Daylight Savings – Do We Gain or Lose an Hour of Sleep?

The first Sunday in November is when Daylight Savings time ends and you may be wondering whether you lose or gain an hour a sleep. Despite the time change every year, we still find ourselves asking whether we lose or gain sleep. In the fall, the time is “falling back” so, we gain an hour of sleep

Now, in March, it’s another story and we’ll be “springing forward,” which means we lose an hour of sleep.  

For reference, here are the upcoming Daylight Savings dates:


Begins Sunday, March 8 (lose sleep) and ends on Sunday, November 1 (gain an hour of sleep)


Begins Sunday, March 14, 2021 (lose sleep) and ends Sunday, November 7, 2021 (gain an hour of sleep)

Hope we answered your question. Good luck adjusting to Daylight Savings!
