What Losing An Hour Of Sleep Can Do To Your Internal Clock
The switch to Daylight Saving Time (DST) this weekend means most of us will lose an hour of sleep Saturday night. While that doesn't seem like much more than an inconvenience, that slight change can affect our internal clocks, making it more difficult to fall asleep, and to wake up on time. It may take several days for some people to adjust and get their sleep routines back on track.
Joining us to discuss how the time change can affect our internal clocks and how to get a good night's sleep is University of Cincinnati College of MedicineAssociate Professor of Internal Medicine and Director of the UC Medical Center Sleep Medicine Center, Dr. Ann Romaker.
