Spring Forward This Weekend

This news might catch you off guard. Daylight Savings Time happens this weekend. We spring forward as clocks push ahead one hour at 2:00 am Sunday morning. Most devices automatically change the time now but some will need to be manually adjusted. This is the time of year to be reminded that the time change could mess with the body. Experts say the loss of one hour causes a higher risk of heart attack and stroke. If losing one hour of sleep caused this, I’d have strokes daily and 3 heart attacks a day…as would most of us.

That hour difference also can hurt people who already have trouble sleeping. For 5 to 7 days after the time change, it could affect people’s sleep patterns.
