Clocks spring forward every second March of the year in the United States, shifting the dawns early light break later than it has during the months of standard time. 

The shift occurs each year at 2 a.m every second Sunday of March, which falls on March 13, 2022. Clocks will “fall back” into standard time on the first Sunday of November. 

No time change is observed in Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Marianas

Daylight saving time means later sunsets for the months ahead. One hour may seem like a small adjustment, but it can cause sleep disruptions that may reduce one’s quality and quantity of sleep according to research. 

A poll conducted in 2019 showed that over 2,000 adults in the U.S. were asked their level of exhaustion after daylight savings was initiated, and  55 percent of respondents said they felt extremely or somewhat tired.

Last October, a poll conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that most Americans want to avoid switching between daylight saving and standard time, though there is no consensus behind which should be used all year.

About 25 percent of 1,083 adult respondents said they preferred to switch back and forth between standard and daylight saving time.

Standard time is preferred among 43 percent of those who responded, while 32 percent said they would prefer that daylight saving time be used all year.
