The clients I work with always say with exasperation when I first speak with them, “I wish I had more time!” Or, “I have too much to do and not enough time!” Or, “There aren’t enough hours in the day!” You get the picture.
There’s great news if you feel the same way!
Once a year, you are gifted with a bit of relief. But if you’re like most folks, you forget that you’ve received this gift until you show up at the wrong time to a function, you turn on a football game and it’s already in progress or you’ve missed it, or someone mentions the time and you realize you forgot. With so many digital devices that automatically change the time, you might not even realize you missed anything.
What’s that gift? The end of Daylight Saving Time. Each year in late fall, we “fall back” one hour to adjust our clocks for Daylight Saving Time. This year, the time change happens at 2:00 A.M. on Sunday, November 1, 2020. The gift is one “extra” hour of time.
When should you change your clocks? You can choose to set your clocks back before you go to bed or when you wake up in the morning. Either way, you’ll get that extra hour.
But that’s not the important question. The most important question to ask is: What do you want to do with that hour?
Spend quality time with your family
Arrange for a Zoom meetup with loved ones outside of your household?
Get an extra hour of sleep
Plan healthy meals for the week and create your grocery lists
Make preliminary plans for your next vacation
Stretch or meditate
Straighten up your living areas
Hang that wall décor that’s been in boxes for a year
Scrub down the bathrooms and kitchen
Tidy up your landscaping
Start on that project you’ve been putting off
When Daylight Saving Time ends, how will you take advantage of your bonus hour?
