Here's How Daylight
Saving Time Affects
Your Health Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, November 3 at 2:00 a.m. This means we gain a
full hour of sleep. But just as losing an hour of sleep in spring can affect one's health, so can gaining an hour in fall. After losing an hour of
daylight due to setting clocks
back to standard time, a Danish study published in the journal 'Epidemiology'
found an 11 percent increase in depression in subjects. An Australian study found
that male suicide rates
increased after both the
spring and fall time changes. Despite the affect of depression symptoms,
such as seasonal affective disorder,
getting more sleep is still
better for one's health. According to a Swedish study published in the
'New England Journal of Medicine,' heart attack rates fell on the Monday after
setting the clocks back to standard time. During the spring time change,
heart attack rates rise. Don't forget to fall back and utilize
that extra hour of sleep!
