Daylight Saving Time (DST) is the practice of advancing our clocks one hour in order to extend natural daylight in the evening. It may not affect all of us, but for some it seriously throws off our schedules. As an IT pro, you can benefit from this extra hour of daylight to gain more visibility and better maintain your IT infrastructure. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
One Hour Ahead, But Not Lost
Every second Sunday of March, we advance our clocks at 2:00 a.m. Even though it may affect our daily routine for a couple of days, we benefit from this change for an entire eight months. Once the first Sunday of November hits, we get that one hour of precious sleep back.
Mornings are Darker, Evenings are Brighter
You probably noticed that it was significantly darker this morning. With yesterday’s time change, the sun will rise a littler later, but fortunately we get that extra hour of daylight in the evening. With more light in the day, you can be much more productive at work, better track what’s going on in your IT environment, and still have time to do what you want to do at the end of your day.
Adjusting is Easy
