Seen At 11: Daylight Saving Time Can Be A Danger To Your Health

“Our body has a natural circadian rhythm which is almost an internal clock that regulates our 24-hour cycle. It regulates our sleep-wake cycle and that can be disturbed fairly easily,” said neuro-psychiatrist Dr. Julia Samton.  According to Samton, even moving the clocks just one hour may mean disrupted sleep patterns, and more, for some people.

(We’ll have to address apples and swimming on a full tummy in another post!)  Seeing as how I love sleep almost as much as I love my husband, this news isn’t something I’m taking lightly.
