Don't just suddenly change up your normal sleep routine — give your body some time to get used to it. Start moving up your regular bedtime a few days before the Daylight Saving Time switch, adjusting it in increments as you near the date. If you used 15-minute increments, you will be done adjusting in just four days. Make sure you don't skimp on sleep before or after the switch, as you may have a harder time adjusting.
Bright idea: Resist the urge the nap — it is after all, a dangerous game! According to the National Sleep Foundation, napping, especially later in the day, will only make it longer for you to find the right bedtime. A nap — shorter than 20 minutes — may be beneficial, but it is best to stick it out for the day.
