How Do Time Changes Affect Your Sleep?

Time changes can be some of the most annoying aspects of what we accept as a society. Daylight savings time has been an issue for many people during the half-century that it has been utilized and benefits only a small number of people. Changing the time every 6 months or so can cause serious problems with your circadian rhythm. As soon as you get comfortable with a set bed time, it suddenly changes. Some people take months before they are comfortable enough with their sleep schedule to start feeling rested after sleep. Fortunately, we have some information pertaining to this issue from the sleep expert himself, Jeremy D McConnell.
