Daylight Savings Time Makes Some Tired for Days
This Sunday, Daylight Savings Time begins.
For those who always get the adjustment mixed up, we're going to "spring forward," meaning we lose an hour of sleep.
One hour. This is equivalent to going to bed an hour later than usual on ONE night.
So, why is it that so many people claim to take days to adjust? If you normally go to bed at 10 p.m. and wake up at 5 a.m. but last night, you went at 11 p.m. and woke up this morning at the same time as usual, that's only one hour lost. It shouldn't make you tired for the next 3 days. Yet, that's exactly what some people say when Daylight Savings Time begins. They complain about that one hour lost in one night as if they're losing an hour every night.
If you know someone who says this every time Daylight Savings Time begins, please let him or her know that they only lose one hour for one night, which may be remedied by going to bed an hour earlier.
