Time to Fall Back – Tonight Marks the End of Daylight Saving Time

When Does Daylight Saving Time End in 2019, and Do I Lose or Gain an Hour?

On March 10th we set our clocks forward one hour.  Luckily, on Sunday, November 3rd at 2:00am we will set our clocks back one hour and regain the hour of sleep that we lost in March.  Daylight Saving Time ends and Standard Time begins.  Remember to move your clock back by one hour before going to sleep tonight so you can take full advantage of that extra hour. If not, you may find yourself showing up to church or the football game an hour early.

It’s easy to remember whether you lose or gain and hour by thinking of Daylight Saving this way:

  • In the spring, you spring forward by moving the clock ahead an hour
  • In the fall, you fall back and move the time on the clock back by one hour

It’s also wise to get into the habit of checking and/or changing your smoke & carbon monoxide alarm batteries at the beginning and end of Daylight Saving Time each year.

Anything Special People with Visual Impairments Should Know?

How does the change in time affect people who are blind or with low vision?  There has not been a great deal of research regarding time changes.  However, the deprivation of sight does cause a disruption in the wake-sleep cycle for some people.  You can read more about visual impairments and circadian rhythm disorders from the National Institute of Health.
