Hopefully you don’t have a court appearance on Monday…
Daylight Saving Time starts on Sunday March 11th at 2am, so we lose an hour of sleep this weekend but we gain daylight in the evening. Don’t forget to move your clocks FORWARD one hour when you go to bed Saturday night unless you want to set your alarm and change your clock at the official time at 2am…hahaha
1. There’s an increase in heart attacks on Monday. One study found that on Mondays after the time springs forward, hospitals see a 25% increase in heart attacks.
2. There are more car crashes. On average there’s an 8% increase in traffic accidents in the days after we lose an hour of sleep.
3. You’ll waste more time on the internet. A study found that on the Monday after the shift to Daylight Saving Time, employees spent more time procrastinating and wasting time on the Internet at work.
4. Your stress levels may increase. In a study, people’s cortisol levels rose when the sunrise time was pushed back an hour. On average, there was a 5% increase in stress levels.
A group of psychologists found that JUDGES were more likely to give harsher sentences after losing an hour of sleep. So hopefully you don’t need to go to court next week.
Stay out of trouble this weekend.

By the way, we’ll get the lost hour back on Sunday November 4th.
