Why do we have Daylight Saving Time? At 2 a.m. last night, we turned our clocks forward one hour, marking the beginning of Daylight Saving Time (DST). Switching over to daylight saving time, and losing one hour of sleep, raised the risk of having a heart attack the following Monday by 25 percent, compared to other Mondays during the year, according to a new U.S. study. So, why does it still continue?
Try convincing your cat that it’s bedtime, when he can see the evening sun streaming through the window. Turning out the light is a key part of going to sleep. Pulling down the blackout shades just isn’t the same thing. I hate… I hate… I *hate* DST!
