It's that time of year again, and that means people will be adjusting their clocks and be changing their sleep patterns when daylight savings time ends.
On the 1590 WAKR Ray Horner Morning Show earlier in the week, Dr. Erin Farrer, a sleep medical psychologist with Summa says it's not an easy task for some people.
"Although this time of year it's a little less daunting than springtime but the time change can still interfere with your natural rhythms," she said.
She says Circadian rhythms in people differ and that can throw off people's sleep patterns.
"Sometimes when we get on a pattern, the chemicals in our body tell us when to wake up and go to sleep and it can sometimes mess with people."
Dr. Farrer offers some tips that will help your body adjust to the time change
"Try to resist going to bed as early as you normally do just so you adjust to the changes, and if you do find yourself feeling sleepy earlier in the evening, try going for a brisk walk outside or try anything to keep yourself awake until you feel like going to bed."
Clocks will fall back one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday.
