You’re going to lose sleep this weekend.

Why? Because Sunday, March 11, marks the beginning of daylight saving time, taking away an hour of sleep Sunday morning.

At 2 a.m., the time on smartphones and other devices that automatically update will jump to 3 a.m.

Clocks and watches will have to be manually set to the correct time.

This jump was designed to use daylight more efficiently in the summer months.

That bright daylight that you have woken up to in recent weeks will become daylight later in the day.

In many parts of the world, the spring forward is called “Summer Time.”

The move also helps save energy, keeping homes from using lights later in the day.

I don’t get a whole lot of sleep, and losing that hour hurts.”

— Justin Alarie, freshman

However, the move can disrupt your body’s Circadian rhythm, the keeping of natural time cycles.

This can lead to drowsiness at different times of the day and loss of sleep.

Freshman Justin Alarie believes the jump forward is a hassle.

“I don’t get a whole lot of sleep, and losing that hour hurts,” Alarie said. “It doesn’t seem very necessary.”
