Daylight Savings Coming to an End For the Year in November


Natalie Scott, Staff Writer

When does daylight savings occur?

It starts Sunday March 13th, 2022, and will end Sunday November 6th, 2022.

How much sleep do we either gain or lose?

You lose 1 hour and then gain one hour.

How does only gaining 1 hour of sleep benefit us? Let us take a closer look at why. Usually in March during Daylight Savings time, losing an hour can cause moodiness and sometimes even heart problems. It can also be hard adjusting to waking up earlier even though you may not realize it. Although on November 6th, gaining an hour of sleep and can improve your mood and regulate sleeping changes.

Here are some tips on how to benefit from daylight savings:

You can start to gradually go to bed at an earlier time each night. Nap throughout the day to give you some extra sleep. Do not consume much caffeine before bedtime-otherwise it will keep you up at night.

(The end of Daylight Savings time is coming up, meaning we will soon gain an extra hour of sleep!)
