Local ways to prepare for the end of daylight saving time

Set back the clocks and put your best foot forward.

The skyline looks as moody as we feel when our sleep gets disturbed.

It’s that time again. On Sunday, Nov. 6, people will set their clocks back an hour and “fall back” to standard time.

Wondering how to navigate shorter, darker days as painlessly as possible? Make the transition easier by maximizing these helpful resources:

Add some sunlight back in your day with Small World Yoga’s community classes, which take place across Middle Tennessee libraries and various other locations in the early morning and evening hours. Sunlight, wellness, and new friends? Win-win-win.

Disrupted sleep and routines can make us drowsier and more peckish, so make eating healthy easier on yourself. Hit up Eat Well Nashville for pre-made meals for omnivores, vegans, and vegetarians that only need reheating.

Resist the urge to lounge and binge watch TV and engage in something creative instead. Peruse works of arts at the Frist Art Museum, take in a theatrical production of “Shiners” at Woolworth Theatre, stimulate your mind with some games at Game Point Cafe, or take a cooking class with Sur La Table.
