Study after study has shown that the risks of heart attacks, accidents at work or in the car, even suicides increase following the change - risks usually not seen when we get an extra hour of sleep getting off Daylight Saving Time.
A lot of people in the CBD tell me that they think all this time changing is an unnecessary burden. "What I wish they'd do is roll the time forward a half an hour and leave it forever and ever," a downtown worker tells me, "To me the idea of Daylight Saving Time is antiquated."
As we turn the clocks ahead Sunday morning at 2AM other folks say they like the change to more daylight in the evening. And a bartender I talked to says she loves it when she gets to work an hour less that night.
Most Americans are already chronically sleep deprived, and many people told me downtown this just adds another burden. "I don't like it, I hate it. Especially because I'm already working seven days a week right now. So I'm about to lose another hour of much desired, valuable sleep."
Studies disagree with how long it takes people to get back on track, some say a few days to a week, although experts agree you can never truly make up lost sleep.
