It’s that time of year again, when clocks spring forward and we lose an hour of sleep; Daylight Saving Time arrives at 2 a.m. on Sunday. It’s best to set your clock ahead one hour before you go to bed Saturday night.
Losing 60 minutes may not seem like a lot, but according to sleep experts, it does.
“Given that we are a sleep-deprived society, losing an hour is felt a lot harder that you think,” explains Ryerson psychology professor Colleen Carney.
“Difficulties in alertness… they’re going to notice some mood problems and maybe even some sleep problems,” she adds.
Carney also says people can try to offset the effects of losing the time by going to bed a half-hour earlier and getting up a half-hour earlier over the next few nights.
While some think the idea of changing the clocks is ridiculous, others say they don’t mind the time change as it means more sunlight and warmer weather is on the way.
Happy March Break to Everyone!!!!
