Whether you call it Daylight Savings or Daylight Saving - it's happening this weekend! Yes, it's officially the end of summer.
The good news is, we're regaining an hour, so that means more sleep!
New Zealand DST (Daylight Savings Time) officially ends at 2am on Sunday, April 1. It began last year at 2am on the 24th of September.
The best way to remember how Daylight Savings works, is: Spring forward, Fall back.
Daylight Saving was first conceived by Benjamin Franklin in 1784 and it's been practiced in New Zealand since 1927.
When Daylight Saving was introduced, it was for economic reasons - saving power by not having to light homes - but these days it's more to do with our R&R time.
The end of Daylight Savings can affect your health.
It's common for men to have cluster headaches due to the change of time, usually a couple of days before winding back your clocks.
It is also a common occurrence for depression to be triggered from losing that hour of sunshine. According to an experimental study in Denmark, the rate of depression diagnoses were higher than expected in the month after Fall Back.
If we can offer any advice, wake earlier! Get your circadian rhythm on track by using the right combination of light and darkness. Open those curtains early in the morning to make the most of the extra sunlight, and avoid screens before bed so your body knows it's time to wind down.
