TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - This weekend daylight saving time will end.
This means the Wabash Valley will turn their clocks back one hour. Some residents say the change is inconvenient and some say Daylight Saving Time shouldn't be observed at all.
The Wabash Valley is divided into two time zones. Illinois observes Central Time and most of Indiana observes Eastern Time.
Terre Haute resident Alex Heller says this is just the way things are.
"All of my life it has been standard time for us. So daylight saving time kicking in later on as an adult id definitely a change" he says.
Heller has a family and says younger people sometime have a larger problem with the time change.
"It is not necessarily a challenge for me but with the little ones definitely. In the summertime trying to get them to bed and acclimated I would say that is the biggest challenge" he says.
Health experts say the time change may cause more damage than a few rough mornings. They say turning the clocks in any direction can cause seasonal affective disorder. Some people might even have heart issues due to sleep schedule changes.
While Heller says he doesn't have an issue with the clocks changing, he says health should always come first.
"I think if it is that serious and that dire I think they maybe need to rethink the time change and I think health and safety should come before commerce" Heller says.
It is a good idea to set your clocks Saturday before going to bed.
Fire officials say this is also a great time to make sure smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms are working properly.
