A Cheer for Daylight Saving Time

  • Print
Lets here it for Daylight Saving Time! The good news, we have more hours of daylight. The bad news, it usually takes a little time to adjust. I got plenty of sleep last night and woke up a little groggy. But after my usual morning workout, I felt pretty good. I am just happy it will not be dark at 5:30 pm. There's something about more daylight that does something to your psyche. I always feel like there's more time to run errands and get things done. Let's face it, when it starts to get dark outside, our natural instinct is to want to stay inside. Do you feel like you get more done when the days are longer? I do. I just kind of shut down the darker it gets. I'm just thrilled my husband was proactive enough to change the clocks in every room of the house. He did not miss one. That happened to me once. I was certain I had gotten all the clocks. But then there was once clock I forgot, and was getting ready for work thinking I had plenty of time left only to discover that clock was on the old time. Panic ensued, and I almost was late for a speech. Very unsettling! I'm sure you know by now that Daylight Saving time is aimed at saving energy. But I am sure that many will tell you that it also saves mental health, because I would guess now people are less likely to suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD. Now all we have to do is warm up enough to get the snow melted, and we are good to go.
