(Oct. 29, 2009)--When you go to bed Saturday night, remember to set back your clocks one hour. At 2 a.m., Sunday, Nov. 1, daylight saving time (DST) ends for the year.
>> Employees working during the change to standard time will receive credit for nine hours worked for that completed shift and should be reflected on the employee time record. Work schedule adjustments within the seven-day workweek may be made by departmental supervisors to prevent the accrual of overtime or state compensatory time hours. For more information, contact UTSA Human Resources at (210) 458-7891.
Since it will feel like we are losing an hour, there are some "inconveniences," according to Helium.com. For some, the shift of one hour of daylight from the evening to the morning requires only minor adjustment, but for others the adjustment period can take weeks.
Because the body's inner clock (circadian rhythms) is abruptly unable to sync up with its external environment, it can result in fatigue, sleeplessness, irritability and other discomforts. On the flip side, some experts believe that DST can actually help alleviate depression, as people must get up earlier once the time changes.
