Time falls back one hour on Nov. 3, giving an extra hour for sleep on Sunday! But be sure to set your clocks back — otherwise you could be late for work on Monday! Keep reading for all you need to know about daylight saving time.
On Nov. 3, it’s time to set clocks back one hour to “spring forward, fall back,” as the saying goes. So what time do you need to set your clocks for?
Daylight Savings Time Ends Nov. 3
The time change will take place at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3.
If you want to be extra-careful, you can turn your clock back an hour before you go to bed on Nov. 2, or your clock will be an hour ahead when you wake up!
For smartphones and laptops, the change should occur automatically. Just make sure you set “automatic” date and time features on your digital devices.
However, to avoid any technical glitches, it may be a good idea to also set an alarm clock along with the alarm on your phone on Nov. 2 so you’re guaranteed to not wake up in a panic!
How To Prepare For Daylight Saving Time
You can get a head start on adjusting your biological clock to the time change easily! Just go to bed 15 minutes later than you normally would on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, and wake up 15 minutes later than you normally would on Nov. 1 and Nov. 2.
However, not everyone will be turning their clocks back! Arizona and Hawaii are two states that aren’t participating, since daylight saving time has to do with the weather — so your beauty sleep won’t suffer either way!
Daylight saving time was recommended in 1748 by Benjamin Franklin.
