Wait, we're changing the clocks again? Didn't we just move them back an hour? It feels like just yesterday we added an hour of sleep to our day. As the colder, darker days come to an end, it's time to prepare ourselves for longer, brighter days. On Sunday, March 14th, at 2 am, we'll lose an hour. Before you go to bed on Saturday night, don't forget to move your clocks forward one hour! So we get more daylight, which is great! But what's the catch? Well, the sun will rise an hour later, so for all the early birds, this can have a significant impact.
Did you know Daylight Saving Time didn't always exist?
In 1918, President Woodrow Wilson followed Germany's lead and adopted the idea of DST, or Daylight Saving Time. He pitched the idea as a way to benefit farmer's work with crops and harvest. In reality, retailers also thrived. People stayed out shopping later, which benefitted them. However, not all 50 states followed through with it - Arizona and Hawaii chose to opt-out.
As mentioned previously, early birds, or those who like to get up early, can be greatly affected when natural light isn't what is waking them up. Beurer has a range of wake-up lights that simulate sunlight. These allow you to fall asleep naturally and wake up gently. With alarms and other features that will get you through the night - and morning!
