On the counterpart, this change will set New Mexico's clocks two hours different from Texas.

Other states like New Mexico, Maine, Massachusetts and Florida, are considering proposals to stay on daylight saving time permanently.

"I sure as heck hope next week because what happens is with majority changing their clocks and losing one hour of sleep, I hope they're cranky enough to get it done", he said.

States and territories are allowed to individually opt out of observing Daylight Saving Time. And that diminished ability to function can have some serious consequences.

On Saturday, House lawmakers in the Washington legislature passed a measure to keep Daylight Savings Time year-round. But back in 1916, Germany first implemented Daylight Saving Time during World War I when coal was in short supply. They find that while DST reduce energy demand in the evening, it increases demand in the morning with no significant net effect. But railroad companies, afraid confusion around the time change could cause a deadly crash, were adamantly against it. The clocks officially change at 2 a.m. local time wherever a person is in the country.

Due to the inconveniences surrounding Daylight Saving Time, some states simply don't follow it anymore, and an increasing number of places are joining them.

If the prospect of losing that sleep already seems exhausting, experts have a tip on how to adjust: soak up all that extra sunlight as soon as you can. "In the week leading up to the time change, pay special attention to clocking the right amount of shut eye", Sleep.org says. "It's been dark for most of the winter, then it starts getting lighter, then all of a sudden they're driving in the dark in the morning - plus the loss of sleep". Dim bedroom lights, turn off the TV and put electronic devices away about an hour before you plan to go to bed. But remember, most smartphones will automatically update themselves when Daylight Saving Time begins.
