Wondering when Daylight Saving Time 2014 starts? As Spring approaches, this is always a top search on Google, with many wondering which day they should turn their clocks ahead and when they will lose an hour of sleep.

This year, Daylight Saving Time (DST) begins on March 9, 2014 at 2 a.m. If you have trouble remembering which way to turn your clock, it's easiest if you remember the saying, "Spring Forward and Fall Back."

Turn your clock ahead (spring forward) at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 9 and turn them back an hour when DST ends on Nov. 2, 2014.

Just about everyone in the U.S. will lose an hour of sleep after turning their clocks ahead on March 9, but there are some areas that do not observe Daylight Saving Time, including Arizona (with some exceptions), Hawaii, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and American Samoa.

If you live in a state that observes the start of DST, make sure you turn your clocks ahead before you go to sleep, so you will wake up to the correct time.

Of course, you might feel a little groggy in the morning because of the time change, but there is some good news! In return for setting your clock ahead, you will benefit from an extra hour of daylight on Sunday, March 9, 2014.
