As Breus told mbg, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) has long suggested that we Adopt standard timeAnd the Not the summer timing.
According to Breus and the AASM, permanent daylight saving time can lead to lasting negative health effects. Since our bodies naturally align with standard time, perpetual daylight saving time can disrupt our internal clocks, resulting in permanent delays in the sleep phase and thus chronic sleep loss. Read: Just because it’s lighter at night and darker in the morning doesn’t mean we won’t have to get up early for our jobs, school, etc. — but that we might feel inclined to stay up later anyway.
“Daylight saving time does not correspond to our internal biological clocks, which are called your circadian rhythm,” Breus says.
There is other evidence to suggest that permanent daylight saving time can lead to perpetuity social time differenceWhile standard timing is usually associated with better physical and mental health outcomes, Breus adds.
According to Shelby Harris, Ph.D.director of sleep health at Sleepopolis and author of A Woman’s Guide to Overcoming Insomnia“If sun protection becomes law, people may have a harder time getting up in the morning and going to sleep at night—especially getting up in the morning in the fall and winter.”
With permanent daylight saving time in place, she explains, “we’ll have less light in the morning to help wake us up and more light in the evening which makes it more difficult to sleep,” adding that there’s no doubt we should stop back and forth, Breus echoes The AASM states that our bodies are more in tune with standard timing.
