily adjust to the Fall Back, but have a really hard time adjusting to the Spring Forward. My body clock is always really messed up, but Spring Forward makes it worse. I still wake up on the Fall schedule. Does anyone have any suggestions, tips, advice for how to better adjust? What hasn't worked for this or for my generally out-of-whack body clock: Good sleep hygiene. Darkness Therapy (sitting in a dark room makes my insomnia worse) Turning off TV, computer, stopping other activities (makes my insomnia worse) Taking my sleep medications an hour earlier. (I do this, but my body clock stays on Fall time. I still wake up at the old Fall time, which is now an hour later). Mindfulness meditation (helps other symptoms, but not this one) Forcing myself to get up an hour earlier (I feel groggy, jet-lagged and sleepy all day) I can't try new herbs or medications right now due to a variety of factors. But, I may be able to tolerate an herbal tea if it's super-gentle on the stomach. But, I can't have chamomile tea because it's not recommended for people who have ragweed allergies. Things like valerian are probably too strong right now. I also can't go back to a sleep doc right now, because of the current severity of my ME/CFS. Is there something in my routine I can change? Or something I can add to my routine? Something I can change in my environment? My hours are already so out-of-whack, I'd love for them not to get one more hour out-of-whack. A recent article in WAPO debunked some of the most popular myths/benefits of Daylight Saving Time. Really eye-opening. This is my first new thread. I hope it's in the right forum.
