  • Dan La Moore wipes down a Shinola clock at Electric Time Co. in Medfield Mass. Daylight Saving Time officially ends Sunday Nov. 5

Everyone is about to get one more hour of sleep this weekend. After that, days will get slightly longer - about two more minutes of daylight each day.

However, the extra sleep time may not be beneficial for your body.

The time change also can bring some less expected problems.

The main goal, according to proponents, would be to add an extra hour of afternoon daylight in the winter. Turn your clocks back one hour before heading to bed Saturday night, but remember that most smart phones will do this automatically nowadays.

Some 70 countries around the world use daylight saving time.

Of course, nature doesn't change for Daylight Saving Time.

How can the transition be eased for minimal effect?

The other surprising part to this research is when we lose an hour in the spring, crime actually went down in the study.

A 2013 study in the journal Sleep Medicine Reviews found that the hour gained in autumn can lead to sleep deprivation for the rest of the week.

In 2012, a University of Alabama researcher suggested "springing forward" could present health challenges, including an increase in the potential for heart attacks.

We don't go back to daylight saving until Sunday, March 11, 2018, about a week before spring begins.

"Indirect evidence of an increase in traffic accident rates, and change in health and regulatory behaviors which may be related to sleep disruption suggest that adjustment to daylight saving time is neither immediate nor without outcome".
