This Sunday, November 4, we set our clocks back an hour. The move back to standard time might leave you dragging come Monday morning, but there are some things you can do to help you fall back an hour without falling out of your usual sleep schedule.

In addition to taking steps to be well rested, the seasonal time change is also a good reminder to check in with our routines and our health.

The time change back to standard time also reminds us that we’re in the thick of fall, and winter-like weather isn’t too far away.

Be rested, be safe and be well as we fall back!
