Change of time in spring: summer time

With the beginning of spring 2013 It is also usual that, just a few days after the official arrival of this beautiful season of the year, the summer schedule, a Time change that, at least in the European Union, was regulated in 1981 until finally approving Directive 2000/84 / CE of January 19, 2001, which in turn was incorporated into Spanish law through Royal Decree 236/2002 of March 1st.

This regulation establishes that each year two time changes will be made, so that, after the arrival of spring, the last Sunday of March of each year, at 2 o'clock in the morning (peninsular time), the clocks must advance one hour, which assumes that when they are both originally will be three. While the next change occurs the last Sunday of October, at which time the time is late.

However, as with the arrival of a new station, the Time change can have negative effects for health, as it has been warning for years from the medical community.

When is the change of time in spring 2013 to start with daylight saving time?

The change of spring time always occurs on the last Sunday of March (March 31, 2013), consisting of advance the clock one hour, always at 2 o'clock in the morning.

This means that, originally, when it is 2, it will really be 3.

Due to this official advance, the time is advanced sixty minutes, so it will get dark later (when it is 7:00 pm it will be really 8:00 pm) and it will rise earlier (when 7:00 am it will be 8:00 am).

This means that we will enjoy more sunlight, which translates into benefits for our body, which generally goes through the improvement in the mood of the person and a greater sense of well-being. But this happens only after the first week after the time change, since it is known that the change of time affects our health.
