Hey New Englanders: Don’t Forget About The Time Change This Weekend
It's time to "fall back." Hopefully, this blog will serve to remind someone who would have otherwise forgotten.
Daylight Savings Time is officially over as of 2 a.m. on Sunday morning, which means we gain an extra hour to do whatever we want with it. Why we still observe this antiquated ritual is a mystery to me. Sure, we get more daylight hours in the evening in the summer; but that also means it gets darker earlier in the winter. Many people, including me, literally get sad during the dark and cold months. If I remember correctly from studying about "SAD," or seasonal affective disorder, lack of sunlight is one of the contributing factors to this very real mental health problem.
If I had it my way, we would have daylight hours in the evening year round. It makes more sense. However, I will enjoy my extra hour of sleep this weekend. Luckily, with technology, the only two clocks I'll have to change are the ones in my car and on my stove.
