Various Reasons Why There Is a Need to Stop Daylight Saving time
It is known that most people are actually aware of the term “daylight saving time” and how it works. It only affects our summer time but when autumn begins, it will also end there. To make the daylight saving time take effect, you will have to do the one hour adjustment at the beginning of summer, that is one hour advance than the normal time, and once summer ends, you will have to adjust it to its original time. But what is actually the essence of doing this? For those who apply the DST or the Daylight Saving Time, their reason is that it helps in saving energy. Logically, energy is saved because people have saved energy use since there is already an hour missed in their cycle. People adopting to DST tend to sleep an hour earlier than their average sleeping time. But we cannot deny the fact that we are all confused of how DST really works for us. This is especially true to new generation of children wherein they don’t even know the essence of having a DST. That is why there are already a lot of petitions circulating in the Internet to end the DST and just have a normal time just like any time of the year. But if you are going to ask yourself, are you prepared to sign the petition or you need more information?
In reality, understanding DST is really difficult. Because of the fact that it is really confusing, it is a big factor to convince you to sign the petition. It creates confusion due to the fact that the purpose of the DST is not even linked to energy saving. In fact, as it begins during summer time, you will not understand the need for it. It can actually be the reason why you will be late during summer whether it is school or work. Your body clock changes and so thus your sleeping habit. Although your body is still active, the time will still dictate what your next activity and that is to go to sleep earlier than your usual time. It can also affect your eating routine and because of this, your health is also affected in some ways. Instead of saving energy, it is actually the cause of the increasing in energy cost. The manipulation of time actually contributes to your life’s complication during DST.
There is also limitation to DST because not all countries are making use of it. Since there are only few countries that can adopt to DST, there is no reason why you shouldn’t adopt it. If you happen to visit a country that applies DST and your country does not, you will really get confused by it. There are many online petitions for DST and it is up to you on website or forums to join.
