Focus on sleep health at daylight saving time

By Logan Lafferty

Spring ahead. It’s what we do every year when we advance our clocks one hour for daylight saving time. To help your body clock adjust, sleep specialists at Mayo Clinic Health System advocate getting exposure to strong light in the morning. "To help your body function better throughout the day and to stay healthier, make a commitment to getting eight hours of sleep each night," said Dr. Jack Alexander, chief medical officer at Mayo Clinic Health System in Cannon Falls, Lake City and Red Wing.
