Daylight saving time can be bad for your health

Daylight Saving 2018 Don't forget to turn your clocks forward

Although Dr. Mia Finkelston, a board-certified family physician who treats patients via telehealth app LiveHealth Online, believes that daylight saving time isn't necessarily harder to manage in the Spring versus the Fall, when we gain an hour, but she personally has found that springtime clock changes are harder on families. Twenty-six states considered making DST permanent previous year, according to Time Zone, a group tracking and promoting the effort. The sunset in Tampa on December 22 would happen at about 6:39 p.m., an hour later than last year's 5:39 p.m. sunset.

Daylight saving time is meant to maximize the number of hours of daylight.

Previously, Canada had observed Daylight Saving Time from the first Sunday in April until the last Sunday in October.

In reality, farmers disliked daylight saving time because they needed the sun to dry dew from their crops before they could harvest and go to market. "We feel like we're the constant and the rest of the world moves around us".

The DOT says daylight saving is observed because it saves energy, saves lives by preventing traffic accidents and also reduces crime.

1914-1918 - Britain goes on DLS during World War I.

Some people seem to like DST; others prefer standard time. Daylight saving is repealed in 1919, but continues to be recognized in certain areas of the United States. To observe it permanently would require a change in federal laws.

"The Eastern Time Zone is by far the biggest in the US because areas want to be on the same time as our financial and political capitals", Prerau said. States were allowed to exempt themselves from the requirement as long as the entire state did so.

Before Tiffany Haddish took the stage with Maya Rudolph
Carrying her shoes on stage, Haddish wore a Alexander McQueen dress that she'd previously worn to the Girls Trip premiere. The Girls Trip star opted for an authentic Eritrean princess gown, which she wore to honor her late father's heritage.

1974-1975 - Congress extends DLS in order to save energy during the energy crisis.

August 8, 2005 - President George W. Bush signs the Energy Policy Act of 2005 into law.

On Sunday at 2 a.m. local time, we are "springing forward", moving the clocks ahead one hour as we enter daylight saving time (DST). There's a great habit in changing every battery in the house when the times changes - whether they need it or not. Are we, collectively, morning people or evening people? Time change is not observed in Hawaii, America Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Commonwealth of Northern Marina Islands or Arizona.

That might not sound like much, but it could have serious effects depending on your job.

John Oliver's HBO program did a really effective job making fun of it past year. It makes sense then to consider how the shift to daylight saving time influences workers in white-collar settings. Once daylight saving time begins, most of the country will enjoy daylight lasting until after 7 p.m., again. Recent studies have shown a relatively minor reduction in energy use during DST for northern states, but little savings for southern states.

He said, "I want to know what proponents are out there saying this is wrong".

While fall is my favorite season, the one thing I dread each year is turning my clock back and having it get dark shortly after I get off work, or in many cases before I even leave the office.
