I hate to Spring Forward. I like the extra sunlight after work but man is it hard to get up for work that first Monday after changing the clocks. This morning was tough. If we can’t get rid of daylight savings here in my state I propose we should move the clock changing to 2:00 a.m. Saturday morning. That way we have Sunday to get acclimated to the new time. Or better yet we start changing the clock on Wednesday in 15 minute increments so by the time we get to Sunday it’s one hour forward and the physical and mental impact is minimal.
Every year the time change feels like jet lag from a trip to the east coast (I live in the central time zone) to attend an 8:00 a.m. meeting. Ever have one of those business trips? Those suck. The night before the meeting you wake up every 30 minutes to check the clock, worried you’re going to miss the meeting cause its with the CEO or some V.P. You go into work and start chugging coffee like gatorade after a 5K run. I say 5K because I don’t think I’d want to walk much less run more than that.
Anyway, I’ve sprung forward and by Friday I should be acclimated. Like right now it’s 11:45 p.m. but my body thinks old time and it’s only 10:45.
