‘Spring forward’ for Daylight Saving Time this weekend

Even one hour of a time shift can make it harder to wake up and fall asleep on a set schedule.

“If you’re able to make small, incremental changes in your sleep and wake times for a few days leading up to the start of Daylight Saving Time, rather than making an abrupt change of a full hour, it can ease that transition,” says Anita Shelgikar, M.D., from the Michigan Medicine Sleep Disorders Centers.

Shelgikar hopes Daylight Saving Time will eventually be a relic from the past. She says there is growing support for the idea that we should not be switching clocks twice per year.
