Here are a few tips to prepare for the time change this weekend.
Don’t ask why we even have daylight-saving time in this day and age. It’s a legit question, but really, it is what it is.
Just get ready, instead, for a few things: one, you will set your clocks back one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday; two, you will prepare yourself for the reality that you may come home from work in darkness; and three, you will have one extra hour of sleep on Sunday morning.
What you do with that extra hour is, of course, up to you, but here are a few classic and recycled ideas:
- Sleep. Quite honestly, who really does anything else?
- Take a walk.
- Highly motivated people may want to use that hour to clean their gutters, change their passwords, create their emergency-preparedness kits and change the batteries in their smoke alarms.
- Bake something delicious.
- Luxuriate with a good book.
