The Dangers Of Daylight Savings Time.

 

On average, people go to work or school on the first Monday of Daylight Savings after sleeping 40 fewer minutes than normal. And recent studies have found there's a higher risk of heart attacks, traffic accidents and workplace injuries on the first Monday of Daylight Savings. Here are a couple of tips to help cope with the time change. Medical News Today. 11 Mar 2010.

I really dislike Daylight Savings! It was after 3 am before I fell asleep. :emoticon-insomnia: But apparently the hubby realized it because I don't remember he getting up and then I woke up a little before 9 am (late for me). Now I'm just too tired to have a heart attack. It's 9:30 am and I think it's nappy time already. :lol:

I need to have my blood work done. Today was supposed to be the day. The nurses are only in until 2pm. I just couldn't get myself up and going in time. I guess I will be trying again tomorrow.

I think my hubby got up and off to work in time - I woke up to a cold cup of tea beside the bed and that's usually a good sign. I ate breakfast sometime, got a pot of stew going and went out to work in the garden for a while. When himself got home I was still out there and was surprised when he apologized for being late for supper! I just came in and hey, it's a quarter to seven already. Oh boy, it's gonna hurt tomorrow~

I love this retired thing. Outside of having to change a few clocks, I ignore it. The goats and horses want to eat at the same time no matter what the clock says. So up with the sun.

Those who have to go to work have my sympathy- I remember hating it. :(
