What time does DayLight Saving Time Start in 2020?
Be ready to move the clocks forward. Daylight Saving Time is around the corner. Those in the ACT NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania will have to move their clock or time forward by one hour at 2 am on Sunday, October 4, 2020. Daylight saving will last until April 4, 2021, when watches will have to turn back by one hour, Western Australia, and the Northern Territory do not participate in the Daylight Saving. Most of the smartphone devices and computers adjust the time automatically, which is more comfortable, but analogue clocks need to be changed manually.
What time does DayLight Saving Time End in 2020?
Daylight savings will end at 3 am. It means at 3 am, or any time you wake up, you'll have to set your clock or watch back for about one hour. If you are a person that relies on your smartphone to tell the time, most will automatically adjust with the right time for you. For iPhone users, go to general, then tap on settings followed by date and time. If this is set to the automatic option, then your phone shall adjust the time based on whichever time zone you are.
How can dayLight savings affect my sleep pattern?
The change to daylight saving time will mostly affect how much sleep people get in the days following the initial transition, according to Dr Elise McGlashan, a research fellow from Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health, Monash University. Some people may notice that with the change, they don't sleep as long as they usually would. The clock on our phones might change it right away, but the ones in our body do not. Our core body clock, that's located in the brain, helps us to sleep and wake regularly. When we alter the clock for daylight saving, our internal clock does not want to go to sleep until our regular bedtime - according to standard time - which is now an hour later.
