Daylight Savings Time Begins on Sunday, March 10th, 2019*

Longer days are here! It is time to “Spring Ahead”. Daylight Savings Time begins on Sunday, March 10th. Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour before you go to bed on Saturday, March 9th. On average, in March, we see between 11 and 12 hours of daylight. To help adjust with the change here are some helpful tips below.
1. Don’t change your schedule. Stick to regular waking, eating, sleeping and exercise times.
2. Have a nighttime routine. Prepare your body for sleep by engaging in a few relaxing activities before hitting the hay.
3. Avoid long naps. Keep naps short (between 20-30 minutes) to avoid disrupting your sleep schedule.
4. Get some natural sunlight. Sunlight helps regulate your body’s internal clock.
Daylight Saving Time does steal light from the morning, but the sun continues to rise earlier and thus the length of the day increases at its most rapid pace during the next three months.
There is always debate surrounding daylight saving time, but the redistribution of daylight to more useful hours of the day is always a strong argument to keep it. This 100 year old practice will always have supporters and detractors. While some of us dislike losing an hour of precious time and sleep, the payoff is an extra hour of evening sun. Most agree, that’s worth it!
