Day Light Saving Times

By:Madison Gelinger/Senior Writer

Have you noticed that you have been more tired recently? Well that might be thanks to daylight saving times. There are some pro and cons to daylight saving 


Some pros are it saves energy. During daylight saving time (or DST), the sun sets one hour later in the evenings, so the need to use electricity for household lighting and appliances is reduced. People tend to spend more time outside in the evenings during daylight saving time, which reduces the need to use electricity in the home. Another benefit is less artificial light one of the aims of DST is to make sure that people’s active hours coincide with daylight hours so that less artificial light is needed. Information from


Some cons are it can be bad for your health. Changing sleep patterns, even by one hour, goes against a person’s natural circadian rhythms and has some negative consequences on one’s sleep schedule. Another con is that it costs money. There is an extra cost in building DST support into computer systems and keeping them maintained. Information from


Legislation to make daylight saving time permanent passed the Senate last week, but the House is not ready to be a rubber stamp, spelling potential trouble ahead for its passage in the lower chamber. Do you think that this is a good idea? 


I dont think it’s a good idea because that means it will be very dark in the morning with the sun probably not even rising till around 8 am every morning.
