Saturday night, it's time to spring forward and set your clocks ahead one hour.

The idea of losing an hour of sleep may sound awful but the change could do you some good. Experts say the time change will give us an extra hour of sunlight. This could make you feel a little happier, and renew connections with the outside world.

"I think we're going to ultimately have more energy," said Dr. Scott Bea with the Cleveland Clinic. "We can resume the things we like to do, we can get out and walk and run and visit our neighbors and have a backyard BBQ."

You can help your body adjust to losing an hour of sleep. Just go to bed a little earlier Friday and Saturday nights.
