Woof. Missing just one hour from this past weekend made for a brutal Monday. Our whole family's sleep schedules were off, and I felt like I missed out on a half of a day vs. just one hour. After peeling myself, then each of my kids out of bed yesterday morning, I downed coffee and succeeded through my day. Leaving work is when the payoff of the lost hour is realized.
The light of Spring makes it all worth it. Leaving work in the daylight and more time to play outside after work/school makes us all feel a little better.
I've been relying a bit more on my Olly Sleep vitamins at night to kick start my sleepiness an hour earlier than it technically feels like. I'm already a night owl, so skipping ahead an hour messes with me longer than in the Fall when we lose an hour. I could easily be up until 1:30am right now.
How was your one-hour shorter weekend? Do you have any tips for adjusting to the time change?
