There just never seems to be enough hours in the day, right? Well, with the end of Daylight Saving Time, we’ve at least gained one.

The mornings will get brighter, the evenings will get darker, but most importantly, many Americans scored an extra hour of rest.

Make the most of the additional hour with these totally achievable tips:

PUSH YOURSELF with some morning exercise. With that extra hour of snoozin’ under your belt and the earlier sunrise, you’ll be much more motivated to get up and go. Try this 30-minute body blast (on page 42) for a quick and effective start to your day.

FUEL YOURSELF with a five-star breakfast. If you’re already a breakfast person, kick up your usual meal with these protein pancakes. Not a breakfast person? The extra time leaves you with no excuse not to jumpstart your metabolism with some overnight oats or this tasty berry smoothie.

TEACH YOURSELF something new. Always wanted to become a yogi? Set aside some time to practice before heading into work. Want to start a new book series? Use the darker evenings as an excuse to curl up with a good read.

TREAT YOURSELF with extra relaxation. Take a bath after a long day at work and cozy up earlier than normal. Or, try our Dr. Formulated Probiotics Mood+ to support relaxation and emotional well-being.

Even though resetting all of your time-telling devices and adapting to the new hours can be a nuisance, we recommend trying these tips to optimize the shorter days.
