It's time to set your clock back an hour!

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT/CNN) – It's time to set those clocks back an hour. Daylight Saving Time will come to an end this weekend, which means you'll get an extra hour of sleep!

While getting an extra hour of sleep may seem like a good way to get more rest, it can impact your internal clock and sleep patterns.

Experts suggest staying hydrated to help your body adjust. They also say staying active during the day and doing something relaxing a few hours before what would normally be your bedtime could help too.

The end of Daylight Saving Time is also a good reminder to check your smoke detectors.

According to authorities, most home fires happen between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., usually while you and your family are sleeping.

Fire officials say having working detectors can help save your life.

Don't forget to move your clocks back one hour before you go to bed Saturday night. The official switch happens at 2:00 a.m. Sunday.
