NBC NEWS -- Something will happen in the early morning hours of this coming Sunday morning that will transform a lot of us into tired, moody commuters Monday morning: daylight saving time begins.
When we lose that precious hour overnight, we get less sleep. But even though you might wake up before the sun rises, there is a bright side to daylight saving time: the days will lengthen, and we'll get a giant dose of mood-boosting sunlight. Bouts of the wintry depression "seasonal affective disorder" fade this time of year.
Experts say to take advantage of the longer days. Take that long evening stroll, dig up your spring garden, or shoot some hoops with your kids. The time to fall back on your old ways will come soon enough.
