Time isn't on your side with coming shift to daylight saving

Get ready, it's just about time to change your clocks.

But if one state makes the switch, it can be highly disruptive to travel, business and more for neighboring states.

But it was always controversial, particularly among farmers, who liked early morning daylight in the summer.

"Plan ahead. Allow time to adjust". Currently, 48 of 50 states have Daylight Saving Time - a practice that, according to Reader's Digest, was adopted into law as part of the Uniform Time Act of 1966. A study published past year found daylight saving time transitions may be tied to an increased risk of a common type of stroke.

One clear example of that is CT, where state Rep. Kurt Vail has carried a bill for years now urging that his state move permanently to Atlantic Standard Time year-round, but only if MA does.

It is also a good time to reset timers on outdoor lights and lawn sprinkler systems.

States that came around: In the past, Alaska, Michigan and In did not observe the time change.

"So far the results have been inconclusive but in the next few months we're going to have some sort of an answer". And according to Webster's Dictionary, it's Daylight Saving - without an "s" on the end - "saving", not "savings" - Time.

So, are you moving your clock one hour forward or backward on Sunday? It now begins on the second Sunday in March and continues until the first Sunday in November.

The clock changes can also raise the risk of accidents by sleep-deprived motorists. November, thus, is when you'll move the clock back and hour.

"As we get ready to change our clocks and lose one hour of sleep on Sunday, we must be tired of the negative health effects of this practice", Chu said in a statement Friday. He argued the benefits of daylight hours, suggesting that it would help Parisians make more money.


The practice didn't become permanent in the U.S. until congress passed the Uniform Time Act in 1966.

"People don't prioritize their sleep", Carrier said, adding the problem is especially prevalent among young people. Or yesterday minus one hour. The shift from standard to daylight saving time comes at 2 a.m. local time Sunday across most of the United States.

According to Insider Health, Daylight Saving Time has been linked to sleep deprivation, decreased mental health, increased suicide rates, increased cardiovascular conditions, and increases in vehicle accidents and workplace injuries. It became a thing again during World War II, and the United States made a decision to stick with it in 1966, though Hawaii and Arizona soon got rid of it. On average, Americans lose 40 minutes of sleep when we set the clocks ahead in the spring.

"The challenge is to keep healthy sleep habits throughout the year, and this is the message for me that is the most important", Carrier, who is also the director of the Canadian Sleep and Circadian Network and a professor at the University of Montreal, said.

How Does Daylight Saving Work in Florida and Arizona?

Today, about 70 countries observe daylight saving time.

But the change isn't permanent yet.

A woman sets her clock.

"I was glad to sign legislation as governor to continue Daylight Saving Time year-round for Floridians, and now join Senator Rubio to lead this effort in Congress", Scott said in a statement.

"For me, I was a little but frustrated because I thought a vote of the people would really show our congressional delegation this is something that we want", he added.
