Daylight Saving Time Ends – Sunday, November 4, 2018
On Sunday, November 4, 2018, 2:00:00 am clocks are turned backward 1 hour to Sunday, November 4, 2018, 1:00:00 am local standard time instead.
On Sunday, Canadians will be turning their clocks backward one hour to mark the end of Daylight Saving Time. It heralds the beginning shift into shorter daylight hours and a cooler season. On average, people can require a week to adjust to the time change.
Being tired can decrease productivity, concentration, and general well-being.
Here are some ways to make the clock change easier:
- Eat a healthy breakfast first thing. Food tells your body it is the start of the day.
- Increase your exposure to sunlight and physical activity during the day until late afternoon/early evening to help with the reduction of daylight hours.
- Help your child adjust by putting him or her to bed a little bit earlier the week before the time change.
- Drivers should be extra alert — pull over if you’re driving and feel drowsy. The only cure for sleepiness is sleep.
- Use this weekend as an opportunity to make home safety checks. Check and replace batteries in home smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
