Daylight saving time begins this weekend. Prepare to ‘spring forward.’

If you use your phone as an alarm clock, you get to skip this part, as the devices' clocks reset themselves.

And some research has even linked daylight saving time to certain heart problems, particularly for those who already are vulnerable.

The 10 top local news stories from metro Boston and around New England delivered daily. "Here in British Columbia no change is imminent, but we are closely following developments on the West Coast of the U.S".

One would move ME into the Atlantic Time Zone, which would mean the state would no longer set clocks back in fall.

It's always Daylight Saving Time. The sun rises and sets at the same time in Hawaii all year round, so it didn't make sense for them to employ the practice, per the report.

This year, daylight saving has fallen the Sunday before March Break, meaning kids will have a week to adjust their schedules before going back to school.

States that came around: In the past, Alaska, Michigan and In did not observe the time change. Some credit the seasonal time changes to scientist George Vernon Hudson and builder William Willett, who proposed shifting the clocks in 1895. Clocks will move back an hour on the first Sunday in November. At 2am, clocks are to be set forward an hour, meaning it'll jump from 2 in the morning, to 3am.

They'll get less sleep.

When Does Daylight Saving Time End?

. But you'll get the hour back this fall, November 3 to be exact.

"As we get ready to change our clocks and lose one hour of sleep on Sunday, we must be tired of the negative health effects of this practice", Chu said in a statement Friday.

What Is Daylight Saving Time?

. He argued the benefits of daylight hours, suggesting that it would help Parisians make more money. The practice fizzled out after the war until it was implemented again in World War II to save fuel and resources. It can help conserve energy because it stays light out later in the day and dark for more time while people are sleeping in the morning hours. Other European countries and the United States soon adopted it as well.

While it seems that some lawmakers may be ready to do away with annual time changes, any changes in legislation will come too late to affect this spring's leap forward.

Until April of 2010, Nuevo Vallarta and the state of Nayarit were one hour earlier than Puerto Vallarta and the state of Jalisco.

Therefore, in both states clocks will be turned forward 1 hour from 2:00 am to 3:00 am on April 7, 2019.

According to Insider Health, Daylight Saving Time has been linked to sleep deprivation, decreased mental health, increased suicide rates, increased cardiovascular conditions, and increases in auto accidents and workplace injuries.

I don't think it's a stretch to say that if NY makes the change, it could spur a number of states in the Northeast to follow suit. Health experts say there can also be some more serious consequences. The first daylight saving time happened in 1918, during World War 1.

How Does Daylight Saving Work in Florida and Arizona?

Roughly 70 nations worldwide observe daylight saving.

The study found positive effects in a number of industries but didn't go so far as to recommend making the change.
