    I'm assuming that daylight savings time can throw the circadian rhythms out of sync. Does anyone have thoughts on how to compensate? I'm wondering if using melatonin for a couple of days will help, similar to a jet lag situation. I know I always feel like crap for a few days after.

    Not sure that it would throw the rhythms out of whack.. It's really us adjusting to the fact that we had imposed time on out lifestyle.. Really, if there were no clocks and starting times, we'd adjust our sleep wake cycles to the light anyway..

    Daylight savings time CREATES a circadian mismatch you need to hack. I do it every year. DST give us a 17% rise in fatal traffic accidents
    Between 1986 and 1995, fatal traffic accidents rose 17% the Monday following the switch to Daylight Saving Time.

    Source: University of Colorado. Want some more? Over $9,000,000 in electricity cost due to DST and this tells you why the government allows DST to persist. It is about money. And that electric power grid causes circadian disruption because of its artificial light and the electric power grids electric and magnetic fields.

    A 2006 report found DST led to a 1 percent overall rise in residential electricity use in Indiana, costing the the state an extra $9 million. Researchers said that cost could be even higher in other regions of the U.S.

    From 1983 to 2006, there was a 68% increase in lost working days due to workplace injury on the Monday following the switch to DST.

    A 2014 study showed that the hour of sleep lost when switching to DST can increase your risk of a heart attack by 25%.


    Daylight "Saving" is morning robbery—bad for sleep and health.
