Most of us are going to lose an hour of sleep this weekend. Daylight Saving Time starts at 2 a.m. Sunday, but research shows some people lose more than just that rest. Experts say the loss of sleep affects people’s reflexes, and car accidents are more common the first few days after the time change. Heart attacks also go up by ten percent. So what can be done to minimize the harm?

Try going to bed a little early Friday night and getting up early Saturday to help with the transition.
