Daylight Savings time occurs in the month of March. We shift our clocks forward and lose an hour of sleep. Moving clocks forward for Daylight Savings occurred March 11, 2018 at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado.
According to National Transportation Safety Board, “Traffic accidents increase during this time.” When we lose an hour of sleep, we lose mental restoration, also known as Rapid Eye Movement sleep. This loss causes us to be prone to behavioral changes, such as, slower reaction times, irritability, memory loss, fatigue, and more.
