It’s that time again. On Sunday Nov. 6, people throughout the continent will set their clocks back an hour and “fall back” to standard time.

Wondering how to navigate shorter, darker days as painlessly as possible? Make the transition easier by maximizing these helpful resources:

Add some sunlight back in your day with Asheville Fit Tribe’s exercise offerings, which include group fitness classes at Carrier Park from 7 a.m.-6:15 p.m. Monday-Friday. Sunlight, wellness, and new friends? Win-win.

Disrupted sleep and routines can make us drowsier and more peckish, so make eating healthy easier on yourself. Hit up New Stock Pantry for pre-made meals for omnivores, vegans, and vegetarians that only need reheating.

Resist the urge to lounge and binge watch TV and engage in something creative instead. Peruse works of arts by the Asheville Art Museum, take in a theatrical production from the Magnetic Theatre, stimulate your mind with some games at Well Played Board Game Cafe, or take a cooking class from Asheville Mountain Kitchen.
