Get ready to fall back — and have a sunnier morning commute! The end of Daylight Savings Time 2016 is quickly approaching, which means it's that confusing time of year again when everyone scrambles to remember whether they have to turn their clocks forward or backward.

This year, the clocks fall back an hour on Sunday, November 6, meaning everyone gets a much-needed extra 60 minutes of sleep when 2 a.m. becomes 1 a.m. (And don't take that additional slumber for granted, because you'll lose it when Daylight Savings Time returns on March 12, 2017!)

As always, Daylight Savings Time is a good time to remember to swap the batteries in your family's smoke and carbon monoxide detectors for fresh ones. You know, because safety first.

Another friendly reminder: Most areas of the United States observe DST, except for Arizona, Hawaii and several overseas territories, including Puerto Rico, the United States Virgin Islands, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and American Samoa.

Wondering how to spend your bonus hour on November 6? The easiest answer is to take full advantage of Sunday morning and stay in bed a bit longer — rewatch your favorite episode of Friends on Netflix, or spend a few extra minutes catching up on Chrissy Teigen's latest Twitter rant (you won't regret it, we promise).

And if you're not the lazy type, head to your local bagel store and treat yourself to a breakfast sandwich and a grande non-fat, extra foam, three-shot pumpkin spice latte.

Whatever you do: Don't forget to turn back the clocks at or before 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 6!
