How did you fare with the recent “spring forward” in time? I find the brighter evenings make the sting of losing an hour much easier to bear.
I have a bit of a challenge, though, with the Energy Policy Act of 2005 which advanced the start of daylight savings time in the spring of 2007 from April to mid-March, and delayed the reversal in the fall from October to November. Apparently Congress retained the right to revert to earlier laws should it prove unpopular…and they would have my vote to do so.
I get up around 7am every day. With the change I felt plunged back into darkness and less energized to get up. There is something natural about rising with the sun. I’m curious – did anyone else feel like their natural enthusiasm for spring was zapped, and not just because of the cooler weather? I’d love to hear how it affected you.
