I love daylight savings time! My favorite.

I love having the extra sunshine, but with 2 small kids it always messes up bedtime!

I love having more sunlight at the end of the day! It definitely makes me feel better. I wish it just stayed like that all year long instead of changing the time.

I wish it would change this weekend, and never go back.

Why don't they just leave time alone!

Why bother? We just have to readjust our lives twice a year.

My cats will be so happy. I feed them when I get up in the morning and they don't like or understand when one day in fall I start feeding them an hour later than I did all summer. They spend all winter trying to get me to switch back...

I LOVE this time change!! I'm up, but not outside in the early morning, so darker mornings don't bother me, and I love, love, love more daylight at the end of the day!! Helps my spirits immensely!! Easier for me to stay active, which makes me sleep better, which makes me more energetic, a nice snowball effect!! Plus temperatures will soon be turner warmer!!!

it always upsets my body rhythms - both forward and backward time-setting exercises.
I almost wish I lived somewhere that didn't do it.

Not only that, my dog walking will be in the dark again for a while, until the sunrise catches up with the change

I would really prefer to stay on the same time all year. That makes a lot more sense to me, as it seems more economical. What about people who have medical conditions that require them to follow a schedule? This 2/3 split seems impractical. 12 months of continuity I say.

Does that mean I lose an hour of not sleeping or an hour of being awake??

Like Firecom I live in Arizona where we don't do daylight savings... my selfish response is that I frequently forget the time difference between us and the coasts....

I'm with Norwoodgirl. It screws-up my psychological bedtime. I think it's late and it's early. Takes a while for my body to adjust. Just leave it alone. I want to sleep when it's dark and be awake when it light!

I don't care whether we stay on DST or not - but quit changing the times twice a year. Studies have already proven it does not save on electricity or any other reason for making the change.

WHY do we ever change the clocks. Pick a time, stick with it. We have electricity now, we don't need to change the clocks. We will turn on a light and keep working. NO MORE CLOCK CHANGES. It is SO silly.

Absolutely cannot wait! I have much more energy in the evening when it is light out and am looking forward to evening walks! Plus I don't like driving anywhere in the dark so I always put off evening errands until the last minute - will be much easier with the sun staying up later!

Not observed here in AZ. I do think the idea is OK so I wonder why it is not observed year around.

I love it as my husband will go to 4 ten hour days verses 5 eight hour days, but it will take me time to adjust so I will be drowsy in the mornings and tired by the afternoon for a while. Three day weekends start in April and last for 6 mos. :)

I am looking forward to the time change. It helps to make the day longer. We need the added sunshine on the sunny days. I feel like Spring and Summer is just around the corner, soon after the time change. Paint me sunny and happy!!!

I have to wait until 29th March and I am looking forward to it.
Getting up in the daylight and going for a walk before breakfast. Going out after dinner! I really can't wait.

It will make a huge difference in this part of the world. At the moment when I wake up at 6am its dark, it gets dark by 6pm. It makes it hard to be motivated to go outside so having longer days will make a huge difference to me.

Day Light Saving Time is Sunday March 10. Setting the clock ahead will not make much of a difference to me
