Daylight Saving Time is almost here! This Sunday, March 14th, we will move our clocks forward as we move toward enjoying more daylight! Not happy about losing an hour of sleep? We don’t blame you. However, there are some benefits to Daylight Saving Time!
More Light Throughout the Day
The main benefit of Daylight Saving Time is that we will get to enjoy more light during the day! No more 5 pm sunsets, who doesn’t love that? That leaves you with more time to do the things you love, like walking the dog or going for a relaxing bike ride. Get out there and enjoy that extra sunshine!
Lowers Energy Costs
More natural light means fewer hours of the day we need to have our lights on in our homes. This allows you to open those blinds to let that sunshine in to brighten up your home! You’ll be glad you did when your electricity bill arrives.
Studies have shown that an increased amount of daylight has led to fewer accidents on the road. It also decreases the amount of crime. You may be losing an hour of sleep, but the increased safety is sure to make up for that!
Did you know that sunlight can even have a positive effect on our mood? When the body is exposed to sunlight it releases more of our “happy” hormone, or Serotonin as we know it. This leads to an overall increase in happiness, so with more sunlight throughout the day the only place for your mood to go is up!
