The recommended amount of sleep for the average adult is around nine hours, but many Americans will only get eight hours come early Sunday morning. That’s because Daylight Saving Time begins at 2:00 a.m. Sunday.
Hoosiers should set their clocks one hour ahead before going to bed Saturday night.
Daylight Saving Time springs the clock forward one hour to get the most out of the sunlight hours. As summer approaches, the sun begins to rise earlier and earlier oftentimes before most people have the chance to wake up. DST works to recapture that extra hour of sunlight for business and pleasure.
Not all of the United States observes DST, though. The time won’t change in Hawaii, parts of Arizona, Puerto Rico or in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
