The Spring Forward Time Change Is Dangerous

We are all dragging today, and there is a specific reason for that.  Sure it’s a Monday, but the time change has a bigger effect on you than you may think.

Studies have shown that this may be one of the most dangerous days of the year!  So look out for the top three risks of the time change day.

1.)  More traffic accidents and workplace injuries. The Monday after “spring forward,” there’s a significant increase in accidents, both on the road and at work.  That’s a direct result of everyone trying to function on less sleep. (PubMed)

2.)  More heart attacks. There’s an increased heart attack risk today of about 10% . . . throwing off your body’s natural rhythms can be extra dangerous when you’re already at risk.  (UAB.edu)

3.)  Less productivity. A study at Penn State found that the Monday after the switch to Daylight Savings, there’s a HUGE jump in online searches for frivolous things, like celebrity gossip, because everyone’s too tired to focus.  (Cosmopolitan)

So how are you dealing with one less hour?
