Spring Forward with Confidence: Your Guide to Daylight Saving Time 2024 and a Landscaping Spring Cleaning Boost!

It's that time again! On Sunday, March 10th, 2024, at 2:00 AM, most of the United States will spring forward, setting the clocks ahead by one hour as Daylight Saving Time (DST) begins. While some may relish the extra hour of daylight in the evening, the time change can disrupt sleep patterns and cause temporary confusion.

Preparing for the Time Change and a Spring Cleanup:

Here are some tips to help you and your family adjust smoothly to Daylight Saving Time:

  • Adjust your sleep schedule gradually: In the days leading up to the time change, start going to bed and waking up 15-30 minutes earlier each day. This will help your body adjust to the new schedule.

  • Embrace the sunshine: Spend time outdoors in the natural light in the morning and evening. This will help regulate your circadian rhythm, which influences your sleep-wake cycle.

  • Dim the lights at night: Avoid using electronic devices like phones and laptops in the hour before bed. The blue light emitted by these devices can interfere with sleep.

  • Maintain a consistent sleep routine: Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day, even on weekends. This will help your body stay on track.

  • Be patient: It can take a few days to fully adjust to the time change. Be patient with yourself and your family as you transition to the new schedule.

  • Plan outdoor activities: Take advantage of the extra daylight to spend time outdoors in your newly cleaned yard, whether it's going for a walk, gardening, or playing sports.

  • Start a new hobby: Use the extra hour to learn a new skill, read a book, or spend time with loved ones.

  • Get enough sleep: Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night, regardless of the time change.


  • While most of the United States observes DST, some states and territories do not. Be sure to check your local time zone regulations if you're unsure.

  • If you have any concerns about how the time change might affect you, it's always a good idea to talk to your doctor.
