    The time change takes several weeks to make my body used to it. It is light SOOOO early at it’s peak and then later when the time changes back it is dark at 5pm. The body just hates it and I often wake to early in the summer and too late in the winter than I should.

  2. Sherie March 6, 2015 at 1:54 am -

    Hmm, I really don’t have too much trouble with adjusting, I guess after 47 years I’m just used to it! 🙂 For a few days after the change I do stop and think what time it “should” be, though.

  3. Stacy Renee March 6, 2015 at 2:10 am -

    In the past I would be sure to change my clocks and deal with less sleep but now I have a newborn and get less sleep so I don’t think it will affect me much.

  4. Sue M. March 6, 2015 at 2:51 am -

    I love Daylight Savings Time, it’s nice to have longer days and not getting dark until later on (7-8 p.m. or so)!

  5. Sue M. March 6, 2015 at 2:51 am -

    I love Daylight Savings Time, it’s nice to have longer days and not getting dark until later on!

  6. tiffany f March 6, 2015 at 3:04 am -

    Daylight savings doesn’t really have an affect on my family. I am a stay at home mom, my daughter is a toddler and my husband is the type that runs best off little or no sleep. We might stay up at bit later but it doesn’t bother us much.

  7. Donna Martin March 6, 2015 at 6:00 am -

    Nap wisely. Try to resist the urge to take long naps late in the day…

  8. Janet W. March 6, 2015 at 7:05 am -

    I adjust by going to bed earlier! I’m excited for it to be lighter outside for longer!

  9. Sherry-Lynne K March 6, 2015 at 7:06 am -

    I usually just go to bed early if it’s when we lose an hour of sleep. A nice easy reset for the next day! 🙂

  10. Patricia Walker March 6, 2015 at 7:07 am -

    I always look forward to the daylight savings coming into effect – particularly the Spring one as it tells us we’re heading into the better weather and hopefully warmer temperatures!

  11. Anastasia Falling March 6, 2015 at 7:11 am -

    It doesn’t affect me too much, so I just roll with the change. I think daylight savings is old fashioned tho’ and would love to see them do away with it altogether 🙂

  12. Samantha L. March 6, 2015 at 7:12 am -

    I adjust pretty quickly to daylight saving time. It’s a sign winter is almost over!

  13. stacey dempsey March 6, 2015 at 7:17 am -

    I just go to bed as usual and just deal with either getting up earlier or this nice one when you get to sleep an hour longer

  14. Anne Burner March 6, 2015 at 7:18 am -

    I deal with the time change by going to bed as if I’m going to work the next day, so I minimize the lost hour. Plus I take it easy through the day so I don’t overtire myself.

  15. Aaron Shapiro March 6, 2015 at 7:23 am -

    I work nights. I like the time change when it means I go to sleep when it’s still dark. I don’t when it means it’s going to be even brighter out!

  16. Mollie Katie March 6, 2015 at 7:30 am -

    I deal with daylight savings time by setting it a night earlier, when I go to bed on Friday night, so I have the whole weekend to adjust. It definitely makes me less likely to be out of sorts come Monday morning. (I’m not a morning person on the best of days!)

  17. John Thomas March 6, 2015 at 7:30 am -

    The only adjustment for me is changing the clocks.

  18. Gail Rosenstrom March 6, 2015 at 7:31 am -

    I hate daylight savings time! We try to go to bed an hour earlier but it doesnt help. Its takes 2 weeks until we are completely used to it LOL

  19. Stephanie March 6, 2015 at 7:34 am -

    I take the time change with a grain of salt. I don’t like them because as soon as I get caught up on lost sleep it’s time to change the clocks again!

  20. Jackie March 6, 2015 at 7:34 am -

    I try to go to bed at my regular time to get my body use to the time change.

  21. Cindy merrill March 6, 2015 at 7:36 am -

    Well, we adjust our clocks, but it’s not easy, due to the fact our routine schedules get messed up.

  22. Heather in VA March 6, 2015 at 7:40 am -

    I don’t deal very well with the time change. I just try to go on with life as normal.

  23. Karen March 6, 2015 at 7:50 am -

    I love the time change no more darkness at 5:00pm…so much more energy at the end of the day and spring is coming

  24. Jennifer Rote March 6, 2015 at 7:51 am -

    I don’t do anything special. Just adjust the clocks and live with it.

  25. kathleen viviano March 6, 2015 at 7:52 am -

    sorry to say it but I make sure I sleep in late on the first day of dst

  26. Kirsten Deacon March 6, 2015 at 7:53 am -

    Hi. I live in Rural Alaska and with all of the darkness in the winter and the sunlight in the summer – the time change really doesn’t effect me! Guess I’m just flat out lucky!!

  27. beth j March 6, 2015 at 7:59 am -

    No daylight savings in AZ. I think it would be great. Weird that we are the only hold out do not understand why.

  28. Theresa Thomas March 6, 2015 at 8:04 am -

    I don’t adjust quickly 🙁 it takes me close to a month to get used to it.

  29. Morgana DeLarge March 6, 2015 at 8:06 am -

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway! 🙂

  30. Heather D March 6, 2015 at 8:30 am -

    Well, I try to adjust my habits a few days BEFORE the time change, like going to bed 1 hour before/later. It seems to help most of the time. I also tend to work a lot of 3rd shifts during the change, which makes it easier.

  31. Mishelle March 6, 2015 at 8:35 am -

    I do not deal well with it, I try to go to bed earlier for a few days before it so I can get used to the loss of sleep but life happens and I never get enough sleep – so next week I will exist on caffeine till it levels out. It’s the kids I feel bad for, they don’t get caffeine and are very grouchy till they get used to it.


  32. Cheryl Rogers March 6, 2015 at 8:40 am -

    The time change usually works in my favor, it makes me be more of an early bird. It usually does make me sleepier that week though.

  33. Melissa M March 6, 2015 at 8:40 am -

    I love Springing forward!

  34. Lesley F March 6, 2015 at 8:42 am -

    The time change has never bothered me. I will enjoy when it stays lighter longer

  35. Karen Giasson March 6, 2015 at 8:42 am -

    I just sleep in on the Sunday that we change the clocks forward. My body adjusts pretty fast.

  36. karen lynn March 6, 2015 at 8:45 am -

    I don’t make any changes I just go with the flow

  37. Renee Smith March 6, 2015 at 8:46 am -

    It usually doesn’t affect me too much nice I never get enough sleep as it is with my kids waking me up all the time, lol. It does seem like it takes my youngest a few days to get back on a schedule.

  38. Erin Hussman March 6, 2015 at 9:01 am -

    We will adjust or schedule a little bit each day so by the end of the week it balances out.

  39. Melinda Stephens March 6, 2015 at 9:03 am -

    My son ignores daylight savings time and I just sleep when he does, so it doesn’t make a difference to me. I am sure that will change when he is older.

  40. kath g March 6, 2015 at 9:11 am -

    There is no choice except to adapt,either gain or lose a little sleep, so I do. I don’t do anything special. Personally, I wish they’d do away with it.

  41. Diana March 6, 2015 at 9:20 am -

    I just move the clocks forward before bed so I don’t forget the next day and I don’t even tend to notice that I lost an hour.

  42. Carol Johnson March 6, 2015 at 9:30 am -

    I just enjoy it, nice having the longer days.

  43. Maureen March 6, 2015 at 9:31 am -

    It always takes me sometime to adjust to when we spring forward. You miss an hour of sleep.

  44. Dawn Monzu March 6, 2015 at 10:00 am -

    Honestly, it has never really affected me. Well…back when I was in school I didn’t like having to get up an hour earlier! So I would just drink some coffee or something. Now they have all kinds of energy drinks!

  45. Karen B. March 6, 2015 at 10:01 am -

    I just make the adjustment & eventually it works out.

  46. Laurie P March 6, 2015 at 10:02 am -

    The time change doesn’t really affect us too much. One of us will get a little cranky, then it passes and all is well again.

  47. Kathleen March 6, 2015 at 10:16 am -

    This year will be easy – I’m not working anymore, so I can just sleep later in the morning.

  48. Jessica D March 6, 2015 at 10:22 am -

    We try to get to bed earlier the night before. But usually that doesn’t happen and we’re forced to adjust

  49. Barbara Platt March 6, 2015 at 10:23 am -

    I may just sleep all day

  50. Jo-Ann Brightman March 6, 2015 at 10:28 am -

    I don’t like losing the hour. You are not really gaining light . The days are naturally becoming longer
    , so,why mess up the clock -both mine and the actual one.

  51. Erika W. March 6, 2015 at 10:37 am -

    I don’t really have a problem adjusting. I sleep with black out curtains anyway so it’s not like I can tell any difference while still in my room.

  52. Lori Jackson March 6, 2015 at 10:41 am -

    It takes alot for my 4yr old to adjust. Sleeping pattern gets jolted. Takes a few weeks to get back on schedule.

  53. Tamala March 6, 2015 at 11:25 am -

    I (try to) go to bed a little earlier the night before, and/or take a short nap the day after!

  54. Gabrielle Compolongo March 6, 2015 at 11:32 am -

    I go to sleep at the same time, it never really affects me!

  55. beverly paquin March 6, 2015 at 11:36 am -

    i don’t react to the time changes. it is what it is.

  56. Lulubelle March 6, 2015 at 11:39 am -

    Daylight savings time doesn’t really bother me, although I prefer gaining an hour as opposed to losing one. I don’t care for how dark it gets in the winter at such an early time, but OTOH love how late it stays light in the summer.

  57. Pam H. March 6, 2015 at 11:45 am -

    I find it easier to adjust when we set clocks back in the fall than forward in the spring. I try to set them back ahead of time and not dwell on the fact that I “lost” an hour.

  58. Jeanne Melanson March 6, 2015 at 11:45 am -

    It doesn’t bother me one way or the other. It just is. 🙂

  59. Dianne Arsenault March 6, 2015 at 11:47 am -

    Go to bed a bit earlier on Sunday night

  60. Pam V H March 6, 2015 at 11:49 am -

    My schedule is pretty loose, so I don’t have any problems adjusting. The hardest part about springing forward is how my cat thinks it is time to be fed NOW and not one hour from now!

  61. Shannon March 6, 2015 at 12:00 pm -

    It doesn’t bother me too much.

  62. kelly mcgrew March 6, 2015 at 12:02 pm -

    i wake up at the same time; i don’t let it affect me much!

  63. Maria March 6, 2015 at 12:33 pm -

    The time change doesn’t bother us too much now that we don’t have babies anymore. I just go to bed a little earlier for a night or two and that usually does the trick 🙂

  64. lisa March 6, 2015 at 12:34 pm -

    I think daylight savings time is stupid.I honestly don’t know why people can’t leave things alone. We managed to survive without it.

  65. laurie allen March 6, 2015 at 12:42 pm -

    I adjust fine in a day, but I keep saying to myself… it would really be ___ time. That part drives me nuts. Takes a couple weeks to stop doing that.

  66. Kay Moser March 6, 2015 at 12:49 pm -

    I don’t like the time changes because they disrupt my sleep habits. By the time I get used to springing forward it will be time to fall back again.

  67. Dorothy Hubbard March 6, 2015 at 1:29 pm -

    Yes we spring forward. It takes a few days to adjust but you finally adjust to losing that hour. Monday is the hardest, so I go to bed earlier than ususal.

  68. amy guillaume linderman March 6, 2015 at 1:47 pm -

    i sit by my verilux happy light to soak in some artificial sunshine

  69. D.Petch March 6, 2015 at 1:53 pm -

    Even though I will lose a precious hour of sleep, I am looking forward to more daylight!

  70. Annette March 6, 2015 at 2:05 pm -

    I don’t adjust well, but since I don’t work outside the home and don’t have kids to get to school, I can gradually ease into it.

  71. N Bear March 6, 2015 at 2:06 pm -

    I grew up in the only province in Canada that didn’t change, and I now live in one of the only states in the US that doesn’t change. In between I lived in a place where I did have DST, and it was annoying. I missed several deadlines/events over the years because I couldn’t get used to remembering to change the clocks. I love not having to worry, and I find it annoying that I have to try to calculate the time difference between me and family members in other places when I want to call them.

  72. TAMMY CUEVAS March 6, 2015 at 2:30 pm -

    It always takes me at least a week to adjust to the time change. I think life would be much easier if they would do away with it.

  73. Pam C. March 6, 2015 at 2:35 pm -

    I have no problem adjusting to this time change. I just take advantage of the extra light hours in the evening. I love them!

  74. Gayle J March 6, 2015 at 2:46 pm -

    I have never had a problem adjusting to time change.

  75. Laura West March 6, 2015 at 2:55 pm -

    The only way it’s affected me was needing to remember to change the clocks. Otherwise I don’t ever notice.

  76. Robin Creager March 6, 2015 at 3:03 pm -

    I go to bed early to make sure I have plenty of sleep. Other then that my body adjusts pretty well to the time changes.

  77. Beth M. March 6, 2015 at 3:04 pm -

    I definitely deal by changing my clocks. Emotional handling of the time changes just take time.

  78. Shareen Mioskowski March 6, 2015 at 3:54 pm -

    I o not have much of a problem with the time changes, it is only an hour so it does not interfere with any activities.

  79. Karla Sceviour March 6, 2015 at 4:55 pm -

    it doesnt bother me one way or the other

  80. Kim Pinch March 6, 2015 at 5:47 pm -

    We go to bed an hour earlier.

  81. Cindy T. March 6, 2015 at 5:55 pm -

    I hate the time change! I try to go to sleep a little earlier until I get adjusted to the time change. Thank you for the chance to win. 🙂

  82. DD March 6, 2015 at 5:57 pm -

    I just go to sleep a little earlier that night to make up for the lost hour. It’s not really a big deal to me.

  83. Billie R March 6, 2015 at 6:06 pm -

    It actually doesn’t bother me, I’m happy to have longer days!

  84. Jessica M. March 6, 2015 at 6:09 pm -

    It always seems to have little effect on me, but my kids notice it more- we do love the extra sunlight at the end of the day!

  85. Karen R March 6, 2015 at 6:30 pm -

    I do not deal with the time change well. It takes my body a week to adjust.

  86. Tammy Dalley March 6, 2015 at 6:33 pm -

    I have no trouble to adjusting to time change!!

  87. Cynthia P March 6, 2015 at 6:40 pm -

    For the past 2 decades I have lived in Arizona, where there is no time Daylight Savings time, and I love it. In the past, when I did have to change the clock every spring & fall, I remember it being very disconcerting, having (first) to remember when to change the time, and (second) having to get used to the change in bedtime and allowing enough time to sleep.

  88. Gizele March 6, 2015 at 6:45 pm -

    Time change is no big deal. You just sleep in a bit later for a few weeks and then back to normal.

  89. Leslie S. March 6, 2015 at 7:05 pm -

    I usually don’t have an issue with the time change. Of course my sleep patterns, etc, have always been wonky so I’m used to it. 🙂

  90. Elizabeth March 6, 2015 at 7:09 pm -

    The time change doesn’t really effect me that much. I’m not real fond of losing an hour of sleep, but it is nice having more evening sunshine :)t

  91. Angela SC March 6, 2015 at 7:38 pm -

    Because I am on disability,I usually don’t have much of an issue adjusting,especially when I know the days are getting longer.More sunshine =more happy 🙂

  92. Meg A March 6, 2015 at 8:31 pm -

    I don’t really do anything special for daylight savings, maybe just go to bed early the night before.

  93. Kim March 6, 2015 at 9:17 pm -

    The time change has never really bothered me. The most frustrating part for me is remembering to change my clocks. It usually takes a good month or two for all of my clocks to be reset.

  94. Rhonda W G. March 6, 2015 at 9:26 pm -

    I am very happy about the time change this weekend. Bring on Spring I say!

  95. Suzie M March 6, 2015 at 9:51 pm -

    I would be happy to not change the time, its always hard on the little guys

  96. Claire Y. March 6, 2015 at 11:58 pm -

    Generally, the time changes don’t bother me too much. It’s nice to have a little more light, but that’s about it.

  97. Melly March 7, 2015 at 7:50 am -

    I drink some Sleepytime tea and go to bed a little earlier. Usually works!

  98. Betul E. March 7, 2015 at 7:50 am -

    I dont do anything different, after a day or two I’ll be adjusted to it

  99. erica ardali March 7, 2015 at 11:59 am -

    I just remember to reset my clocks and alarms, put my girl panties on and deal with it. 🙁

  100. shandie March 7, 2015 at 1:06 pm -

    the time doesn’t matter to me, i can sleep any time so i’m used to it 🙂

  101. niki petersen March 7, 2015 at 2:27 pm -

    I start about a week in advance and try to go to bed about 15-20 minutes early every night. I have noticed it does help a little so the time change doesnt completely throw me off.

  102. Dana Truitt March 7, 2015 at 3:33 pm -

    The only thing that bothers me about DLS is the loosing an hour of sleep. I swear I really feel it, or my body does…lol!

  103. Lindsey March 7, 2015 at 4:10 pm -

    It’s on a Sunday so I just sleep longer.

  104. Jan Hall March 7, 2015 at 8:30 pm -

    I wish we could get rid of all the time change. I love springing forward because when I go to town I don’t have to drive home in the dark.

  105. Catherine Haynes March 8, 2015 at 12:42 pm -

    I set my clocks ahead before I go to bed on Saturday and pay for losing the hour of sleep for weeks.

  106. Cheryl Larimer March 8, 2015 at 1:09 pm -

    I just go with it – it takes me a few days to get into the new routine but I always manage to get through it.

  107. Julie L March 8, 2015 at 8:38 pm -

    We use blackout curtains and have our kids go to bed 15 min earlier for a few days.

  108. Cathi Crismon March 8, 2015 at 8:51 pm -

    I’m actually not affected by daylight savings. I guess I’m lucky although I do get jet lag when flying. I suppose its a trade-off.

  109. Alison March 8, 2015 at 9:44 pm -

    Usually I try to get an extra hour of sleep to make up for the time loss, but I forgot this time (and woke up far too early anyway, thanks insomnia) so I suspect I’ll be trying to catch up for a while!

  110. Lisa Kubin March 8, 2015 at 10:17 pm -

    I hate DST I wish they would do away with it. It takes days for me and my family to adjust to the changes.
