It might take a day or two to adjust to Daylight Saving Time. But most people say it doesn’t mess with their sleep long term . . .
83% of Americans in a new poll said springing forward DOESN’T affect how much they sleep. Only 6% said they get less sleep because of it, and 10% sleep more.
Three in four also said they get the same amount of work done in a day. Again, just 6% feel less productive now that the sun sets later . . . and 19% get MORE done.
Over 7 in 10 people say changing the clocks twice a year doesn’t really affect them much . . . but that doesn’t mean we like it.
54% want to do Daylight Saving Time all year . . . 19% prefer Standard Time . . . and 27% want to keep the current system of changing the clocks twice a year.
Parents are more likely to prefer the current system. 1 in 3 like adjusting the clocks, compared to 1 in 4 people who don’t have kids.
(A separate poll found people out West HATE springing forward the most, followed by the Midwest and the South. The Northeast hates it least.)
