Remember: Daylight saving time means turn clocks forward one hour

Daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday.  

The change to daylight saving time occurs Sunday morning, so remember to turn your clock one hour forward before going to bed Saturday night.

While the time change gives us an extra hour of daylight in the evening, it could make waking up early Sunday or Monday a bit more challenging.

“The one hour time change in spring can either go unnoticed or might make it a little more difficult to get to sleep for a night or two,” Dr. Sarah Zallek, sleep neurologist with the Illinois Neurological Institute, said. “Much like if you travel from Illinois to New York, which is one hour later, you might not feel quite as sleepy when the clock shows your usual bedtime that first night. But, the body’s internal clock adjusts about one time zone a day when we travel, and should take about the same time to adjust when we spring forward each year.”
