The switch to Daylight Saving Time can mess up the body’s sleep rhythm, making people feel drowsy and lethargic for days. But doctors have some advice on what to do and what to eat to overcome it.

La PORTE — There are two times each year when our bodies’ internal clocks get messed up as we switch to and from Daylight Saving Time, but sleep experts say there are ways to overcome the change, which can disrupt sleeping patterns.

Indiana and most other states will set the clocks ahead at 2 a.m. this Sunday, making sunrise and sunset an hour later starting Sunday.
