Daylight saving time starts this weekend

Remember to set your clocks an hour forward when you go to bed Saturday night

Let's hope that 2018 is the a year ago we lose an hour of sleep to "save" an hour of sunlight at the end of the day. The clocks roll forward on Sunday at 2 a.m. due to Daylight savings time.

Opponents say ending daylight saving time would get rid of what many enjoy the most about it - extra time in the evening when it's still light outside.

Another argument for daylight saving time is that it's standard across the world, only half the world's countries use it, reports Forbes.

If some Florida lawmakers have their way, you might never have to adjust your clocks to "spring forward" again.

Emad Estemalik, M.D., a headache specialist at Cleveland Clinic, said losing an hour of sleep can bring misery for people who struggle with migraine headaches.

The clock-moving has also been shown to correlate with negative health effects, as strokes and heart attacks increase in the days following the clock change.

What states do not have daylight savings time?

Daylight saving time was first enacted during World War 1 on March 19, 1918 as way to conserve coal, according to USA Today, though it was halted later that year. During Daylight Saving Time, the sun sets one hour later in the evenings, so the need to use electricity for household lighting and appliances is reduced.

"We already have to accommodate the Georgia time change", he said. Hawaii, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the United States Virgin Islands have all sought and received exemptions. If signed, the "Sunshine Protection Act" would require Congressional action to officially move from standard time to DST, doing away with the twice-yearly clock change in the state.

Why was Daylight Saving Time Created?

Daylight Saving Time was initially enacted to save energy.

Hawaii: The state was one of first to opt out of the Uniform Time Act in 1967, per Time magazine.
