Is it just me or did turning the clocks hurt a little more this year. And don’t get me wrong, I actually love Daylight Savings. I love the longer days. Here in the Pacific Northwest, summer means long days with lots of (potential) sunshine.
Maybe it was because I was up late on Thursday night watching the news about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Then I was up late again on Friday night – well because it was Friday night. Then again Saturday night I went to bed about an hour later than normal and got up an hour earlier than normal.
I have two small sons, ages six and two. Our routines are just that – routines. At least for us, our kids don’t sleep in on the weekends. Regardless of the day, wake up time is 7am and I insist on bedtime being consistently around 8:30pm. Experts say it is best to go to bed and wake up around the same time everyday. I believe this and abide by it.
As your self-proclaimed Time Management Guru, I thought I’d share my experiences with you. Basically I am saying – I have no idea how to get this hour back without a nap. Who knew a one hour jump could make me so sleepy.
I hope you are having a good Monday and your adjustment to the new times has gone smoothly.
