For years, we’ve had to adjust to the clock springing forward or falling back. There are ways to make that change easier on yourself.

According to WebMD writer Michael J. Breus, PhD, there are several things you can do.

Light affects melatonin production, so it’s important to get exposure to light in the early part of the day, but to avoid bright light when it’s dark out.

Create sleep-friendly spaces. That will help you to fall asleep and stay asleep. To do this, avoid caffeine and alcohol, and try exercising a few hours before your bedtime. Adding ear plugs and/or eye masks can help, too.
