Keeping true to the mantra of “spring ahead, fall behind” move your clock ahead 1 hour, which means you will lose 1 hour of sleep. Even those who have computers and mobile devices that should move ahead automatically, double-check them before you head out, or set an alarm on Sunday morning an hour earlier just in case. I will be changing the pictured clocks in the Dunkirk Systems, LLC office, as well as those throughout my home.

The change in clocks is also a recommended time to check and change the batteries in the smoke detectors in your home. Even if your smoke detectors are powered by electricity, they may have a battery backup.

Here’s another suggestion – change your passwords. As it is always advised to change your passwords on a regular basis to keep them secure, why not do it at least twice a year?

Here’s to a safe and accurate good night’s sleep tonight!
