Daylight Saving Time an opportunity to check your sleep habits

Daylight Saving Time an opportunity to check your sleep habits”

There are several states and areas that do not follow Daylight Saving Time and those include Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the US Virgin Islands. "It's very important for your brain function, it's really important for your sleep quality and it's a really important time giver for your circadian clock".

There might be some benefits to the time change each year.

Daylight saving time ends this weekend.

The weather in Lancaster County will be uneventful on Saturday but, meteorologically speaking, it will be eventful with setting clocks back an hour and an extra bright full moon known as the "Beaver Moon".

The shift means it's lighter earlier in the morning and darker earlier in the evening.

However, the extra sleep time may not be beneficial for your body.

On the positive side, WebMD notes losing an hour of sleep in the spring is more hard to adjust to than gaining an hour in the fall.

Chronic sleep loss is known to have a wide variety of negative health effects, including an increase risk of disease, loss of mental awareness and judgment, and an increased risk of injury, such as vehicle accidents.

Many mainstream devices these days, from smartphones to computers, are programed to automatically adjust their clocks to accomidate daylight saving.

Depression rates declined after about 10 weeks; researchers said that's because sunlight impacts the brain, and those studied were exposed to more sunlight at that point. In New York City and along the East Coast of the United States the sun will rise at 6:31 a.m. EST.

Some believe is cheaper to "fall back" than to "spring forward".
