How Daylight Saving Time Can Effect Your Body
On Sunday, we will all be losing an hour of sleep, but we will be gaining some afternoon sunshine, so I guess it will even out. However, your body may not adjust to the new schedule as quickly and easily as you might hope it would.
Your brain definitely falls out of sync with the change of time. The melatonin production gets all screwy when you start seeing the sunrise and sunset at new and different times. This sudden shift can really be rough on your body.
It can take up to a week to adjust to the Daylight Saving Time change, so it won't be surprising if you're feeling extra groggy the whole next week.
It is definitely annoying that this happens twice a year, but knowing that spring is now right around the corner feels so, so good. It's hopefully going to get warmer and brighter soon enough!
