OSU Doctor: How to Adjust Body Clock for Time Change
COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- As central Ohioans readjust the clocks in their homes and vehicles for the end of Daylight Savings Time, an OSU researcher wants to make sure they are able to properly adjust their bodies' clocks as well.
The extra hour of sleep many Americans will relish on Sunday will only lead to more rested feelings on Monday if they make smart choices before and during bedtime, according to Dr. Meena Khan of The Ohio State University's Wexner Medical Center.
Khan recommends that central Ohioans take the following steps to ensure they get the most out of the extra sleep time:
- Sleep in a quiet, dark environment.
- Avoid exposure to artificial light before, and during sleep.
- Follow a consistent sleep schedule.
- Be highly active during the day.
