It is that time of year where we spring forward to darker mornings but lighter evenings.

On Sunday March 11, 2018, we will be moving our clocks ahead an hour for Daylight Savings Time. Losing that hour of sleep is a lot harder for people to adjust to. Car accidents and work place mistakes typically increase as people get used to their new sleep schedules. It is best to start preparing for that a few days before hand by getting to bed a little earlier. When you wake up, make sure you are surrounded by plenty of natural light.

"Light will suppress the melatonin which is produced in our body," says Dr. Sarat Kuchipudi, director of the Sleep Center at Lima Memorial. "That's why when you get up in the morning, make sure to expose to light. Light will help you to stay awake."

Dr. Kuchipudi also says exercising early can help wake your body up.
