Nothing Like Losing 1 Hour For Daylight Savings Time Change!
It is time for the annual shift to daylight saving time. Being it is March, it is the spring forward concept of losing 1 hour of sleep of which we will regain again later this year. But do we?
Many of us will take weeks to acclimate to this yearly event. Many workers will feel off kilter until the body finally joins in and levels out to the added sunlight at the end of the day.
Researchers have found that human beings just have a hard time adjusting to this. Humans are tired and may be even cranky. On one hand, the extra daylight gives the farmer more time to farm the acreage. However, does it help in the energy sector? NO! This really needs to be looked at seriously. The summertime means much more energy for air conditioning in the hotter states.
Not everyone is enthusiastic about daylight savings time. Alaska is trying to stop due to the summer to winter change is extreme for them at their northerly latitude. Florida is looking to abolish it due to the same reason as Arizona, cooling is longer due to their southerly latitude. Indiana has only the western part of the state utilizing daylight savings time. Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands do not participate either.
So, do not forget to turn your clocks forward 1 hour on Sunday. Thank goodness the computers will do the time change for ya! That includes your phones too! 😀
Daylight Savings Time ….as the green future unfolds.
