Although I like it to be lighter later, I find that daylight savings wreaks havoc on my whole family. We always get sick, we are overly tired, and it takes us about a week to get back into the flow of things. I even read somewhere that it is not good for the human brain to try and readjust to the time change.
I greatly dislike it. It takes me over a week to not feel "off" somehow. I'm in central Indiana so we stayed on the same time my whole life up until a few years ago when someone got the bright idea to change it here too. : /
Daylight savings has affected my relationship with my preschooler. It has been a fight every morning to get him up and out the door for me to go to work and him to go to school. Bedtime has also been a problem, he is still running around and not tired yet. Next year we are starting the new schedule 2 weeks ahead of time instead of 3 days.
1. It has horridly affected my sleeping patterns.
2. I work longer hours (which is find considering I get great pay for just editing).
3. Since it is day more, I have more energy, at least it seems like I do.
I absolutely love daylight savings time. I always feel better when we are back on this time schedule. I like it when it remains lighter later in the evening. It's just what I like the most about it.
I forgot about it. My phone and computer have yet to adjust so I've been a hour late to everything since Sunday.
Other than dropping off the kids late to school and arriving to work late, it hasn't effected me much!
I'm with Kathleen. I love it. Winter darkness depresses the heck out of me, and the extra sunshine is such a joy! Plus, I have horrible insomnia, so now I wake up at 3am instead of 2am. Bonus. Now if I could just remember to change the clock in my car, everything would be golden.

Which do you prefer, "Spring forward" or "Fall backwards"?Personally, I love "Spring forward" as I get to drive my commute home after work during the daylight! Plus, after I get home, I can walk my dog during the daylight! Eventually, I will get to spend...

Don't forget to Spring Forward before going to bed tonight! Should we cancel Daylight Savings Time?Yes, it's that time of year again to lose an hour's sleep. Well, to be honest, I wish I could Spring Forward and never Fall Backwards again! For me, I love the extended daylight hours,...
