The daylight-saving time is not a new concept in the world as many countries across the globe have been using it although not all. The daylight-saving time can be defined as the concept of changing the clock backward and forward. The the concept of the daylight saving time also known as DST was introduced during the World War I. The primary reason why they daylight saving time concept was introduced is because of the impact on the use of power because it was believed it a lot of the consumption rate. For the countries that are the daylight saving time or the DST adjust their clocks one hour forward when it is the start of the springtime and adjust it backward with one hour it is the autumn season which means that the time is standardized.
Overtime, studies have been done by different scientists to prove the impact of the adjustment of the time. It has been established although the DST worked during those times, over time it has lost the meaning over time. This is because the DST is more negative impacts compared to the positive ones. Due to this, there are many people that have petitioned for the stop of the daylight saving time. The daylight savings petition is because of the following reasons.
Overtime people develop a sleeping pattern according to the schedule. One of the negative effects on the people who live in the DST zones is that they are deprived of sleep when the time is adjusted one hour backward. When people have not enough sleep, there are different impacts which vary with different people. One unique character with the human body is that it notices any changes in the pattern especially in sleeping pattern and to some people, they will suffer headaches as the body tried to adjust to the short-term changes on time. The other reason why this application for the daylight-saving time is because there is increased chances of getting heart attacks.
Overtime, researchers have proven that when people are having less sleep, the result is they will be less productive during the day. Many businesses have reported that during the DST, their businesses experience a lot of wasted hours as the employees are not active ending up in entertaining themselves during the work time. The concentration levels of the employees are lowering it is the DST season resulting in many workplace injuries. The other negative impact of the DST, especially in countries that use it is that there many reports on road accidents. Therefore the so many negative impacts on the health and economy of many countries, the daylight saving time should be added.
