DETROIT (WWJ) – It’s that time of year where  you should have turned your clocks  back an hour .

Daylight Savings  Time is over…the change to standard time occured at 2 a.m. this morning.

By “falling back,” we’ll see more daylight in the morning, but that also means it will get darker earlier.

After getting an extra hour of sleep  you may feel like you’re catching up on some shuteye. But Daylight Saving Time can actually change your body rhythm.

As WWJ’s Jayne Bower reports, Doctor Alfred Lewy from the Oregon Health and Science University,  said while you may not feel sleep deprived, it could take up to a week to shift your body clock.

Authorities say it’s a good idea to change the batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms when you set your clocks back.

Daylight saving time will resume the second Sunday in March.
