Does this time change bother anyone else?

Sunday, March 14, 2010

Today has been such a struggle. I knew the time change was coming, my body could feel it. It never fails every year about this time sleep becomes a big issue. I not only have trouble falling asleep (even when I am dead tired), but I wake up 3 to 4 times a night (always at the exact same times). I have no problem in the fall, that extra hour of sleep is great. Of course my day got off to a slow start with waking up an hour later than normal. My whole day was thrown off. It was a gloomy, dark day which didn't help matters any. I could not muster up motivation to do much of anything. Had I not had a challenge for one of my spark team challenges (thanks to the Gold's Gym Cardio spark team) I don't think I would have gotten off the couch for anything. I have tried several different things over the years to try to combat this but have had no success. I've read the articles about it as well. I just would like to have a full night's sleep before fall comes!!

    ...I'm still struggling with it. It usually doesn't bother me much, but I'm really feeling it this week!! Plus I've got a cold, so that's not helping, either.

    I don't like the time change - do you realize we're on DST more than half the year in the US? I like "high noon" to be when the sun is highest in the sky. Imagine the old cowboys having a shoot out - "I'm callin' ya out, Deadeye, at high noon!" "Wait, Black Bart - do ya mean at 12 noon, or when the sun is highest n the sky?"

    yeah, I never understood the time change thing... so the sun is up at 5am it is no matter to me because I am still sleeping....just keep it to one time please. I also don't get how it is earlier and later in the year now for shopping how would time change help that?

    I'm dragging today. I hate that it is dark outside in the mornings. And I didn't know there was a Gold's Gym Cardio team. I have that game. I'm going to join that team. Maybe it'll motivate me too.

    I need to get that game again The Gold's Gym Cardio. Anyways the time change usually always effects me since I had to work but I didn't have to work today so it didn't effect me this year.
