3 Tips To Thrive Through Daylight SavingsBy Katrina Scott on
Morning gorgeous! Daylight savings is coming up this weekend ☀️ The good news: we’re “falling back,” so we get an extra hour of sleep (SO helpful the day after Halloween)!
The catch: The change can mess with our circadian rhythm, causing fatigue, mood changes, and extra cravings. Research shows that people tend to lose sleep overall during the fall transition time. And you know how important sleep is to regulate stress, appetite, and mood!
Try these simple tips to adjust to Daylight Savings quickly and energize your beautiful body.
Get a head start
Every day this week, head to bed about 15 minutes earlier than your usual time. By the time the clock jumps back this weekend, your bod will be adjusted and ready to go. Plus, extra sleep never hurts 💤
Get your workouts in
A good sweat sesh in your TIU app will help you adjust to the time change and sleep better overall. Exercising at the same time every day can also keep your sleep-wake cycle working optimally, so mark your calendar and make your workout dates consistent!
Let the sunshine in
Your body’s sleep-wake cycle follows the sun. Getting sunlight first thing in the morning will energize you because light suppresses production of the sleep hormone melatonin. So rise, shine, and get your cute booty outside for a morning stroll! Even if you’re just pulling back your curtains and peeking out, you want to get as much natural light as you can in the morning!
