Expert Available – “Springing Forward” for Daylight Saving TimeAmerican Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM)
If the month of March has you dreading the night when we “spring forward” to daylight saving time, you’re not alone. More than half of Americans say they’re tired after the time change, and 63% of Americans say that they support the elimination of seasonal time changes in favor of a national, fixed, year-round time. According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, research supports public opposition to seasonal time changes, and sleep science suggests that permanent standard time is the best option.
According to a recent survey from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, 85% of U.S. adults do not get the recommended seven hours or more of sleep every night. With the new year comes the opportunity for Americans to reset habits to include making healthy sleep a priority.
