To help adjust to the loss of sleep, sleep experts suggest going to bed an hour earlier, and to avoid heavy foods Saturday night.

Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 6.

A poll conducted last October shows that most Americans want to avoid switching between daylight saving and standard time, though there is no consensus behind which should be used all year.

The poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found only 25% of Americans said they preferred to switch back and forth between standard and daylight saving time.

Forty-three percent of Americans said they would like to see standard time used during the entire year. Thirty-two percent say they would prefer that daylight saving time be used all year.
