As a tired mom, the night Daylight Saving Time starts is not my favorite time of the year. Losing that hour is rough and has me reaching for an extra cup of coffee or two. Not only is it directly difficult for me, but Kora & Logan often have a hard time adjusting too, which affects us all. After a couple days we eventually all get adjusted and things fall back into place, even so I’ve often wondered if other people struggle with it as much as we do.
That’s why I was interested in a this study about Daylight Saving Time that revealed:
- More than half of all US adults say their sleep is affected by Daylight Saving Time; for those that say they suffer from occasional sleeplessness, more than 60% cite DST as affecting their sleep.
- Despite that, 81% of US adults do nothing to prepare for the time change
- Some of the significant problems caused by DST that affect roughly half (48%) of US adults include oversleeping, showing up late for work, or losing a personal item such as a wallet or keys
Daylight Saving Time starts Sunday, March 8th, 2015 – remember to set your clocks forward!
