It’s Time to Spring Your Clocks Forward for Daylight Savings!

March 10th, 2017

At 2:00 am this Sunday, daylight savings time begins! Don’t forget to adjust your clocks forward an hour as we enter into Spring! This jump forward also results in an increase of drowsy drivers on the road due to losing an hour of sleep.

Also, resetting the clock is always a good time to replace the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors to make sure you stay safe throughout Spring.

And finally, FOX News reminds us that this time change might be throwing our bodies a curveball. Here are some ways to help your body adjust as you spring forward:

  • Eliminate caffeine or alcohol within two hours of bedtime
  • Put yourself on a schedule – go to sleep and get up at the same time each day allowing your body to adjust properly
  • Add 30 minutes of exercise to your daily routine
  • Try to avoid watching television before bed

Remember to adjust your clocks and get an extra hour of sleep to ensure your safety on and off the road.
