Time is important in our lives, this is why we make sure we have clocks and wrist watches, and we make sure to have them handy just so we can try and fit all our daily priorities in to one day.
Clocks forward has been one of our individual moves in trying to change time so we can fit more and more leisure time we get to make the work done and the social responsibilities done on time. But clocks forward has a different meaning in the context of time zones and time and daylight saving devices. As defined by the act of some UK countries in creating clocks forward there are certain time changes in the entire UK region such as one that is enumerated here;
https://www.timeanddate.com/time/change/uk/london it states that from October a clock will turn backward 1 hour and for this year march the clock will turn forward by 1 hour.
In spring for example, you have to start moving and changing your clock 1 hour more at the start of the DST and then change it backward 1 hour when fall starts.
Historical records suggests that “spring forward, fall back” has been in use in the early 20th century.
According to this article http://www.mirror.co.uk/tech/when-do-clocks-change-2017-10084527
This strategy was first introduced in World War 1 by Germany and Austria and it was invented to do have some additional work hours by getting up early in the morning thus creating more increased productivity.
So how do you deal with time changes? Get enough sleep the night before in order not to feel fuzzy or sleep-deprived.
Some experts suggest that this method actually helps in reducing traffic and solving crime rates thus creating decrease in crime incidents and also is energy saving, but these things are yet to be debated over.
The thing is, to do clocks forward means that one must adjust his or her mindset to cope up with the type of spring forward and fall back phrase.
This method is actually employed for example, in the United States and in the United Kingdom. Although the United Kingdom has always been using daylight saving which means that the clocks are settled forward 1 hour from standard time during the summer months, and back again in the fall, in order to make better use of natural daylight.
More so, there are pros and cons of daylight savings such long evenings compared to short ones, where one can enjoy more time in their leisure and rest times thus allowing more time for sleep, this can only be effectively use of if one sleeps early.
Also, you don’t use more energy due to less artificial light is use when you do clocks forward, also that it can give more time to enjoy your time at the evening.
Daylight savings time also has some cons, and these are all related to sleep deprived conditions due to the fact that even if evenings are created longer, more and more people still feel tired the next day as they still do not sleep early, thus making them sick and less productive when they spend more time in evening hang outs than get sleep as they have to wake up an hour earlier due to the clocks forward conditions.
So this clocks forward can pose both good and bad, but it depend on the individual on how he/she will adapt to the changes before spring comes.
Clocks forward your life in spring and fall back to the usual time. Clocks forward is a way of adjusting your cognitions by making a time mindset that will increase your productivity if you know how to adapt and maneuver the changes in clocks forward.
