We've been dreading it for months. But, like a fly wafting in with the scent of PSL, it's finally almost here. It's promised to turn us against those we love most, plunging us into the apocalyptic world our gross species probably deserves.

No, we're not talking about the election — we're talking about daylight saving time. (Insert scream-face emoji here.) Technically, it's the end of daylight saving time, which means that, at 2:00 a.m. on November 6, we're falling back and getting an extra hour of sleep in the process. But, as we well know, that extra hour of sleep is sweet for only so long — before waking up in the dark and just feeling off takes over.

Okay, so we're being glib here; DST is not the worst thing in the world, and in the scheme of things (like, you know, the election, global climate change, etc.) it's not a big deal. Soon enough, you'll be used to it, and everything will be okay.
Still, it remains true that DST can be kind of annoying for your body, especially during that first week. Thankfully, there are a few tried-and-true things you can do to help soften the blow of the weekend's incoming life changes.

So, go ahead and click through for a few tips on staying energized and stress-free as the universe inevitably crumbles around us.
