This weekend,  Daylight Saving Time will begin.

We get that all-important extra hour of daylight at the expense of that even more important hour of sleep Saturday night.  Don't forget to set your clock ahead one hour Saturday night before you go to bed.  Daylight  Saving Time actually kicks in officially at 2 am Sunday.

Since 2007,  Daylight Saving Time begins on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.  While one-third of Americans say they "dread" having to turn the clock forward,  half of those responding to a survey by Sleeps mattresses think they've found the answer to post-DST sluggishness.

They favor moving the time change from 2 am Sunday morning to 2 am Saturday morning,  a shift that would theoretically soften the Monday morning "clock shock" that many will feel  this March 14th.

This weekend,  Daylight Saving Time will begin.

Four out of 10 say they'll begin preparing for the clock change a week ahead of time.

And, most are willing to take steps for the sake of sleep:

  • 64  percent would give up TV or entertainment for better and more zzz's.
  • 16 percent would sacrifice sex for slumber, with far more women (20 %)  than men  (12%)  favoring sleep over more amorous activities.
