It’s time to change the clocks – spring forward!
Mark your calendar because it’s time to spring ahead! This weekend don’t forget to change the clocks forward to celebrate another beautiful season of springtime! The days are becoming longer, it won’t be long until we are enjoying hot summer evenings.
Did you know these time changes date back to Germany in 1915 due to an extra hour part of the year people would be asleep while it was light out, they could get better use out of that hour in the day plus save energy. Of course there is more to it than just that and over time Europe and most of Canada (not all of our provinces use daylight savings) eventually adopted the concept of switching the clocks back in fall and ahead in springtime. Who knew!
We are lucky to live in a time where most of technology does this task for us and social media is here to remind us. The worst is being late on Monday morning thanks to the time change!
Speaking of Monday morning, some people find it challenging during time change. The best advice I’ve heard before has always been – keep to your normal schedule. Before you know it, your schedule will be in sync with the time change!
