Daylight Saving Time Symptoms

WICHITA FALLS, TX -

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) say it can take about one full week for the body to adjust for sleeping, eating, and activity changes after setting your clocks back for Daylight Saving Time (DST). We spoke with Doctor Micha Boyer of The Clinics of North Texas in Wichita Falls.

"People can kind of feel tired earlier or not able to go to sleep," said Doctor Boyer.

What you gain for one day in an hour of sleep you lose in keeping control of a normal sleep cycle that Doctor Boyer says in crucial to personal health. While life might be feeling a little different now following DST Doctor Boyer said that there are multiple ways you can help get your mind and body back on track.

"If it is during the day if it is lunch go for a walk get some sunlight other things to kind of just be aware of is go ahead and get your sleep schedule re-adjusted," said Doctor Boyer.

Doctor Boyer said that exercise can be a great tool to help lower depression, mood, emotional, sleeping, and potential dietary problems that might have been thrown off while adjusting to DST. Doctor Boyer recommends that Texomans increase activity to decrease the chance of developing unhealthy habits.

"You kind of get this bored eating, or you're just more on the couch, or you're watching TV more often, or you're just not as active. So, you do end up eating a little bit more also if you're more tired or mood is affected that could change their diet as well," said Doctor Boyer.
