(CBS 58) – Daylight Saving Time can impact your health and some of your daily habits, according to several studies.

On Sunday, people across the U.S. turned their clocks forward one hour.

The idea behind the clock shift is to maximize sunlight as the days get longer. However,  some studies show there can be negative impacts from the change.

According to Reuters, while we spring ahead and lose an hour of sleep, the risks of heart attacks rise. When we turn the clocks back, the risk dropped.

Another study found an increase in fatal car crashes following Daylight Saving Time and JP Morgan Chase says it saw a boost in spending when we turn the clocks forward.
