Daylight saving time has come in New Zealand. Clocks are set to forward at 2 a.m. on Sunday to mark the beginning of daylight saving time. According to Guy Warman, an expert at the University of Auckland’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, adjusting to the new time can take a few days. He recommends getting as much sunlight as possible in the morning during the first couple of days to facilitate a quicker adjustment to daylight saving time. The September transition is generally considered more challenging than the autumn change when clocks are set back.
Daylight saving time (DST) is when we change our clocks to have more daylight in the evening during the warm months. Here’s why we do it:
- Save Energy: DST helps us use less electricity because we use natural sunlight in the evening.
- Enjoy Longer Days: It gives us more time for fun outdoor activities and helps businesses.
- Stay Healthy: DST encourages outdoor time and exercise, which is good for our health.
- Safer Roads: It may reduce accidents because there’s more daylight when people are driving home.
- Boost the Economy: Businesses like restaurants benefit when people shop and dine out in the evening.
- History and Culture: DST has been around a long time and is part of our traditions.
It’s important to note that not all regions or countries observe daylight saving time, and its effectiveness and necessity can vary depending on geographical location and local climate patterns.
