    When I was a kid daylight savings wasn’t implemented until the end of April when it was getting light out in the morning very early and we reverted back to standard time at the beginning of September when the mornings started to darken; hence daylight savings. I am heart broken that the powers that be want to plunge us all in to permanent morning darkness. This is going to have a huge impact on my already shaken mental health.

    I wish they would just pick one and leave it. It doesn’t matter what they pick. Give 5 hours permentantly. I don’t care. The inconsistency of changing the clocks twice a year is stupid. No celestial event occurs to create more daylight. It is just forcing people to adjust their sleep schedule enmass. I hope it stops someday.

      Yes, I too wish they picked one and stopped DAT!
      It disturbs sleep leading to insomnia!
      Perhaps it was created to help farmers. Farmers have never benefited and the rest of us suffer!
      STOP DST!

    It is called Standard Time for a reason. It should be the standard. Dark mornings brought about by DST are a scourge and detrimental to mental health as shown by many psychological studies.

    I would prefer year round Standard Time but am willing to compromise with six months of each — 50/59. The current system 8 months of DST and 4 of ST is far to much out of balance.

    I hate day light saving time especially it been extended from April to March. I live in the north, it is getting brighter in the morning from Jan to March, but all the sudden it falls back to dark after this damned DST. Should we observe the standard time that is designed to observe the daylight rather than this damned DLS instead? If anyone want more sunlight, he should adopt his own schedule rather than forcing everyone to do the same.

    absolutely HATE daylight savings, most people who work, by the time they get home and finish their chores with the kids, homework, cooking, husband and all of everyday life responsibilities do not have the time to “enjoy the daylight” so why is that so important to them? I don’t understand it, are they afraid of the dark? does the dark cause depression in these people? seems to me if you are a happy person you are happy all the time and light should not be a factor of influence in your mood, for myself, I love the night and wish they would the normal time be. Here in Miami the sun is out by 7:00 am and stays out until pass 8:00 pm, is just too much! remember the song by the police, Bring on the night, I couldn’t take another hour of daylight, that just expresses the way I feel.

    I hate when it’s not DST, those four gruesome months bring my mood down because of the darkness that consumes my happiness that comes much earlier than warranted. I want to see sunshine for an extra hour 🙁

      You don’t see sunshine for an extra hour. The sun comes up and goes down exactly when it does, whether or not we manipulate our clocks and minds and biorhythms. Nothing we do can change the fact that there are fewer hours of daylight in the winter. I think what bothers people is the abrupt change, instead of adjusting gradually to the seasonal progression of days getting longer and shorter. To me, noon should be at high noon!

      I agree 100%! The darkness sucks! I love it when it gets dark at 8pm. People are out doing things. When its at 5pm no one goes out!
