  • Start prepar­ing the body for the trans­fer of the hands of the clock in advance. Try to wake up and go to bed ear­li­er. The main task is to get a good night’s sleep every day.
  • It is bet­ter to cook break­fast, clean and iron the clothes in which you will go to work in the evening. In the morn­ing, you should be able to sleep half an hour longer.
  • Dur­ing the peri­od of adap­ta­tion to win­ter time, which, depend­ing on the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the body, lasts from two weeks to a month, do not leave for the morn­ing mat­ters that can take many vil­lages.
  • Music will pro­vide you with a cheer­ful rise. Make a playlist of rhyth­mic com­po­si­tions that lift your mood and make you want to dance, and turn it on imme­di­ate­ly after wak­ing up.
  • Do not for­get about the con­trast show­er. It will eas­i­ly dri­ve away the rem­nants of sleep. Fol­low the diet and be sure to take mul­ti­vi­t­a­mins. Your diet dur­ing the tran­si­tion peri­od should be bal­anced.
  • Avoid over­work. In the first two weeks after mov­ing the hands of the clock, you can afford to be a lit­tle lazy. On week­ends, try to rest well.
