This Sunday at 2AM daylight savings time ends and it's time to roll back the clock - aka "Fall Back". If you're like me, you enjoy the extra hour of sleep that comes with falling back. For some people, the one hour time change becomes an issue. It's like flying on a plane and trying to make the adjustment.
Here are some tips that I try to easily make it throught the time change:
- Stay up a little later the night before (and extra 30-60 min usually means waking later)
- Close the blinds so you get in as little light as possible
- On Sunday, if you wake up on time (an hour later than usual), stay up a it later again
- Don't drink caffeine or too much alcohol either Saturday or Sunday
For anyone interested in the history of daylight savings time, take a look at the entry at Wikipedia. It's interesting to note that the foundation for daylight savings began with the railroads instituting standard time in time zones. With the advent of rapid travel and communication, the need for standard time became clear. It wasn't until 1918 that it officially became law (repealed a year later) and the concept of daylight savings was established.
Have a great weekend!
