This Sunday at 2:00 a.m. is the official start of Daylight Saving Time. So, remeber to turn your clocks ahead one hour.
It's also a good reminder to check your smoke alarms. A properly installed and maintained smoke alarm is the only thing in your home that can alert you and your family to a fire 24/7.
We know not getting enough sleep can make us groggy or grumpy, but it can also affect our waistline. So, you really better go to bed to make up for the hour you'll lose Sunday morning. Doctors at UC Berkeley say a sleepless night makes us more likely to reach for doughnuts or pizza than leafy green veggies. The brain's region that controls food choices seems to be impaired when it's tired, causing unhealthy snacking, cravings for high calorie foods and overeating.
