In the article, ¨Should We Stop Changing the Clocks?” on Upfront (login required), we get two perspectives regarding daylight saving time (DST). Those who believe we should stop changing the clocks have high concerns about the negative effects that come after changing the clocks, even if it’s just two times a year. However, those who believe we should not stop changing the clocks state that there are many advantages in the current time system, such as making full use of daylight all year round.

Do you think we should stop changing the clocks?

Based on the knowledge I´ve acquired through this article, I believe that we should stop changing the clocks. Scientific research shows that there are multiple bad health consequences that last from days to weeks. Upon that, it interferes with people’s routines, if you barely have the energy to stay awake then there is even less of a chance you´ll keep your daily routine. I am open-minded to both sides, I do think that it is a shame that without DST we would waste such great daylight as we sleep. However, I am not very educated on this matter so I am open to criticism as well.

Dear Ashley, I am intrigued by your post “Should We Stop Changing the Clocks” because you talk about the negative effects that changing the clocks can have on people. You also say that even though the clock is changed every 2 years it can still affect people. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, “Scientific research shows that there are multiple bad health consequences that last from days to weeks.” I think this is interesting because it talks about the negative effects changing the clock can have. Thanks for your writing I look forward to seeing what you write next because you write about interesting issues. And I like how you word your opinion and how you word your information overall.

Dear Ashley,

I am very interested in your post, “Should We Stop Changing The Clocks?” because it is actually very fascinating how this idea has become normal to us. Our time is literally being changed which is an interesting concept.

One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is: “Scientific research shows that there are multiple bad health consequences that last from days to weeks.” I did not know there were bad consequences because of this but I am not surprised that there are either. I am very interested in seeing if the changing of our time will stop.

Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like the topic you chose to research and write about.

Dear Ashley :

I am intrigued by your post “Should We Stop Changing the Clocks?” because daylight saving time is something that occurs in our lives. I never thought much of its effects on people because personally, I have not felt any. If we want to make the most out of our days a sacrifice must be made, which in this case it is losing an hour of sleep; may throw off our daily routine, but will not be a big deal. 

One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I am not very educated on this matter so I am open to criticism as well.” I think this is awesome because you are being honest. Many people would have made up stuff, but not you because you are honest. 

Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you choose interesting topics. This topic was interesting because sleep is a huge part of my life; I like to sleep.
