Anna MacKinnon, argued the health benefits of ceasing the clock change.

Kevin Phillips from the Alaska Sleep Clinic… Phillips: “It takes about a day or two for each hour you lose to get your body back in sync with what you’re doing. So it’s not too big of a change, having an hour, but with a lot of people already not having enough sleep in their life, an hour can be s bigger impact.”last_img read more
