Hate “springing forward”? Not me! Why daylight savings time is fabulous
It's understandable -- most people feel hung over on Monday from “springing forward”. Enter lots of grumbles. But here’s why I love DST….
#1) Taking hospital call on the spring time change weekend? 1 less hour of call is always a good thing!
#2) The cats’ circadian rhythms are less aggressive at 5am. For a while.
#3) Leaving work in the dark isn’t any fun. There’s something to be said for going for a walk after work.
#4) I’m a morning person.
#5) Who wants to wake up at 6 or 6:30 and it’s already light out? Not me. It’s nice to get some dark-to-dawn so as to ease into the day.
