On November 7th most smart devices will automatically set us up without touching a button. Did you know that the average person doesn’t know why we push forward and fall back, for daylight savings?  Time changes in the United States has been used to give farmers more time to harvest and plant their crops. There’s something called the Sunshine Protection Act of 2021 to make daylight saving time permanent.

Although it was meant to save energy and help farmers, it affects every person differently. Time changes has been shown to affect our health both physically and mentally. For instance, during daylight savings in the autumn months studies show it causes reductions in sleep and cardiac issues like, stroke, cortisol production, and vehicular accidents. Thank goodness with a little adjustment, our sad state of less light will pass over as our bodies start to go along with the program.  It’s been an ongoing debate for the past 5 years, is saving energy or mental and physical health more important. What do you think about Daylight Savings time?
