Day Light Savings



 

On March 14, 2021, daylight saving time (DST) will begin, and everyone will set clocks forward by an hour in those regions that observe DST. These fall and spring clock changes continue a long tradition that Benjamin Franklin started to conserve energy. The United States officially started observing DST since 1966. American's set their clocks forward one hour at 2 a.m. on the second Sunday of March, resulting in one less hour of sleep that night. Then, at 2 a.m. on the first Sunday in November, American's set their clocks back one hour. Day ligth savings is often referred to as "Spring Forward, Fall Backward" because of the time these changes occur. Below are few lounge items that will keep you comfortable while you work on getting sleep cycle back to normal.
