Time isn't on your side with change to daylight saving

Here are some tips to feel your best when changing your clock. But losing that hour doesn't have to be so disorienting.

On Thursday, British Columbia Premier John Horgan sent a letter to the governors of Washington, Oregon and California about bills each of the states are considering, writing that 'a change in any of these jurisdictions in our time zone would have significant impacts on British Columbia'. "Subsequently, notwithstanding subdivision (b), the daylight saving time period will not end and will apply year-round".

Supporters pointed to a study showing an increased risk of vehicle accidents and heart attacks following the spring change, due to the loss of an hour's sleep. And that diminished ability to function can have some serious consequences. After hearing that politicians in California, Washington and OR are all considering doing away with the twice-a-year time change, Premier John Horgan wrote their governors this past week to broach the idea of acting in concert with British Columbia. 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.

On Thursday, Sen. Marco Rubio, R- Florida, introduced Senate Bill 670 in the Senate, which would allow all states to switch to year-round daylight saving time if they pass a bill through the state legislature.

However, whether or not the expected energy savings from Daylight Saving Time actually exist is a topic fraught with contradictory findings.

"Make sure that you sleep well tonight", she advised. But sleeping times vary from person to person, and needs change as people age, so the amount of hours each person sleeps will be different. No one's ever quite ready for it, though springing forward tends to go a bit more smoothly than falling backward. It's basically a little reward for surviving a long, dark winter, though it's not technically spring for another 11 days after Daylight Saving Time kicks off.

That hour lost will be a lot easier to handle if you slowly ease your body into it. "And if people do not respect that at some point in time, they will pay the price". At 2am, clocks are to be set forward an hour, meaning it'll jump from 2 in the morning, to 3am. Last month, a handful of citizens came forward during public hearings to oppose the proposed axing of Pacific Standard Time.

Sunday. Too-early a.m. The alarm clock in one ear and the sharp elbow in the other say it's time to get out of bed.
