Spring Forward Coping Tips

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Florida Network Realty BK 3030920


■ Take a short nap in the afternoon for about 20 minutes if you can.

■ Exercise during the day with moderate walks or working out at a gym.

■ Commit to at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep at night.

■ Avoid caffeine or alcohol before bed.

■ Avoid eating at least two to three hours before going to bed.

■ Relax before going to bed with a hot bath or shower, read a book or listen to soothing music.

■ Make sure your bedroom is cool and free of noisy distractions such as televisions, radios or other noise.

■ Make sure your mattress and pillows are comfortable and offer support. If they’re not comfortable, it may be time to purchase new ones.

I am leaving for the gym right now--my regular time. Not really looking forward to it, but I figure that it might help me cope!

Great tips Carol. I hate 'spring ahead'. I love 'fall back' so much more!!

Good advice for all of us.  Getting the needed exercise and eating properly is a challenge for many.

Getting up and at 'em today was definitely a challenge.  But I am very much looking forward to having a bit more daylight in the evening.
