People across Britain will soon have to face the prospect of an hour less in bed as the clocks go forward.

The UK swaps to British Summer Time on Sunday, March 27 at 1.00am, which means you’ll need to put your clock forward an hour.

British Summer Time marks the beginning of spring, and Reeds Rains is highlighting a selection of tips you may find helpful with the time change.

Evening cycle rides
British Summer Time means that you can enjoy cycle rides in the lighter evenings. York has some great cycle routes straight out of the city centre into the countryside and there’s nearly always a pub handy to quench the thirst!

Smart phones
Remember electronics such as smart phones and tablets change automatically so you don't need to worry. Of course, if you do forget, you'll end up losing two hours from your day.

Help your child sleep
Fit blackout blinds as lighter evenings can make it harder for children to sleep. Whatever time you put them to bed, using blinds keeps the daylight out and helps your little one realise it is time for sleep.

Have an afternoon nap
If you haven’t managed to get some extra sleep the night before and don’t fancy going to bed early on the Sunday night, then you could try getting forty winks on the Sunday afternoon with a power nap. However, don’t nap for too long or it could have a negative effect on your sleep, make sure you set an alarm to wake you up.
