I clean when I go hypomanic too. I'm weird. I get depressed in summer and hypomanic in the winter.

Sorry but I was told it was to give people more sunlight in the summer to do things,

I'm fairly certain the crops can't tell time. As for the farmers, they're always up with the sun. I can't think that the time on a click really alters that.

I believe is use to have something to do with the crops. Also to give people more sunlight in the summer.
I live in Arizona and we do not have Day Light Savings Time.

Is daylight savings really necessary? Why do they do that crap to us?

I have the same problem. Last night I forgot to take my 7 pm medication until 10 pm. Messed me all up!! I didn't fall sleep until 11:30 pm. Then I had to get up at 5:30 am. It is to light here until about 9 pm. I get an surge of energy about 8 pm, even if I have taken my medication. My body clock changed with daylight savings time. Always messes me up!!

Harder to get to sleep, yes. It's light too late now. I might not have as much problem falling asleep if it weren't for the kids. Some of these nights I feel like it's more like 5pm even if it's after 8 from all the sunlight still streaming in. Last night it was almost 1am before I got to sleep. Today it's a bit dreary out, so the late bedtime is rearing it's ugly head.

I noticed a change in March. I was less depressed, had difficulty sleeping, and more energy.
I have learned by trial and error to follow some of the guidelines in the article. When I have the extra energy I try to direct it into some positive activities. Usually things neglected when my energy level is lower. It is okay if I don't cross the line. My first sign is that I want to clean.
May not by hypomania in its true form, but a definite change.

I never reacted to the seasons before but this last year it has kicked in. I noticed I was definitely battling depression when winter came around and when spring stuck it's head out this year I've been battling hypo mania every since. It's all new to me and a little frustrating. It is starting to get under control but you would think spring would just bring happiness not hypo mania. It's kind of fascinating in some way how our bodies react for those with bipolar. How increased light can cause such an effect!

So this is both a little late for the season (and a bit late considering the publication date, oops), but it is concerning the change of sesons from the winter weather into spring and summer. It seems as though it is a trend that the warm and pleasant weather brings an increase in hypomanic episodes.

What are your thoughts on this? In your experience, do you find that you fall into the spring hypomania group, or not so much?

I definitely notice some sort of change within myself. Whether it's really hypomania, I'm not sure, but I'm happy to be out of the funk I had been in.
