Nanaimo Clocks Go Back One Hour - Nov. 3, 2013

Clocks Go BACK On November 3, 2013

This is the weekend you recover that hour of sleep you lost last spring when daylight saving time started. This weekend remember to turn your clocks BACK one hour when you go to sleep on Saturday night. If you don't you will be an hour early for work on Monday morning.

ICBC offers the following tips to help adjust to the time change:
  • Keep your regular sleep/wake cycle in step with your every day social rhythm. Go to bed at the same time you normally would and benefit from that extra hour of sleep.
  • Don’t assume you are more rested and alert on the road the mornings following the change. Studies have shown that the end of Daylight Savings Time can still have an impact on the quality of our sleep due to more nighttime restlessness.
  • Plan ahead for the darker, late afternoon commutes where there will be slower traffic flow, less visible pedestrians and cyclists and an even greater need to signal properly.
  • Prepare your vehicle for the change in conditions, particularly the darker evening commutes. Clean your vehicle’s headlights and check they are all working properly, especially your rear lights.
  • Closely monitor your mood in the fall and particularly during the DST change. Get some good sleep this weekend and drive smart.
