The daylight-saving time is not a new concept in the world as many countries across the globe have been using it although not all. The daylight-saving time can be defined as the concept of changing the clock backward and forward. One important thing to know about the daylight saving time concept is that it was introduced during the world war one.Additionally, it is also important to note that it was presented because of the concept and some impact on the use of energy by lowering the consumption rate. How daylight savings time works are that during the start of the springtime, the clock is adjusted one hour forward and when it is the autumn season, the time is adjusted with one hour backward leading to the standardizing of the time.
Overtime, studies have been done by different scientists to prove the impact of the adjustment of the time. It has been established although the DST worked during those times, over time it has lost the meaning over time. This is because the DST is more negative impacts compared to the positive ones. There are many people in the world today who have petitioned for the stopping of the use of the DST because of the negative impacts.Discussed below are some of the reasons why there is the daylight savings petition.
Overtime people develop a sleeping pattern according to the schedule. When the countries that use the daylight saving time adjust the clock backward, it means that people are deprived of one hour sleep. The impact of the deprived sleep varies with different people as they are affected negatively. One unique character with the human body is that it notices any changes in the pattern especially in sleeping pattern and to some people, they will suffer headaches as the body tried to adjust to the short-term changes on time. The other reason why this application for the daylight-saving time is because there is increased chances of getting heart attacks.
Overtime, researchers have proven that when people are having less sleep, the result is they will be less productive during the day. That is why it has been proven that during the DST, there are many wasted working hours by the employees as they take a lot of time to entertain themselves during the work. There are more workplace injuries that are also reported during the DST as the concentration levels of the employees are low. Due to the concentration levels also, many people across the countries that use DST, end up in fatal road accidents. The petition, therefore, is to rally for the end of DST.
