Transitions into and out of daylight saving time compromise sleep and the rest-activity cycles.
BMC Physiol. 2008 Feb 12; 8:3.BP

Abstract

BACKGROUND

The aim of this study was to analyze the effects of transition out of and into daylight saving time on the rest-activity cycles and sleep. Rest-activity cycles of nine healthy participants aged 20 to 40 years were measured around transitions out of and into daylight saving time on fall 2005 and spring 2006 respectively. Rest-activity cycles were measured using wrist-worn accelerometers. The participants filled in the Morningness-Eveningness and Seasonal Pattern Assessment Questionnaires before starting the study and kept a sleep diary during the study.

RESULTS

Fall transition was more disturbing for the more morning type and spring transition for the more evening type of persons. Individuals having a higher global seasonality score suffered more from the transitions.

CONCLUSION

Transitions out of and into daylight saving time enhanced night-time restlessness and thereby compromised the quality of sleep.
