As we spring forward and change our clocks, it’s important to also take a moment to prioritize our health and safety.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
Get plenty of rest: Changing the clocks can disrupt our sleep schedules, so make sure to get enough rest in the days leading up to and following the time change.
Check your smoke detectors: Use this opportunity to check the batteries in your smoke detectors and make sure they’re functioning properly.
Be mindful of medication schedules: If you take medication on a strict schedule, the time change can throw things off. Be sure to consult with your healthcare provider on how to adjust your medication schedule accordingly.
Stay hydrated: With warmer weather on the horizon, it’s important to stay hydrated. Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day.
Watch for signs of depression: Changing the clocks can be a difficult adjustment for some, so keep an eye out for signs of depression or other mood changes. If you’re struggling, don’t hesitate to reach out to a healthcare professional.
Remember, small adjustments can make a big difference when it comes to your health and safety. Let’s all take care of ourselves as we spring forward into a new season!
