Remember to set your clocks ahead one hour Saturday night before going to bed.

Here are some useful tips to stay on top of the time change:

  • Although many widely used electronic devices such as cell phones are updated automatically, continue to double-check.
  • Children may have difficulty during bedtime and wake-up time. Try to keep routines the same (even if that means having dinner earlier for a few days).
  • Take advantage of the longer daylight hours by engaging in an outdoor activity.
  • As a convenient reminder, many fire departments encourage people to change the battery in their smoke/carbon monoxide detector when changing their clocks.
  • The U.S. Naval Observatory’s website gives the current time for all time zones, and it’s free: https://tycho.usno.navy.mil/timer.html
