Tick Tock

daylight-savingIt’s almost that time of year again – you’re about to lose an hour of your life! OK, not really – it’s just time to return to Daylight Saving. Sunday at 2am the clocks will leap forward an hour. And while for a few weeks it’ll be dark again when you get up in the morning, it’ll also stay lighter later when you get home at night. Which means spring and warmer temperatures can’t be far away!

This is also a great time to check the batteries in your smoke detector, carbon monoxide detector and flashlights so that you and your family will be prepared in case of an emergency. And you might want to make sure to take a nap Sunday afternoon – studies have shown that there is a spike in heart attacks the first week after Daylight Saving begins; many doctors believe this is due to the disruption of sleep patterns.
