'Sleep well tonight': How to prepare for Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time starts Sunday. Dan Gleiter

With about a dozen clocks to change, the process begins on the Friday before the time-change and can take a few days to complete. It was repealed a year later, then re-established during World War II, and finally standardized in 1966.

No time change is observed in Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.

There's legislation in Washington and several states to make Daylight Saving Time permanent - though it won't be called DST. "National PTA is opposed to daylight saving time during the winter months because of the safety factor", said Heidi May Wilson, spokeswoman for the National Parent Teacher Association.

"People tend to shop, dine out, and engage in commercial activities more in after-work daylight", the commission found. In 2007, the schedule was updated when we received an extra four weeks of daylight saving time thanks to the Energy Policy Act of 2005.

Initially, in Germany, the concept behind Daylight Saving Time was meant to help conserve energy. Canada and parts of Europe also observe DST, but it's called "summer time" across the pond. People also report feeling disoriented and unproductive.

"The challenge is to keep healthy sleep habits throughout the year, and this is the message for me that is the most important", Carrier, who is also the director of the Canadian Sleep and Circadian Network and a professor at the University of Montreal, said. But some states are moving to join Hawaii and most of Arizona to opt out of a system that was established more than 100 years ago. Two things are required before Californians can do away with daylight saving time altogether: a bill to pass the state Legislature and to obtain federal authorization through a majority vote in Congress, according to Annie Pham, a member of Chu's staff.

"The real reason that we want to stay in Daylight Saving Times is to save lives", he said.

As you set your microwaves oven and vehicle clocks ahead one hour this weekend, the sun-worshiping senators of the Sunshine State are hoping Sunday morning is the last time Floridians must spring forward for daylight saving time.

Senator Marco Rubio filed a bill to make it permanent nationwide.

One would move ME into the Atlantic Time Zone, which would mean the state would no longer set clocks back in fall.
