How you doin’ on this Daylight Savings Monday?  Grumpy? Disoriented? Fatigued?  I have to say it all seems waaaay overblown to me.  However there are a lot of myths and misinformation out there.
CNN news reports one of the major arguments for the annual changeover is to save on energy but a 2008 U.S. Department of Energy study found daylight saving time only reduced annual energy use by 0.03 percent.

Another claim is that farmers love it but history debunks that. Research shows the ag lobby argued the time change would cut productivity by as much as 25 percent.

Finally, the change exposes us to more sunlight which is supposed to be healthy. But CNN found most people feel out of sorts for several days after daylight saving time kicks the body’s internal clock. In addition to throwing off your sleep patterns, you're at a  higher risk for accidents in the days after daylight saving. Your health is also at risk for depression, heart attack and stroke.
