When is spring forward time change or at what time do I need to move the clock forward. If you are asking this question, it means you haven’t set your clock forward till now.

Earlier today, Monday, at sharp 2 a.m., clocks across the US and Canada were moved forward by one hour. There is no fixed date for the beginning of the spring forward. On the contrary, this spring forward always begins on the second Sunday in March.

The most important thing that you should keep in mind is the that you need to move the clock forward to 3 a.m. once the clock strikes 2 a.m.

While the good thing about the tech revolution is the fact that your expensive gadgets will update the time and date according to official version, you need to change the wall clocks and manual watches yourself. With the clocks being moved forward, you are going to lose an hour of sleep.

A report suggests that there is a five percent surge in the heart attack cases immediately after the spring forward. Reports suggest that people tend to have more heart attacks on the Monday following the “spring forward” switch to daylight saving time. Researchers reporting in 2014 in the journal Open Heart, found that heart attacks increased 24 percent on that Monday, compared with the daily average number for the weeks surrounding the start of DST.

A CNN report while talking about the beginning of the troublesome daylight savings time says that the government started using “Daylight Saving Time” during World War I to copy the Germans, who were apparently doing it to save on fuel. The notion was pulled and then brought back again with the idea that it would somehow conserve resources. Daylight Saving Time just ended up sticking around after. Electricity at that time was scarce and so it was used to save energy. But today when there is no scarcity of power in the US and other developed nations, it is nothing more than a nuisance.
