Daylight Savings Time: Clock Change

Do not forget.  Gentle Reminder:

Change your clocks back one hour on the First Sunday in November at 2 am.

Yeh right I can picture you getting up and changing all of your clocks!!

So by reading this little post you are reminded to change your clocks.

And….

…..fall back one full hour!!

“With leaves swirling and an autumn chill in the air, nature reminds us it’s time  for most Americans to set the clock back.”

And your watches.

And clocks in your car.

And check your computer, smartphonem DVD, microwave, oven and anything else with a little clockster in it.

Because it’s that good old “we get an extra hours worth of sleep” time.

Plus take this time to replace the batteries in your smoke alarm.

But if you have sleeping problems:

“Tips for return of daylight standard time

Early Sunday, daylight-saving  time ends. You get an extra hour – to sleep or do whatever you want – so you  shouldn’t complain.

But the change can still be a bit discombobulating.

Here are  some tips to make the change smoothly.
1. Reset your clocks early  Saturday so you can start to adjust to the time shift. (Do remember not to mess  up any appointments.)
2. Try to shift your bedtime in increments – it  may help.
3. You may feel extra-hungry because your meals will come  later. Again, try to shift eating times incrementally.
4. Kids might  find their outdoor play time cut short by the early darkness. You might want to  come up with some indoor games to help them burn off a little energy before  bedtime.
5. Be aware of and plan for comfort and safety issues,  especially with older kids who may be walking home in the dark. Parents might  have to do more schlepping.
6. Try to make time today and during the  day Saturday to get outside and see some sunshine, so that you don’t feel too  daylight-deprived.
