Daylight Savings Time begins in the spring and ends in the fall. In addition to adjusting your clocks, there are other ways to make DST work for you!
How to Make Daylight Savings Time Work for You
Where did Daylight Savings Time Come From Anyway?
It is said that DST was originally conceived of by Benjamin Franklin in an essay he wrote while visiting Paris. Franklin was exploring the idea of natural vs artificial lighting. In the early 1900s, the idea was considered more seriously as a way to enjoy more light in the evening.
Most of the United States begins Daylight Savings Time at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and reverts to Standard Time on the first Sunday in November. When DST begins in the spring, we move the clocks forward one hour, and when it ends in the fall, we move the clocks backward one hour.
It’s Time to Remember
Changing your clocks may mess with your sleep habits, but DST can also be a good reminder to take care of those annoying tasks. Use the start and end of Daylight Savings to help you remember to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and check your fire extinguishers!
