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.

Adults require seven to eight hours of sleep each night and teens require even more, but few of us actually get that much on a consistent basis. Busy schedules can get in the way, but for many a lack of sleep is due to other problems.
