Daylight saving time ends on Sunday, November 5. Don't forget to set your clocks back an hour!
Though many lawmakers around the country have tried to abolish daylight saving time, it seems that there are just too many obstacles standing in its way. The good news is, the fall
time change is the good one -- the one where changing your clocks back gives you an extra hour to sleep or binge-watch Netflix (or whatever other activity you choose!).
For those new to the concept (transplants from Arizona, we're looking at you!), simply change your clock back one hour before you go to bed on Saturday night, November 4. The official time change occurs at 2 a.m. on Sunday morning. So, if it's 11 p.m. when you head to bed, you'll change your clocks to 10 p.m. Most smartphones and digital car clocks will take care of the change automatically these days.

Really, despite your personal preference on daylight distribution, the fall time change is just a sign that the holidays are right around the corner! And that's always good news. So enjoy your extra hour and do what you've got to do to get your routine back on schedule. Your body will adjust soon enough!
