Daylight Saving Time Begins this Weekend

Light exposure can moderate your circadian rhythm a bit, but the body more or less relies on consistent sleep and wakefulness cues - so when they're altered, even by an hour, your sleep gets misaligned.

Others have reported that daylight-saving time can be linked to reduced road injuries. That means Arizona joins Pacific Standard Time and time in Hawaii becomes three hours earlier than PST instead of two. Would it be beneficial to keep our clocks forward the whole year and stop practicing Daylight Saving Time? Managing Editor Leeanna Ellis and Assistant Editor Teresa Hoffman debate. I don't want to be late to church. I always tell my students that sleep makes everything better: "your work, your life, your health and your relationships".

There are advocacy groups who spend their time and money lobbying for and against changing clocks twice a year. Under daylight saving time, sunrise would have been at 8:04 a.m. and sunset at 6:34 p.m.

First proposed by Benjamin Franklin in the 1770's, to save candles, the idea was eventually embraced by Germany in 1915. Or, changing it so it stays all year round. On Sunday, you'll quite literally "spring forward" when the clock strikes 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.

Whether or not to observe daylight saving time is purely a state matter, so how a state determines that - through law, resolution, or executive order - is up to them.

"My husband and I are outside all night long in the summer, and I love not coming in until after 10", she said. We took a look at some of the history behind this bi-annual ritual to see if it really makes a difference in our days. And its perceived benefits and joys aside, generally it is that time when each of us are essentially pulled from sleep an hour earlier because clocks "spring forward". In fact, careful studies of energy consumption conducted in Sydney, Australia, which extended DST to accommodate the 2000 Summer Olympic Games, and in IN before 2006, when clocks there showed three different times (some areas were on Eastern time, some on Central, and DST was not in effect statewide) found that setting clocks ahead by one hour was associated either with no change in energy usage or small but statistically significant increases. Alcohol, on the other hand, may help you feel sleepy but actually creates lighter, fragmented sleep and disrupts the deep sleep you'll need all the more the week after losing an hour.

According to the Uniform Time Act of 1966, as amended, states may exempt themselves from observing Daylight Saving Time by State law.
