Problems may get worse Sunday for trouble sleepers with Daylight Savings Time, the annual rite of moving the clock forward each spring.  Along with changing your clocks, fire officials remind you to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

According to sleep experts, even losing an hour of sleep can cause decreased alertness and more accidents in spring.  Experts offer these tips:

• Stick to the routine.
• Eat meals on time or 30 minutes earlier.
• Go to bed earlier on Saturday.
• Don’t sleep late Sunday.

Daylight Savings Time starts at 2 a.m. Sunday.
