How to survive the sleep deprivation caused by Daylight Saving Time

Monday morning coffeeThe upcoming change to daylight saving time (DST) will make people feel like they’ve lost an hour of sleep.
At 2am this coming Sunday morning, March 12, we are expected to “spring” our clocks one hour “forward.” This synchs our shared schedules to an artificial time reset.
The practice originally evolved to build more sunlight into the work day for the purposes of productivity and safety.
However, sleep deprivation caused by DST has since become the result of that infamous “law of unintended consequences,” with risks to both productivity and safety an ironic negative outcome.

  2. Thank you for the article. One of the things that I've learned when I was trying to lose weight is that sleep deprivation affects food cravings the following day. I tried the military diet and in addition to the low carb meal plans, the site recommends having adequate sleep since this affects eating satiety. It's the little things that add up to weight gain - things you hardly notice. For my case, it also included the use of condiments. Some are really packed with sugar and sodium!
