Daylight Saving Time Is Soon—Here’s How to Manage Exhaustion

03.05.2021 — The Frenshe Editors

It’s that special time of year again. And no, I am not talking about a semi-annual sale or awards season, but Daylight Saving Time.  It begins the second Sunday in March, so make sure to move your clocks ahead an hour at 2 a.m. PST on March 14th. What’s interesting about Daylight Saving Time is it is regionally, so it may not affect us all because not all states observe DST. But for those who it does affect, one hour can throw you off your sleep routine several days to even weeks. Incidences of exhaustion statistically have occurred during DST so, if you feel restless after adjusting your sleep routine, ahead are some apps that will aid you to your best sleep life.

Tide

Having a healthy sleep routine and not experiencing constant insomnia is a luxury most of us take for granted. We live in a “team no sleep” generation, but we fail to realize lack of sleep can encourage a lack of focus. And once we lose focus on a multitude of things it can affect our routine, mood, and overall life. Lack of focus most commonly results in a lack of sleep. The Tide app integrates tools that support both relaxation and focus to help you rest at your best. There are tools offered such as meditation, breathing exercises, and timers for immersed concentration. There is no better way to easily fall asleep than when you feel focused and relaxed once it is time for bed.
