Daylight saving time in Canada will begin at 3:00 a.m. when you move your clocks forward, so we lose an hour of sleep. (1.59 a.m. leaps to 3 a.m.) Daylight saving time can change your internal circadian rhythm. This hour doesn’t seem like a lot of sleep loss but it makes a significant difference – sleep deprivation can have many effects on your body’s health:
- Coordination suffers
- Poorer concentration
- Alertness suffers
- Less productive
- REM sleep
