This weekend brings us the best and the worst of times, when we gain an extra hour of sleep and darkness too, thanks until the end of daylight saving time

Computers do most of the adjustments automatically these days, but if you have manual clocks or watches, remember to remind them by an hour The time officially returns to the standard at 2 a.m. on Sunday

The back and forth between standard time and daylight saving time has become a topic of debate in recent years, both in the US and abroad

More than 30 states have considered legislating to maintain a single hour (Arizona and Hawaii are the only states that do not observe daylight saving time, having broken ranks in the 1960s), and l ‘European Union was on the verge of taking action before more urgent issues like Brexit and the coronavirus pandemic sparked talks

Arguments against “jumping forward” and then “backing down” tend to boil down to “What’s the point?” and complaints about how the changes disrupt humans’ natural circadian rhythms

Arizona met the standard because people who live in a scorching heat state would prefer the sun to set earlier, reducing temperatures with it Hawaii has opted for daylight saving time because it is so full of sun it would be overkill to “save” that would be overkill Meanwhile, in Chicago, where darkness descends to 4 pm in the height of winter, standard time frequently triggers seasonal depression. p>

So where does that leave us? Another fall, another time change Take advantage of the extra hour this weekend hour, maybe use it to buy one of these light therapy boxes online, and we will surprise you next March
