It's that time of year again; time for you to set your clocks back by an hour.
Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday morning at 2am. Now you might think that since we are falling back, we will get an extra hour of sleep. Dr. Erin Richardson told KTRH News that would be a wrong assumption to make.
"This shift in the sleep that we have affects our body's natural clock for about a week after the shift takes place. It actually results in a negative net effect," Richardson explained.
She says if you want to avoid having your sleep disturbed, you should have already been preparing for a few days.
"Try to push your bedtime forward by about fifteen minutes. If you're still having trouble, the best things to do are sleep habits like avoiding blue light and TV before bed," Richardson stated.
There was an effort earlier this year in the Texas Legislature to make DST all year round, but that failed to pass.
