For those who have to work or get up at a decent hour this change could be a bummer for you. Happened to read an article about how to adjust and it is rather obvious. Don't jump into it tired and sleep deprived. It says that there are a larger number of injuries and accidents on the Monday after the time change. An hour of lost sleep can bring on headaches and other health issues. Melatonin can help regulate the sleep cycle during this time. The smart thing to do is to plan ahead. Move up your wake-up time by 15-20 minutes a few days before the time change. Make it early to bed on the Saturday before the change. Get up when the alarm goes off and don't use the snooze. Also, limit naps and caffeine during this time. Adhering to the new schedule will make it much easier in the long run.

Since I don't have to get up and go to work, this won't affect me much. Even when I did get up early for work, it never bothered me much, there is a short period of adjustment, but the days are long enough that it was light when I got up, and I enjoyed the extra light in the evening. Also, by the time the clock went back to standard time, I was glad to have the extra light in the morning. I hate getting up in the dark. So, I guess I am pro Daylight Savings Time.
