Tips & Tricks: Beat the Daylight Saving Time Blues


The weather is getting colder and the days are getting shorter. With daylight saving time, we go back an hour and gain an extra hour of sleep, however the earlier sunset often leaves us feeling tired and unmotivated by the evening hours. Below are three recommendations we have for beating the daylight saving time blues.


1. Plan your evenings
The sun may set sooner, but that doesn’t mean the day is over just yet. Curling up on the couch as soon as you come home from work can lead to hours of wasted time over the week that could have been put to working towards your individual goals. Whether it’s exercising, working on a personal project, or spending time with family, try setting a schedule for your evenings and sticking to it – you may even find that evenings are the perfect time to get things done regardless of sunlight.

2. Change up your surroundings
Less natural sunlight in the evening may affect your mood and make you feel groggy and ready to crawl into bed by 6:00 p.m. To help brighten your spirits and feel more energized, fill your home with the things you love. Whether it’s a vase full of fresh flowers, new wall décor, or pictures of your loved ones, surrounding yourself with the things that fill you with joy will help lift your spirits.

3. Focus on your wellbeing
Tweaking your diet to make it healthier and adding in some exercise can do wonders for your mood and overall wellbeing. During a season where we’re already stressing out and feeling blue, it is more important than ever to get your healthy habits going. Why wait until the new year to start feeling better when you can start now?
