Daylight Saving Time Ends November 6, 2022
Be prepared to set all your clocks back one hour before bedtime on Saturday, November 6, 2022.
You know what this means right, we all get that extra hour of much needed sleep. But what does it really mean to end Daylight Saving Time?
According to timeanddate.com:
In the fall (autumn), the DST period usually ends, and our clocks are set back to standard time again. In terms of hours on the clock, we gain one hour, so the day of the transition is 25 hours long. In effect, one hour is repeated as local time jumps from DST back to standard time. Let's say that clocks fall back from 2 to 1 o'clock. This means that the hour between 1 and 2 o'clock happens twice during the night of the switch.
Even though it may sound a bit confusing, all I know is that we'll have more daylight during the morning hours and less daylight during the evening hours.
And then once we head back to Daylight Saving Time sometime in March 2023, that's when we supposedly lose an hour of sleep. Many feel that it would be best not to go back to Daylight Saving Time.
Setting the clocks forward one hour in spring does not create more daylight, but it does change the time (on the clock) the Sun rises and sets. So, when we spring forward an hour in spring, we add one hour of natural daylight to our afternoon schedule..
There are a few cons when it comes to changing the time, and I think that's why so many Americans would rather not deal with anymore time change scenarios.
Here's why, courtesy of timeanddate.com:
Changing the time, even if it is only by one hour, disrupts our body clocks or circadian rhythm. For most people, the resulting tiredness is simply an inconvenience. For some, however, the time change can have more serious consequences to their health.
