One of the best ways to get ready for Fall Back on Sunday, 11/4/2018 is to manage your expectations. What? You may get up a bit earlier each day (for about 4-5 days) after setting the clocks back by 1 hour on Sunday at 2am. This is normal. You may also find it a bit more difficult to fall asleep as fast as you normally do for about 4-5 days after setting the clocks back 1 hour. This is normal.
