Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday and if Florida lawmakers had their way it would never end. You'll set it back one hour at 2 a.m. on November 4.

The Florida State Senate voted 33-2 and the House 103-11 in a rare show of bipartisanship on a bill declaring that the state should go to daylight savings time and never go back, the Miami Herald reported.

That means you'll lose one full hour of time and spend that first week perhaps groggy, disoriented and maybe even in a bad mood. Researchers say most people need three to five days to adjust to the time change.

Why was Daylight Saving Time Created?

It is time to spring forward, so don't forget to reset those clocks.

If you're dreading the start of Daylight Saving Time this weekend, here are a few tips from experts on how to ease into your new schedule without wanting to break your alarm clock.

The twice-a-year tradition of changing time - springing forward and falling backward - is back again, despite some Texas lawmakers' efforts to end it. Britain's foe in World War I, Germany, was the first to start using Daylight Saving on April 30, 1916, in order to conserve the amount of electricity consumed.

If approved, Florida would be making the opposite move those states and territories that have opted to stay on Standard Time made. While it was a federal act, states were granted the power to decide if they wanted to remain on standard time year-round. Instead, it is up to each state whether they choose to participate or not.

Daylight saving time begins March 11, 2018 at 2:00 A.M. Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands all decline for the same reason as Hawaii: The closer you are to the equator, the less seasons impact the length of your day.
