Good morning guys aka my God Brothers and Sisters! Hope you all are doing well today. It's almost that time of year again, when you're we're on the border of one season ending and another beginning. Winter's on its way out with its cold, dark and often wet and dreary, dead days and gives way to all things new in Spring..sunshine, flowers in bloom, newness all around and more "daylight"! Yes it's almost Daylight Savings Time!!!! I'll never understand why we continue to host this "bi-annual, world wide tradition" of setting time back an hour in the fall, then springing forward in the spring.
Originally, it was thought to have been created as a means to save energy as people back in the day had to use candles for everyday living, from cooking to heating their homes. Then again it was said to have been re-enacted before the wars to save fuel, and once again, I read that it had been put into effect because people in the farming industries wanted more day light to work in. So come on people, which is it... to conserve energy, or fuel or light?!
According to TIME Magazine, there's also an increase in deaths, around the time of these changes as it tends to throw off peoples natural rhythms. Please forgive us dear Lord, for we know not, what we do. "But" I do know personally, that as soon as my body adjusts to the loss of an hour in the fall, it takes me awhile to get back on track and as my body adjusts and time passes, then before I know it, it's time to do it all over again in the spring.
Anyway don't forget to set your clocks forward an hour, to pick it back up on Sunday, March 8, 2020 and try to get more rest in the days ahead, so you'll have a reserve to work with. I know that's what I plan to do! : P
