Battling the effects of daylight saving
March 31, 2004
Last weekend, Australians living in NSW, ACT, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia all experienced the luxury of an extra hours sleep, marking the end of daylight saving.

While the end of daylight saving signifies a welcomed extra hour of sleep, this disruption to our body clock can work to the detriment of our health and well-being, with upset sleep patterns and energy loss.

The change in daylight saving also coincides with a change of season which can also challenge the immune system and impact negatively on our health.

The impacts of daylight saving on our body and morale can often be over looked, but a few simple steps can help you combat any adverse effects.

  • Bolster immune system: Changes to the body’s rhythms can challenge the immune system. Be proactive in maintaining a strong immune system by taking Blackmores Echinacea Forte which supports healthy function of the immune system.
  • Exercise: Many of us find with the change of time our body clocks still want to wake us up that extra hour earlier. This is a great opportunity to get up and take advantage of the extra time with some exercise. A power walk or exercise of your choice will enliven the senses, helping you to be more alert and giving you a really positive start to the day.
  • Drink lots of water: Not only does this contribute to a healthier you, it can also be a great remedy for low levels of energy
  • Boost your energy: If you are feeling a little lack-lustre with the change in your body clock, try taking Blackmores Envital. This herbal, vitamin and mineral supplement helps maintain the healthy function of the nervous system and supports the adrenal glands which are necessary for natural energy production. This improves mental alertness and can assist in overcoming fatigue.
  • Relax: When adjusting your body clock to a new pattern, be patient and listen to your body. Take time out to do something that you find relaxing like yoga, a long aromatherapy bath or read some of that bestseller book that you are enjoying.
  • Renew your goals: Why not use this time of change to reflect on the past months, re-motivate and set new goals for the next six months.

Always read the label. Use only as directed.
