Daylight Savings Time 2012 is coming this weekend. The event, also known as Daylight Saving Time, will happen on Sunday, March 11 in the wee hours of the morning. Most U.S. states will spring forward at that time.
The time change means instead of the usual 48 hours, this weekend will only have 47. While that is a bit sad for the two days that break up the work week, it is actually going to end up being great because you will be able to enjoy an extra hour of daylight each evening until the first weekend in November.
Daylight Savings Time is a tough adjustment, and many people wish that the time would stop moving forward and back during the year. Which side of the argument do you fall on? Would you like to stop having to make this adjustment twice a year?
Did you know that the time change actually causes workplace and traffic accidents to increase? That is a little scary, and it is certainly something to be aware of, so that you can make sure you are extra safe in the days following Daylight Savings Time. Not only do accidents increase, but so do heart attacks. If you feel symptoms of heart problems next week, do not ignore them.
What are your tips to help deal with springing forward? Do you normally have an easy or difficult adjustment? Do not forget to move your clocks forward one hour before you go to sleep on Saturday night. At least doing that will help make sure you know what time it is on Sunday morning.
