Daylight saving time begins Sunday, but is it worth it?

Don’t forget to set your clocks forward one-hour on Sunday, March 10 because of daylight saving time.

Some welcome the time change since it gives us more daylight during the evening hours, but others believe it has negative side effects.

According to a 2009 study published by the American Psychological Association, changing to daylight saving time can cut into sleep and increases workplace injuries.

Some places have decided to completely end daylight saving time all together and just stick with one standard time throughout the year.

The Uniform Time Act allows states to opt out of observing daylight saving time—and remain on standard time—without any federal oversight, and some states and U.S. territories have long chosen this option, according to an article in National Geographic.

We’d like to ask our readers: do you welcome the time change, or do you wish we could stay on one standard time all year? Sound-off in the comments section of this article, or visit our Facebook and Twitter pages to interact with us.
