Daylight Saving Time begins this Sunday, March 11, 2012 at 12:01 am.
Remember to adjust your clocks one hour ahead.
This will also be a good time to replace the batteries of your smoke detectors at home.
Thưa Đại chúng,
Quý vị nhớ chỉnh đồng lên thêm một giờ trước khi ngủ thức dậy sáng Phật Nhật Sunday March 11, 2012 hôm nay khẻo đi đến Đạo Tràng Tu Viện Hộ Phap thời khoá tu sáng sớm 6:30 sáng nay sẽ bị trễ một giờ vì đã đổi giờ.
Đồng thời, đây là thời gian tốt bạn hãy nhớ thay các cục pin trong máy báo động nhà cháy để máy còn hoạt động hữu hiệu phòng khi hỏa hoạn bạn cùng gia đình cùng nghe tiếng báo động để cùng nhau phi thân nhanh chóng thoát cơn nguy hiểm.

Daylight Saving Time Health Risks
Let's all join in a collective yawn. Daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 11. Get ready to spring, or stumble, ahead.
Yahoo! Health: Timeline for Better Sleep
Monday morning risks can be more serious than needing to nap at your desk: researchers at Loyola University School of Medicine report that there are more workplace injuries and traffic accidents the day after we turn our clocks ahead. Heart attack rates increase by as much as 10%. The time change is hardest on those who are chronically sleep deprived: the National Sleep Foundation estimates that more than one-third of Americans are dangerously sleepy.
While most people will adjust to the time change in a couple of days, night owls and those who habitually grab fewer than seven hours of sleep a night can take a full week to catch up.
Here are some tips to help reset your internal clock and survive your first couple of days back at work or school:
Start going to bed 15 minutes earlier a couple of nights before the time change.
Set your alarm 30 minutes earlier on Saturday and Sunday morning you are used to getting up earlier on Monday.
Go outside early Saturday and Sunday morning.
If you don't have a pre-existing health condition, exercise outdoors, but not after 4 p.m. which can disrupt sleep later.
Refrain from napping over the weekend.
Avoid alcohol on Sunday night. While it might knock you out, alcohol disrupts sleep patterns.
Eat a healthy, substantial breakfast Monday morning to provide you with energy to get through the day.
Children need help adjusting to the time change as well. Jennifer Chambers, MD, of the University of Alabama suggests serving dinner 30 minutes earlier to help reset their schedule. She also recommends against letting kids sleep late Sunday morning, the first day of the time change. More of her tips for children can be found here.
