Dealing with Daylight-Saving Time

Daylight-saving time is much like jet lag -- "the older you are, the more difficulty you will have," says Dennis H. Nicholson, MD, director of Sleep Disorders Center at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center in California. "It will take one to two days to reprogram."

Good "sleep hygiene" helps with the re-programming:

Don't eat a heavy meal before bedtime.
Don't drink a lot of caffeine or alcohol.
Don't nap during the day, or at least keep it brief -- 10 to 15 minutes.
Stop working on any task an hour before bedtime to calm down.
Don't discuss emotional issues at bedtime.
Make sure your sleep environment is comfortable.
Don't turn lights on at night. Use a small night-light instead.
