Extra snooze hour? Don't sleep on it, expert says

WKRN Posted: Nov 05, 2010 11:52 AM CDT NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Standard time arrives Sunday at 2 a.m. and that "extra hour" is an illusion for many of us. Dr. Beth Malow, the director of the Vanderbilt Sleep Disorders Center in Nashville, says the clocks will change, but it will take more, well, time for most people's systems to adjust. She says some may feel the benefit of sleeping in for 60 more minutes on Sunday morning but many will not. Malow says some people's internal clocks are stronger than others. In Lexington, Ky., operations minister Nate Collier of Broadway Christian Church found the congregation was 26% larger on the first November Sunday of 2009 than it was the week earlier. In 2008, there was a 16% increase in attendance. Copyright 2010 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
