Don’t forget to set your clock back this Sunday. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine says it’s a chance to improve your sleeping habits…

“The time change is more than turning the clock back,” says Dr. Sam Fleishman, a board certified sleep physician who serves as AASM president. “It’s a once a year opportunity to reset your body clock for an extra hour of sleep every night.”

AASM’s new website – www.sleepeducation.com – explains how to use this opportunity to reset your body clock and find help for many sleep problems.

It’s common knowledge, says Fleishman, that you can get an extra hour of sleep on the night we turn the clocks back. You can make this change permanent by maintaining the earlier bedtime on a nightly basis.

“Adding an hour to your nightly sleep is the best opportunity to make sleep a priority in your life,” he says.
