Should we go to year-round daylight saving time?

Posted March 09, 2018

Let's hope that 2018 is the past year we lose an hour of sleep to "save" an hour of sunlight at the end of the day.

Adopting Daylight Saving Time year-round would put Florida an hour ahead of states in the same time zone that set the clocks back from November until March.

The most common argument for keeping daylight saving time is that it positively manipulates the sense of daytime for most people.

We know it's coming every year, but that doesn't make springing forward any easier. Hawaii and most of Arizona are on standard time year-round.

The clocks on most smartphones and computers update automatically, which is wonderful for those of us who forget about the time change. If the detectors are more than 10 years old, officials say you should replace them.

This means that we lose (not gain) an hour when we turn our clocks ahead an hour to 3:00 a.m. when our clocks reach 2:00 a.m. on Sunday.

Some headache triggers - like the weather and Daylight Saving Time - can't be changed, but reducing exposure to triggers that are within our control, can help bring relief. The western province of Saskatchewan, which sits above Montana and North Dakota, lies on the part of the continent that typically observes Mountain Standard Time. That bill enacted the first observance of the time change, March 31, 1918.

U.S. Territories: Because of their location, a handful of U.S. territories have followed Hawaii's "we-already-have-plenty-of-sunshine" example and don't observe daylight saving time - Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, per Time.
