How to survive daylight saving time

Remember to'Spring Forward 1 hour This Weekend as Daylight Saving Time Starts

Do not forget to set the clocks ahead one hour Saturday night before bed as we spring forward.

"Try your best to get your child ready for these "new" nap times and bedtime on Saturday by getting plenty of fresh air", sleep experts Conner Herman and Kira Ryan told Big City Moms.

Some people enjoy the twice-yearly ritual of tinkering with time, feeling that "springing forward" or "falling back" helps to usher in a more seasonal atmosphere. Managing Editor Leeanna Ellis and Assistant Editor Teresa Hoffman debate. Well, this is why you set your clocks back an hour in the fall.

All in favor of the latter, raise your hands - and count me as one of you.

When I wake on Sunday at my regular time - which will depend on the pub I was drowning my DST sorrows at the night before - I will be short by one hour.

I'm probably one of the few who think the USA should continue re-setting the time twice a year.

Daylight saving time ends November 4.

The idea of daylight saving was the brainchild of Benjamin Franklin, aka, the "early to be, early to rise" guy, back in 1784. Or, changing it so it stays all year round.

There's a reason it occurs at 2 a.m.

.

In an effort to save energy following the 1973 oil embargo, Congress changed DST dates again, then changed them again in 1976.

There are two states in America that don't follow daylight savings time.

The earliest measure I've found on it, a 1937 poll from Gallup, found 51% in favor of Daylight Saving time, 37% said they were not in favor of it, 13% had no opinion. "A province like British Columbia where we have a lot of great tourist attractions, outdoor tourist attractions especially, if we can give that extra hour on the backside it can actually be a real boost for our tourism industry", he added.

Honestly, in the fall and winter, I don't mind the darkness. But he wants one or the other.

For years we've been blaming losing that hour of sleep during the time change but, no, it's more because our rhythms take a jolt.

Lawmakers in Florida are exhausted of the whole "fall back" and "spring forward" rigamarole. Is this all really necessary?

For parents that can also mean dealing with kids who may be a little more exhausted than usual but experts at Mayo Clinic Health System says say you can get through the time change without upsetting your child's sleep schedule too much.

This change in Daylight Saving Time kept Canada's Daylight Saving Time pattern consistent with the United States which enacted into law a broad energy bill that extended Daylight Saving Time in the same manner.

It should be noted that "standard time" has become something of a misnomer, as daylight saving time encompasses most of the year. If that wasn't bad enough, here are four OTHER ways it might affect you.

I'm not the only one who feels this way.

Arizona and Hawaii have rejected DST, so each year they effectively move one time zone to the west. The report said it took the state Senate less than a minute to pass what they are calling the Sunshine Protection Act.

In 1918 President Woodrow Wilson signed into law a "Fast Time" bill, but it was repealed a few months later.

However, through legislation passed in 2006, Daylight Saving Time now begins three weeks earlier, on the second Sunday in March, ending on the first Sunday in November. And, after reading comments on various posts on Facebook this week, believe me, we could all use a pick me up.
