Here’s How Daylight Saving Time Affects Your Health!

Daylight Saving Time ended at 2 a.m. on November 1st.

This means we gained a full hour of sleep.

A recent study from the University of Colorado says that when clocks are moved up, the effect has a negative impact on our health.

According to the study, heart attack risk increases by 25% due to the loss of sleep.

The risk drops 21% in the fall when we gain an hour of sleep.

The Mayo Clinic adds that daylight saving affects sleeping patterns for nearly a week.

To help remedy that, the Better Sleep Council has a tip. The nonprofit says to go to sleep 15 minutes before your normal bedtime days before the shift.
