Happy Daylight Savings Time

A whole lot more daylight for fishing....


But there is apparently a downside. Supposedly car accidents and heart attacks spike immediately after the change to daylight savings time.

Must be in those parts of the country where you can't fish yet. I feel for you.

So as a public service I share these tips from Earthsky for making the transition easier:

1. Set your alarm for 30 minutes earlier.
2. Eat some good breakfasts this week!
3. Get some sunlight.
4. Keep up your exercise schedule.
5. Drink extra water, and limit caffeine, alcohol and sugar.
6. Manage your stress with whatever stress-busting techniques work for you.
7. Go to sleep a few minutes earlier.
8. Sleep in complete darkness, in a not-too-warm room.
9. Get up at your usual time, no matter what the sunrise is doing.
10. Don’t think in terms of what time it is really. As your alarm goes off at 6 a.m. Monday morning, try not to think … it’sreally only 5 a.m. Good luck!
