Daylight Savings Time
So, just to complicate our lives, Daylight Savings Time starts on Sunday. Yes, it is the curse of the “spring forward” at 2 a.m. on Sunday morning.
I don’t know about you but I have been feeling extremely upbeat about the days being longer. There is nothing more depressing than getting up in the dark and leaving work in the dark.
I will admit, only to you, that I have more trouble with the time change than I should. According to one school of thought, it should take you one day per hour to adjust to a time change. I think that means that on Monday, you should be be adjusted. That is not the case for me and I am sure I am not alone. I have read that there are more car accidents on that Monday morning than other Monday mornings.
So, you might want to get to bed a bit earlier on Sunday night and not try and rush off so early on Monday. Make sure you are really awake before heading out to work. With all those groggy people heading into to work, maybe the thing to do is to have a dance party first thing Monday morning so that people wake up when they start their work day.
(Okay, I am having too much fun imagining that. How about you? Are you smiling?)
Happy time change!
