Spring is almost here, and with it comes daylight savings time change. Sure, we get more sunlight, but losing an hour of sleep can really throw off our internal clocks, leaving us feeling tired and sluggish for days. But fear not, because I’ve got some tips to help you avoid daylight savings burnout and keep your energy levels up during this transition.
Start preparing early
The key to avoiding feeling sluggish when daylight savings hits is to start preparing a few days before the change. Gradually shift your sleep schedule by going to bed 15 minutes earlier each night for a few days leading up to the time change. This will help your body adjust to the new schedule and make the transition smoother.

Stick to a routine
Maintaining a consistent routine is essential for keeping your energy levels up. Try to wake up and go to bed at the same time every day, even on weekends. This will help regulate your body’s internal clock and prevent you from feeling tired and groggy.
Exercise is a great way to boost your energy levels and combat fatigue. Aim to get at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day, whether it’s a brisk walk, a yoga sesh in the MOVE app, or a dance party in your living room. You can also use MOVE to track your outdoor workouts when the sun stays out a little longer.
And if you need an extra boost, I can’t recommend Pep Rally enough. It’s packed with energy-boosting ingredients like green tea, ginseng, and maca root to help you power through your day.
Take care of yourself
Finally, don’t forget to take care of yourself during this transition. Make sure you’re eating well, drinking plenty of water, and taking breaks throughout the day to stretch and relax. And if you’re still feeling tired, don’t be afraid to take a power nap. Just make sure it’s no longer than 20 minutes, so you don’t disrupt your sleep schedule.
So there you have it, ladies! Remember, preparation is key, and taking care of yourself is essential. Here’s to a smooth transition into daylight savings time!
