Jack Knox: Politicians see daylight on ending time changes

On Sunday, March 10, 2019, nearly all the clocks in America will "spring forward" for Daylight Saving Time at 2 a.m.

Researchers have published a variety of studies that question the wisdom of changing the clock. But losing that hour doesn't have to be so disorienting.

True or false: Daylight Saving Time was created to provide more sunlight during the hours we're awake.

Sleep disruptions can also affect memory, performance and concentration levels.

For most of Mexico, daylight saving time doesn't begin until the first Sunday of April, and won't end until the last Sunday of October. And that diminished ability to function can have some serious consequences. The annual change allows people to have an extra hour of daylight after their work or school activities in the warmer months. A 2012 study published in the Journal of Applied Psychology found that shifts related to daylight saving time led to a dramatic increase in "cyber loafing" - killing time on the internet instead of working.

Lone lawmakers in both the OR and Washington Legislatures introduced alternative measures to observe standard time year-round, which would not necessitate a federal law change.

Moreover, certain health conditions might be associated with the time change.

Brunch is one hour closer.

When nightly sleep gets messed up, it can cause just about anyone to feel irritable, sleepy, and/or hungry.

Due to the inconveniences surrounding Daylight Saving Time, some states simply don't follow it anymore, and an increasing number of places are joining them.

"The biological clock is quite able to adapt to a one hour phase advance, but usually it takes time", Carrier said.

Springing forward doesn't have to be a huge fuss. If a battery is starting to lose its power, the unit will usually chirp to warn you. Some devices have a button that can turn daylight saving time on or off.

"Make sure that you sleep well tonight", she advised. "In the week leading up to the time change, pay special attention to clocking the right amount of shut eye", Sleep.org says. Farmers in the United States were mainly against Daylight Saving Time, so much so, in fact, that they lobbied against it.

If you're going to be getting up earlier, you'll want to go to bed earlier - according to how many hours of sleep you need. If not, it's time to make some adjustments before you spring forward into deeper sleep debt.
