Use Daylight-saving Change to Practice Healthy Sleep Habits

Ah, daylight-saving time. An extra hour to enjoy life outside. An extra hour to stay up late. And an hour less to sleep// .

What should we do when the clock jukes and jives with our circadian rhythms, those biological waves that regulate our sleep?

It’s bad enough for adults, who understand the concept. What about kids, who will want to squeeze out every last drop of sunshine? The sun’s still up, how can it be bedtime?

Dr. Maha Alattar, assistant professor of neurology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine, is available to talk about tips for getting our bodies back on track and easing the transition for children.

The time change affords an opportunity to learn about, and practice, sound sleep habits, Alattar says. “They can be for every day, not just twice a year.”

Among Alattar’s suggestions:

* Most importantly, don’t resort to medications just to adjust to daylight-saving time. “This is a transitory period. Most people adjust within a few days.”
* Wake up at your regular time, according to the clock. Even though 6 a.m. will be 7 a.m., stay on your schedule.
* Get a dose of sunshine in the morning to quickly reset circadian rhythms. Sunlight is most the powerful regulator.
* Don’t drink caffeine after 10 a.m. or lunchtime.
* Don’t take a nap; work through the sluggishness until bedtime.
* Avoid a heavy meal three hours before bed.
* End your exercise routine at least three to four hours before bedtime.
* Take a warm shower or bath before bed.
Many of these techniques hold true for kids – basically, increase outdoor activities during the day and curtail outside play and inside activities, including computer work, close to bedtime.

* Let kids eat breakfast outside; if it’s too cold, set them beside a window.
* End playtime a couple of hours before bedtime.
* Turn off the computer two hours b
