4 tips on how to switch to daylight saving time while you sleep

It is that time again. At the end of March, the clocks will be set forward by one hour. This disrupts the circadian rhythm of many people. Here are some tips to help you cope with the time change:

  • Adjust your sleep rhythm slowly
  • Darken the room for sleeping
  • Stay active
  • Do not plan any important appointments on the day after the time change

Smart time change with Grässlin models

The change to daylight saving time brings yet even more challenges. If you have a time switch that switches the light on at dusk, for example, you will need to reprogram it. Fortunately, Grässlin has a solution for this. With the smart models, you do not need to worry about reprogramming, as the astro function does it for you automatically. You not only save time, but also money, as the lighting will only be switched on when it gets dark.

Astro function – can do more than you think

Nearly all high-quality time switches from Grässlin automatically switch to daylight saving time and vice versa. However, if you opt for a device with astro function, you get even more. The astro function adapts your lighting to the natural course of the seasons. The lighting will be switched on when the sun sets and switched off when the sun rises. This brings you a big step closer to the actual reason for the time change, that is, the efficient use of energy. The astro function uses GPS coordinates to determine your location as well as the times of sunrise and sunset.
