Can We Please Just End Daylight Savings Time?
I know I'm not alone when I say that that when we fall back and spring forward with the time each year, it messes with me. Just about everyone you talk to when the time changes happen will mention that it's been a rough week or three.
Daylight Savings Time was started to help with energy conservation. The idea being that they would be matching daylight hours with when most people are awake. It's 2021 now, and there have been many studies year after year that show the time change doesn't do much for energy savings.
Daylight Savings Time has shown to cause more seasonal depression in individuals, and even be the cause of increased traffic accidents. While there are negatives to playing the time change game, there are some positives too. Though from everything I've read, the bad doesn't outweigh the good.
Endaylightsavingtime.org has a mission to do exactly what their website is titled. Their mission to end DST is simple, to have one time year round, and have the later sunset all year round. Of course with all of the health benefits that come with that. Just think how much better you will feel and how much more active you will want to be, even if it's colder but the sun is still out when you get home from work. For me, I know I would benefit. The whole idea of going to work when it's dark and getting home when it's dark just makes for a much more dreary feeling day. That all being said, remember to set your clocks ahead one hour on Sunday, March 14th. Do you think we should put an end to Daylight Savings Time?
