Something that struck me as odd was that I realized how much easier it has gotten to get going in the morning this week since the time changed. I’ve haven’t changed any of my morning habits. I don’t drink coffee so there’s no withdrawal or unexpected energy boost to speak of. I also still fall asleep around the same current time each night as I did last week. In theory, I should be snoozing through my first alarm as usual and hoisting my body out of my bed up at the usual time that my second alarm goes off, on its third snooze. Yes, I’m one of those risers. The only thing that has changed is that my first alarm now goes off an hour earlier than it did before. This is mainly because it needs a manual reset to adjust the time and I haven’t yet bothered. Now I spring awake and I get ready for the day with ease after about a year of struggling to adjust to being awake. So weird.
Either it has something to do with finally coordinating my waking with my natural sleep cycle or that I was meant to live/thrive in this fall-back timezone.
I love Fall.
How have you adjusted to the time change?
