As the days get longer and warmer, people begin to prepare for daylight saving time. Many look forward to the extra hour of daylight in the evenings, but some are not so excited about the annual time shift.

Sleep doctors at the American Academy of Sleep Medicine argue against daylight saving time, saying the twice-yearly adjustment can disrupt sleep schedules and lead to increased accidents and heart attacks. NBC Montana reports on the health impacts of the time shift and offers tips on how to adjust easier.

Despite the argument against daylight saving time, many people are looking forward to “springing forward” this weekend. 11Alive reminds its viewers to set their clocks ahead one hour at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 14, so they don’t miss any appointments or events.
