Time to “Spring Forward”

Daylight Saving Time Starts this Sunday, March 13, 2011 at 2:00 am

Prepare to Spring Forward

Usually signifying that summertime is on its way, daylight savings time is approaching.  The bad part is that we lose an hour of sleep.  Some of the reasons daylight savings is observed are because daytime lasts longer.  Some people believe that having daylight last longer can reduce accidents and injuries, particularly when driving.  Longer days can also be beneficial for tourism industries because people will want to stay outside longer. 

The University of Connecticut Health Center offers these tips for managing your sleep and life this weekend – and the rest of the year.

–Practice. In the days leading up to the change, go to bed 15 minutes earlier and wake up 15 minutes earlier.
–Take a nap on Saturday – but not close to bedtime.
–Just do it. After the time change, go to bed at your usual time – even if you don’t feel sleepy. You’ll get used to it.
