It's inevitable, it's going to happen whether you like it or not, but this time change is the good kind of time change because when Daylight Saving Time comes to an end, you're going to get an extra hour of sleep. This is something that I know that all of us could use!

Heading into the office over the past couple of weeks and driving east towards the sun, I have noticed it's further to the south than it had been just a few short weeks ago. Then on the drive home in the evening, I'm noticing that it's getting darker sooner and that means that Daylight Saving Time is coming to an end.

Daylight Saving Time will officially end on Sunday, November 6th at 2 a.m.

At that time you should set your clock back one hour and hopefully it won't be like 'Groundhog Day' and relive the same hour all over again! Or you can simply set your clock back one hour when you go to bed.

Time change seems to be more of an inconvenience to us because our sleep patterns are interrupted in addition to changing our clocks. You don't realize how many clocks you have at home until you have to reset them because of Daylight Saving Time or if you lose power. Thankfully our smart technology will do most of the time changing for us, but we're still left with our alarm clocks, the microwave, coffee maker, sometimes the oven and various other appliances around the house.

So why do we observe Daylight Saving Time?

Adjusting for time dates back to 1918 and World War I to allow people to take advantage of an extra hour of daylight in the summer rather than have to use electricity for lights. Daylight Saving Time had a rough start as some areas observed it while others didn't. It was re-established during World War II with President Woodrow Wilson and after the war, some areas went back to not observing it. In 1966 Congress created the Uniform Time Act that established the changing of the clocks twice a year around seasonal changes.

In addition to changing your clock, you should replace these items at the same time.

You should take the time to replace the batteries in your smoke alarms and CO2 monitors in your home and test them as you adjust your clocks.

Just rejoice in the fact that you're going to get an extra hour of sleep on Sunday, November 6th when we all 'fall back'!
