Turning back your clock in the Fall isn't anything new for the masses but that lingering, subsequent affect afterward might take you by surprise.
For most, adhering to "Daylight Savings Time" and turning your clock back is simply taking down a few clocks around the house or reprogramming the digital dashboard in your car. For others, your inner clock has officially hit the snooze control and could lead to anything from a long span of lethargy to having to deal with others who are feeling exhausted with the time change, even if you're not.
So even if you're totally fine with "Daylight Savings Time," you still have to worry about the others who aren't quite as lucky.
Take driving for instance. Would be morning commuters might have a tendency to race to work since they've slept a little longer this morning or at least a few weeks after "Daylight Savings Time." That extra hour they earned when they "fell back" might have turned into more like a few hours every morning, thus making them prone to speed, weave in and out of traffic and thus make your trip to work much more stressful and potentially dangerous in the process.
"Daylight Savings Time," specifically turning your clock back, also can lead to migraines in some and increased fatigue as well. The simple idea behind gaining and hour of sleep disrupts your resting. That negative feeling is compounded by having to combat depression and sleepiness as it begins getting darker earlier. Nothing makes for a tiresome dinner than eating at the table with the sun already set.
