PODCAST BROADCAST: PLEASE STOP IT & DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME (3-12-12)

PLEASE STOP THIS….We changed the clocks this weekend, so . . . TODAY IS AWFUL (Insert Sarcasm Here).  Here are three reasons why this time change is the WORST, and it’s all because of sleep deprivation:  It leads to more accidents in traffic and at the workplace . . . it leads to more heart attacks . . . and it leads to today being an extremely unproductive day at work.

Here are three reasons why this time change is the WORST (HA!) . . . and they’re all connected to the side effects of being EXHAUSTED. WHAT A JOKE!

#1.)  More traffic accidents and workplace injuries.  The Monday after “spring forward,” there’s a significant increase in accidents, both on the road and at work.  That’s a direct result of everyone trying to function on less sleep.  

#2.)  More heart attacks.  There’s an increased heart attack risk today of about 10% . . . throwing off your body’s natural rhythms can be extra dangerous when you’re already at risk.  

#3.)  Less productivity.  A study at Penn State found that the Monday after the switch to Daylight Savings, there’s a HUGE jump in online searches for frivolous things, like celebrity gossip, because everyone’s too tired to focus.

THIS DESERVES A BIG HUGE PLEASE STOP IT!
