The United States and Canada “sprung ahead”— gaining an extra hour of sunlight in the evening but losing an hour of sleep— when daylight saving time arrived this weekend.
There are mixed feelings about daylight saving across the board— there is excitement about the extra post-work daylight, there are early birds who dislike the darker mornings, and more general negative feelings about changing the clocks altogether
that moving the clocks back and forth each year is bad for public health and safety— disrupting sleep patterns, affecting mental health, and increasing car accidents.
Whatever your feelings for daylight saving are, it is certainly a sign that spring is really on its way. What are you doing with your extra hour of daylight? Let us know by replying or quote tweeting this tweet
