Here are some tips to help with the time change and sleep troubles in general:
Go to sleep a half-hour earlier than usual tonight and wake up a half hour earlier.
Expose yourself to outdoor or indoor light. If you have serious sleep problems, consider purchasing a blue light used to combat winter sadness. The lights can help adjust the body’s internal clock that helps regulate sleep. • Don’t eat or exercise within two hours of bedtime.
• If you need a daytime nap, limit it to 30 minutes.
• Before bed, take a warm bath; listen to soothing music; do light reading, but stay away from a page-turner that could keep you up.
• Avoid alcohol. It may help you get to sleep, but it truncates it.
• Use the bedroom for sleeping and intimacy, not TV watching, video games or Internet surfing.
