Get ready to spring forward. At 2 a.m. Sunday, March 9, our clocks will move ahead by one hour with the beginning of daylight time.

Commonly called daylight saving time, it’s a sure bet spring isn’t far behind … we hope.

The one-hour change may affect some residents, causing us to be sleepy or drag through Monday morning. Planning ahead can help alleviate that feeling – go to bed a little bit earlier Saturday and Sunday. By Monday morning, if you can soak up some early morning sunlight, your body may be tricked into an early adjustment to the time change, according to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Standard time returns Sunday, Nov. 2, when clocks will be turned back one hour.
