I do it by changing the protection levels not the hours.
My deck gets mostly morning and a little early afternoon sun. It has a long plant bench. When I first bring things out, I put them UNDER the plant bench, where they are protected from wind and direct sun. Bring them back in, in the evening when I get home from work. After they are used to that, they can be out from under, but next to the house, where they still get wind protection and some direct sun, but fewer hours. Then they are gradually moved away from the house to less and less protected sites, with more hours of sun. Eventually they come down from the deck to closer to full sun areas.
So they go out in the morning before work (weather permitting) and come in in the evening after work. But the amount of sun/ wind exposure they get is controlled by where they are located.
