Sooooo, How Is Day 1 of Daylight Saving Time Working Out For You?

Pushing the clock ahead an hour may make it so the sun isn’t rising at 4:30 in the morning on the start of summer, but for the most part, Daylight Saving Time isn’t all that great for our health, according to experts.
**Before you start reading…I have to laugh at the vid I posted.  It’s called how to fall asleep in 2 minutes, and it’s 7 and a half minutes long.  HA!**
Studies say shifting the body’s clock puts people at risk for lots of issues, including cardiac events, miscarriages, and even car wrecks.
Heart attacks jump 24 percent on the Monday following the switch to DST, as well as workplace injuries, which rise 5.7 percent.
One study found that the change could affect fertility, increasing the chances of having a miscarriage for weeks after the clock change. Same goes for fatal car accidents, which are up for six days after springing forward.
How do you ward off the effects of the clock change? Are you a fan of Daylight Saving Time? Why?
