The Monday after we spring ahead for Daylight Saving Time is the worst Monday of the year for accidents. On average in North America we can expect 195 motor vehicle deaths and 171 pedestrian fatalities this Monday! So here’s 3 tips to deal with the transition:
1. Cut out caffeine. Make sure you don’t have any caffeine at least six hours before bed. It’s a good rule of thumb in general, but especially important this weekend.
2. No alcohol either. Even just one drink can disturb your sleep. So skip the alcohol tomorrow night if you can.
3. Eat light. Don’t eat anything for at least two or three hours before you plan to go to bed. Otherwise it can interfere with the quality of your sleep.
