Daylight Saving Time: The myths and the truths

Scot Gow works on clocks at Electric Time Company in Medfield

"As we get ready to change our clocks and lose one hour of sleep on Sunday, we must be tired of the negative health effects of this practice", Chu said in a statement Friday.

Daylight Saving Time returns at 2:00 a.m. this Sunday morning, March 10th.

We are also expecting a warm up this weekend. The clocks change again on Sunday, November 3, so you have something to look forward to/dread again.

The reason that springing the clocks forward can kill us comes down to interrupted sleep schedules.

"I was glad to sign legislation as governor to continue Daylight Saving Time year-round for Floridians, and now join Senator Rubio to lead this effort in Congress", Scott said in a statement.

Get ready to "spring forward" as people throughout the United States lose an hour of sleep in the early morning of Sunday.

True or false: Daylight Saving Time was created to provide more sunlight during the hours we're awake. The practice fizzled out after the war until it was implemented again in World War II to save fuel and resources. In 2019, Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands are the only U.S. states and territories that do not observe Daylight Saving Time.

Initially, in Germany, the concept behind Daylight Saving Time was meant to help conserve energy.

Today, about 70 countries observe daylight saving time. People also report feeling disoriented and unproductive.

Rauscher's House Bill 43 would have the State petition the U.S. Department of Transportation to initiate proceedings under the Uniform Time Act of 1966, which would include public hearings on changing the time zone boundaries, putting Alaska permanently on Alaska Standard Time. In fact, several attempts have been made in the past to change Daylight Saving Time for Arkansas. While cell phones and many digital clocks adjust automatically, traditional clocks don't and, since few people feel it necessary to wait until 2 a.m.to make the change, it's customary to move clocks ahead one hour before going to bed Saturday night.

States that came around: In the past, Alaska, Michigan and In did not observe the time change.
