CNET News Video: Apps to help adjust to daylight saving

1:02 /

This Sunday morning, our clocks spring forward one hour to mark the beginning of daylight saving time. While it might be nice for some to have more light at the end of the day, it can be tough for bodies to adjust to darker mornings. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on some ways technology can help ease the transition.

If you're not exactly springing on a bed in the darkness of morning, time to download Alarmy, also nicknamed Sleep If U Can. This ingenious app gives you three options to silence the alarm by default which is tapping the phone to turn it off by shaking it or the best part by taking a photo to match an , something in your kitchen or bathroom if you really wanna be forced out of bed. It's been proving that blue light can help reset circadian rhythms. If you're having difficult falling asleep to do the time change, perhaps the $2 Android app, a blue sleep therapy can help. Through your phone, blue light is projected onto the wall or ceiling, guiding your breath and focus into a restful sleep. Winter blues got you down? Turn to the free iPhone app Blue Light Therapy to pick you up. It's simple. Set the amount of time you like to play with the blue light and then listen to the calming music while creating ripples of blue light on the screen. In San Francisco, I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com for CBS News.
