Don’t Forget To Turn Those Clocks Back

Don’t Forget To Turn Those Clocks Back

On November 5th approaches, Daylight Saving Time comes to an end. At 2 a.m. most Americans will set their clocks back one hour, making it 1 a.m. instead of 2. As we fall we lose that extra hour of sleep.

Did you know Benjamin Franklin invented Daylight Saving Time? Well actually the Founding Father proposed the idea of changing clocks to follow the sun in different seasons, but the official clock-changing policy wasn’t adopted in the U.S. until centuries later.

According to the sleep experts at Sleep Cycle Americans had mixed feelings about Daylight Saving last year.

On March 13, 2016 when we “sprung forward” and lost an hour of sleep Americans woke up the next morning in a worse mood. On November 6, 2016 when we “fell back” and gained an hour Americans woke up in a better mood than normal.

Sleep Cycle also found interesting information related to Daylight Saving effects on different cities:

March 13, 2016

  • San Francisco slept the best
  • Miami slept the worst
  • Miami got the least amount of sleep
  • Phoenix got the most sleep
  • Portland woke up in the worst mood
  • Phoenix woke up in the best mood

November 6, 2016

  • Denver slept the best
  • Miami slept the worst
  • San Antonio got the least amount of sleep
  • Minneapolis got the most sleep
  • Phoenix woke up in the worst mood
  • San Francisco woke up in the best mood

This information is based on 110,295 male and female Sleep Cycle alarm clock users, ages 18-74 years old, who voluntarily and anonymously shared their sleep data on March 13 and November 6 of 2016.
