At 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 9, 2014, our clocks will move an hour ahead (or spring forward) to begin daylight savings time. And yes, technically called daylight saving time, this means we'll start noticing more daylight as we leave the office.
This time change, which happens twice a year, once in November and once in March, helps people across the country adapt to seasonal changes (and feel a little better about saying goodbye to winter). In Canada, not all provinces have to change their clocks. The province of Saskatchewan (except for the town of Lloydminster and surrounding areas) and Dawson Creek in British Columbia keep things the same all year round.
And as the weather starts to get significantly warmer (or so we're hoping!), you may also start to notice a change in your mood — besides the initial frustration of giving up that extra hour of sleep. Depending on your stress levels, a time change can also alter how you sleep and your energy levels, according to naturopathic doctor Chamandeep Bali of Toronto.
Although experts say most people won't feel anything at all, if you find yourself experiencing spring time fatigue, try yoga, getting more zinc and finding time to work out outdoors.
