It’s time to “spring ahead” and reset the clocks on the microwave, car stereo and other appliances ahead one hour. While you set the electrical clocks ahead — it may take some time for your body clock to catch up. David Towle is the director of the University of Northern Iowa Counseling Center. He says it might take a couple of days for people to adjust, just like it takes some time to adjust to a change in time zones. Towle says it could be tougher on kids to get on their way to school on Monday. He says parents of children and teenagers may notice a bit of an adjustment change Monday morning as kids try to adjust to the change made during the weekend. Towle says light is what works on your body’s clock. He says we have much more daylight earlier in the morning, and he says people will find out they react to light. He says if you can get up and expose yourself to light as soon as possible, that signals your brain you should be up an awake. You should set your clocks ahead before going to bed tonight (Saturday).
