Daylight Saving Time Steals an Hour This Sunday, March 11th

nGl23qjIf you think you never have enough time on the weekends, you definitely are not going to like this weekend. It’s Daylight Saving Time again, and this isn’t the fun one as we turn the clocks forward an hour.

The official change of time begins at 2 A.M.  on the morning of Sunday, March 11th, 2018. Be sure to set your clocks ahead by 1 hour before you go to bed on Saturday Night.

Daylight saving time is currently adopted in over 70 countries and imposes a twice yearly 1 hour change in local clock time. Many assume that the time change only affects your sleep pattern that night, but a study out of England suggests that the seemingly small one-hour shift in the sleep cycle can affect sleep for up to a week. In my opinion, I know I didn’t need a study to tell me that.

Either way you see it, don’t forget to turn your clocks forward one hour so that you aren’t late for anything on Sunday!
