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!
