On Sunday, Canadians will be turning their clocks backward one hour to mark the end of Daylight Saving Time. It heralds the beginning shift into shorter daylight hours and a cooler season. On average, people can require a week to adjust to the time change.
Being tired can decrease productivity, concentration, and general well-being.

Here are some ways to make the clock change easier:

  • Eat a healthy breakfast first thing. Food tells your body it is the start of the day.
  • Increase your exposure to sunlight and physical activity during the day until late afternoon/early evening to help with the reduction of daylight hours.
  • Help your child adjust by putting him or her to bed a little bit earlier the week before the time change.
  • Drivers should be extra alert — pull over if you’re driving and feel drowsy. The only cure for sleepiness is sleep.
  • Use this weekend as an opportunity to make home safety checks. Check and replace batteries in home smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
