The transition to winter time in Ukraine in 2018

The transfer of hours to winter and summer time began to be practiced in the 18th century. Benjamin Franklin, the then US ambassador to France, proposed this option in order to save candles. After all, the amount of funds used to illuminate housing was then truly enormous. In Ukraine, the transition process is regulated and fixed by a resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers, which was adopted in 1996.

What for?

Seasonal change of time occurs in more than 100 countries around the world. Moving hours ahead is considered expedient to save electricity, and winter time is astronomical. That is, one that meets and coincides with the biological rhythms of man, and according to which this person himself is most comfortable to live.

The main reason why Ukrainians continue to get used to a longer night and a day that is becoming shorter is more efficient use of light time and, again, energy savings.

Attempts to abandon such "manipulations" were made in 2011. But then the public was skeptical about the existence of a permanent “summer time” and the draft law was never supported in the Verkhovna Rada.

When will the night be longer again? In fact, there is no need to guess. It is enough to refer to the same resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers “On the procedure for calculating time in Ukraine”, where it is clearly stated that in 2018 this will happen, as it has done before, on the last Sunday of October at 4:00 in the morning.

Studies of physicians have revealed that such changes, unfortunately, do not have the best effect on a person and his health. There are sleep disorders, depression, fatigue, irritability. To make it a little easier to adapt to the transfer of time, doctors recommend going to bed 15-30 minutes earlier, going to bed before going to bed for a warm shower, or drinking a cup of hot tea / milk. Fruits are also one of the best helpers in such a period.

Be vigorous and full of energy. And let the number of hours in a day is enough for you to accomplish everything that was planned.
