Salem doctor gives tips for successful Daylight Saving Time

Local News

Daylight Saving is quickly approaching. 

It will begin at 2 a.m. on Saturday.

The time change can be difficult — especially for people with children.

Dr. Mike Sevilla has tips on how to make this time a smooth transition.

He says to put your child down to go to sleep 15 minutes earlier each night until it’s a full hour earlier. 

Sevilla advises people not to use their phone, TV, tablet, or computer before bed.

He says 30 minutes of exercise during the day can help with your sleep schedule. 

If you cannot fall asleep, leave the room for 20 minutes and do something relaxing, then try to fall asleep again.
