   Tom goes to work at 8 o’clock on the dot everyday and one day he arrives to find that he’s one hour late. This is the daylight savings aftermath.     

  Daylight saving occurs every year and often  changes people’s daily routine and schedule.

Daylight savings is when the light lasts for longer in the day and we also get an hour less of sleep.

  “Well sometimes I wake up earlier since it’s lighter outside or sleep in longer since it’s darker outside. I guess it affects my sleep schedule a little” says Maddison Leiser (12).

  “I’m tired the next day because we get less sleep–I go to bed later because it stays light for longer making me think that it is earlier in the day” says Anika Yoder (12).

  “I enjoy it because I feel like I get longer days which means more time to be productive and get things done” says Kelly Balaban (12).

  Some people however, enjoy the dark days and feel like when the night comes they have had a successful day.

  “I always love when it’s darker later because then I feel like I can just relax earlier and take a break from a stressful day” says Kayla Henry (10).

  Daylight saving can be confusing sometimes because a lot of clicks do not automatically change making people run late.

  “Sometimes I’ll look at my clock in the kitchen and I’ll think I have time but then I remember that it’s daylight savings and I have to hurry to get ready” says Maracelle Nasrat (12).

  A lot of people enjoy having their smart phones at this time because they usually automatically change to the correct time so if they get confused from a different clock, they can count on their smart phone.

  “I usually rely on my phone during daylight savings because it automatically changes so I just check it whenever I need” says Kendal Henry (11).

  Daylight savings is a event that most people do not mind even though some people prefer an earlier night time. The biggest problem remains the lack of sleep but people can quickly recover from it and go on with their day like they normally would.

  The lighter skies outside in the evening reminds us all of the sunny days ahead and the spring and summer seasons.
