The beginning of daylight saving time means more than just losing an hour of sleep for you Sunday morning.
As Sunday morning nears, keep in mind to set your clocks forward by one hour by 2 a.m., or before you go to bed Saturday night. Or yesterday minus one hour. Daylight Savings Time, while often used, is a misspelling.
"In the ideal world situation, in terms of biology, I would prefer that we don't need to submit ourselves twice a year to time change".
And if all else fails - remember, spring is one hour closer! Well, everyone except Hawaii, Arizona, Guam, Puerto Rico, American Samoa and the Virgin Islands since those areas do not observe DST.
But whether you like it or not, don't forget to change your clock.
"Leading into daylight saving you can slowly adjust their schedules 15 minutes at a time", she said.
Early Sunday morning marks the spring forward step of daylight saving and with it, the loss of an hour of sleep. Currently, 48 of 50 states have Daylight Saving Time - a practice that, according to Reader's Digest, was adopted into law as part of the Uniform Time Act of 1966.
"I think people are ready to stop changing their clocks and now is the appropriate time to have that conversation and hopefully move our federal partners and our time zone to a much healthier lifestyle", Riccelli said.
"Light in the evening and light even from the computer or electronic devices is also stimulating during the night and pushing your biological clock to go later", Carrier said.
The practice wasn't made permanent in the USA until 1973, when President Richard Nixon signed the Emergency Daylight Saving Time Energy Conservation Act.
"That's how fragile and susceptible your body is to even just one hour of lost sleep", sleep expert Matthew Walker, author of How We Sleep, previously told Business Insider.
Something historic could take place when you set the clock ahead tonight.
I don't think it's a stretch to say that if NY makes the change, it could spur a number of states in the Northeast to follow suit. DST also causes more reports of injuries at work, more strokes, and may lead to a temporary bump in suicides. No, seriously. The idea was thrown around and unofficially observed for years, but was officially enacted for the first time during WWI - March 19, 1918 - as a way to conserve coal.
