Daylight saving time 2019 in South Carolina began at 2:00 AM on Sunday, March 10 and ends at 2:00 AM on Sunday,  November 3. All times are in Eastern Time.

Daylight savings time has its ups and downs. On the upside, we have more hours of daylight in the evening and thus are able to extend our schedules to do more things; and this even improves our moods.

However, on the downside, we have to set our clocks forward an hour, which makes us feel like we’ve lost an hour of sleep in the first couple days into daylight savings time. It is also darker out in the mornings, which makes it even harder for us to get up, because our bodies think its still time to sleep when we are enclosed in a dark setting.

A few good tips to help you ease into the daylight savings setting:

If you don’t already, get ready for work/school the night before so you have more time to sleep in and you will most likely will not be rushing out the door in the morning.  Go ahead and lay out your outfit and make your lunch. This lessens your morning stress and other bad factors that come along with a non-morning person.

Of course, do not skip breakfast. Make/prepare something light and easy. Skipping breakfast will come back to bite later on in the morning/before lunch. If you don’t skip meals, you will find that you have more energy throughout the day and will even be more relaxed.

Do not stay up late the night before and do not drink caffeine/stay on your phone before you go to bed, as this can cause sleeping problems and make your upcoming day miserable.
