Daylight Savings Time: Sleep Tips

Updated: Apr 22




Who is ready to SPRING FORWARD?☀️🦋🌸


This is an exciting, yet dreaded day for many families with young children. We lose an hour of sleep (yuck), but we get more sunlight at the end of the day (yay)! 🌞


WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO HELP MY FAMILY ADJUST?

▪️My favorite approach: DO NOTHING. Don't make changes. Keep your sanity! After a few days, everyone will be well-adjusted

▪️Be consistent: Don't make too many changes, as children truly thrive off of a consistent schedule (We all do!)

▪️Blackout curtains: The bright sunlight can interrupt sleep. A dark room can promote better sleep habits and longer sleep times.

Good luck and don't forget to change your clocks!!⏰
