Get ready to spring forward as daylight saving time begins Sunday

No fair: Florida is trying to opt out of Daylight Saving Time clock changes

Is it "Daylight Savings Time 2018" or "Daylight Saving Time 2018"?

But if all is approved, Floridians - who'll set their clocks ahead one hour this Sunday when Daylight Saving Time begins - won't have to mess with it ever again. Remember, it's "Spring forward, fall back". Dr. Rao says that can be avoided if you adjust your sleep schedule in increments leading up to the change. That's when you will get your lost hour of sleep back from the spring time change.

It's really not a real thing.

However, the Navajo Nation in the northeast quarter of the state does observe daylight-saving time.

A London builder, William Willett, was the first one to seriously advocate Franklin's idea in his pamphlet, "Waste of Daylight". Those locales don't observe Daylight Saving Time and operate instead on permanent standard time. Two other states, Hawaii and Arizona, have similar exemptions. Because of its relative proximity to the equator, daylight savings time offers no essential advantage to the state, which is on Hawaii-Aleutian time.

Researchers in Colorado, Sweden and Croatia have recorded up to twice as many heart attack victims on the Monday after DST compared to an average Monday. Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and American Samoa also skip out on the clock-changing fun.

Efforts to kill off daylight saving time are almost as old as the time shift itself, and even today, some are trying to get it repealed.

The United States started its own program in March, 1918, but it only lasted until the end of the war in November the same year.

He said losing sleep puts extra stressors on different points of the body so it's extra important to be proactive when Daylight Saving starts.

Because changing clocks in either direction disrupts our circadian rhythms, evidence of adverse effects on human health has been accumulating for the past decade or so.

The first places to use daylight saving time were some cities and regions of Canada in the early 1900s and then Germany in World War I. This was also around the same time the US first implemented the plan.
