LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — You'll be losing an hour of sleep this weekend because of daylight saving time.

Here's some tips experts say will help make the transition easier.

  • Set your alarm earlier each day until the time change
  • Get seven to nine hours of sleep

And if sleep just seems elusive in general, it may be time to take a look at your sleep habits or seek some help.

Some good sleepy hygiene tips:

  • Make sure your room is as dark as possible
  • Keep the temperature at a comfortable level, not too hot or too cold
  • Limit exposure to screens (including your phone)
  • Intense exercise within an hour before bed
