Turn your clocks back this weekend

Daylight Savings Time ends early Sunday morning, meaning everyone will have an extra hour of sleep to cherish. Since the George W. Bush administration, the transition in the fall has happened the first weekend in November. We will stay on standard time until March. The change means that sunrise and sunset are pushed an hour earlier. When the work week starts, it will be dark as you leave the office. There are currently talks at the state and federal level to remain on Daylight Savings Time year round. but those are preliminary in nature.

The time shift is traditionally viewed as a good time to check smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Having that equipment in good working order can be the crucial difference in saving a life during an emergency. Other things to be wary of while your body adjusts to the difference are to take extra precaution when driving or operating heavy machinery. Some tips for you personally include maintaining your routine. Go to sleep and wake up at the same time as normal. Practice best habits in the hours leading up to lying down. Read a book rather than watch television, use a computer, or your smartphone. Blue light stunts our ability to fall asleep.
