We lose an hour of sleep but the payoff is more light in the evenings.

Daylight Savings Time officially begins at 2 a.m. Sunday, when clocks will spring forward an hour.

Officials also say that the time switch is a good opportunity to test, clean and check smoke alarms to make sure they are working properly.




Thanks to the Standard Time Act of March 19, 1918, the second Sunday in March is when clocks are set forward one hour.

The clocks always go forward an hour in the last weekend in March, and go back an hour on during the final October weekend.

If you need some pointers for helping you body adjust to the time change, check out these tips from the Huffington Post. The reasons listed include reducing energy use, crime and prevent traffic injuries, according to the United States Department of Transportation.
