Sleeptober and Daylight Savings!

Screen shot 2013-10-03 at 12.14.43 AM

We are launching Sleeptober! Throughout this month, we are taking advantage of Sleep Awareness Week (6th – 12th October 2013) by the Sleep Health Foundation and raising awareness of students and your sleep. We always put Sleep last and a little birdy told us that Sleep is not too happy about that. Sleep wants our attention and wants to be the first to be picked for a game. C’mon guys, give Sleep a chance!

 

Daylight savings begins 6 October at 2am! That’s this Sunday! Move your clocks FORWARD for an extra hour of daylight!

Remember though, like jet lag to a change in time zones when travelling, our bodies also need adjusting to during daylight savings, a sort of “daylight ag” if you will.

How to prepare?

Go to bed an hour earlier. Avoid sugary, caffeinated drinks beforehand and you could even get in a few exercise routines in during the day so you are tired and will easily fall asleep at this earlier time.

 

Good luck and don’t forget to wind your clocks forward!

  1. I can’t agree more with you. Young people like us tend to put sleep last and that’s really not good for our bodies in the long run. I never used to sleep before 2 with uni and a part time job. Now that i have more of my own time, and avoid drinking sugary drinks and putting in an exercise routine or two now and then, i do feel a difference. Thanks, great blog!!

    • haha! Some of us realised that and made sure to get ahead of ourselves and pop up a blog before we made that mistake! daylight savings!

  2. Wow I just came to the realisation that I’ve been doing the daylight savings thing wrong all this time haha. I always assumed that my body will naturally be able to adjust over time to the time change…and then again when the time comes to change the clocks again. I always go through a terrible week of lethargic days and sleepless nights afterwards…thanks for this!
