Why Is It So Hard To Spring Forward?

ClockWe all love the extra hour of daylight, but why is it so hard to spring forward? Hopoffthis.Com wants to give some great insight on how intense this time change can be on the body and mind.  Do we even know what daylight savings time is? Daylight saving time (DST) or summer time, “is the practice of advancing clocks during the lighter months so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in the autumn.”

According to The Huffington Post, “It’s easier to delay,” explains Dr. Muhammad Hamadeh, M.D., the medical director of the sleep disorders center at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Chicago. “If you go to sleep at 10 p.m., you can stay up another hour and sleep at 11 p.m. But asking you to go to sleep earlier is harder, like falling asleep at 9 p.m. instead of 10 p.m.”

“The disruption to the body’s natural rhythms can be felt for days, particularly when there’s more morning darkness immediately after the start of Daylight Saving Time.Light is the primary time cue for our natural clock. When light changes, that goes out of sync with our internal clock. Hamadeh says secretion of several hormones in the early morning or early evening — like the sleep-promoting hormone melatonin — can quickly become out of sync during Daylight Saving changes.”

So with that being said, make sure the extra hour of daylight doesn’t give room for procrastination.Eat healthy and get a good nights rest through spring summer, it really does take a toll on your body. DST only last from Sunday March 9th to Sunday November 2nd so make sure you enjoy it!
