Falling back can mean bad things for your health

Daylight Savings Time ends and we "fall back" an hour. At first the idea of an extra hour of sleep in the morning sounds amazing; but, the time change can actually hurt your health over the next few months. Here’s what experts say can happen to you:

You will be a little fuzzy: For the first week after the time change expect to have trouble focusing and staying sharp at work – sleep deprivation can make us feel fuzzy.

Your seasonal depression can get worse: Fewer daylight hours is a trigger for many people who suffer from seasonal affective disorder (SAD), which can make the winter months very difficult to navigate.

You go into hibernation mode: Instead of going to the gym or out with friends after work, people go home because it's dark out. Getting out of your routine is bad for your mood and your health.  (Health)
