Time change: More sleep for you soon

Time change: More sleep for you soon

Thursday, October 28, 2021 at 3:24 pm – In a few days, Quebec will return to Eastern Standard Time. On the night of November 6th to 7th, we have to withdraw our watches. By 2:00 am, it will actually be 1:00 am.


This is the moment when Quebec changed to Eastern Standard Time. On the first Sunday in November, Quebecs must reschedule. November 6 to 7 at 2:00 pm, it will officially be 1:00 pm. So you sleep for an hour. However, you will also miss 60 minutes of daylight in the afternoon.

Possible effects

The effect on the human body is not insignificant. Turning the clock back also affects our body clock, but the effects are most evident during the spring shift. Some people struggle with sleep or mood problems or lose the ability to concentrate. Dr. Mark Therian believes that changing time or adapting to saving time during the day is a very bad idea.

“Scientific literature strongly advocates changes between standard time and daylight saving time, and more strongly argues against adopting permanent daylight saving time,” Dr. Therian explained. Leaders of several countries are considering canceling the time change, But the company has some challenges.

Good to know:

  • Time changes take place on the first Sunday in November and the second Sunday in March;
  • The six time zones in Canada are 4:30 p.m .;
  • Quebec will reset the night clock from November 6 to 7, 2021.
