How You Spend Your Extra Hour Matters

Clocks are moving back today for Daylight Savings and we get something we’ve asked for:  an extra hour in the day!

I am fascinated by how people use their extra hour.

  • Many will go to bed at the same time, wake up at the same time, and get an extra hour of sleep.
  • Some will sleep the same number of hours, but wake up early to a day with one more hour.
  • Others will stay up later working on something special.

How will you use your extra hour?

Do more research?  Write a blog post? Spend extra time with family?

Or, just watch more TV?

What you choose to do with your hour makes a statement.

8pm Warriors will use it.  Others will lose it.

Have a useful night,

  1. This time last year I started getting up at 2am! Usually I’m up at 4. The winter is strange for me! But nobody else gets up early so I have HOURS to myself! I love it. I read and write and get so much more done with that extra hour at the beginning of the day, the time of day that I’m the most awake. But when it hits 7pm the wave starts rolling in! I’m toast bt 8:30!

    1. Betsy, that’s ironic that you wake up when I go to bed. It’s kind of like an 8pm Warrior relay race. :-)

      I do enjoy the early mornings when I do them, however, usually I don’t have the patience to wait until I wake up to get at stuff.

  2. Great post, Aaron! We’re going to the early Mass because of the extra hour. We usually haul all the kids to church at 9:30 a.m., which puts us back home at 11:00 or so. Today, we’re leaving (in, like, 5 minutes) to attend the 7:30 a.m. Mass. We’ll get home by 9:00 a.m. and have more morning hours to listen to our Sunday music and fool around making breakfast with the kiddos (our beautiful chaos).

    1. Thanks Samantha! We did the same thing and I used part of my extra hour last night and part of it today with a special family lunch.

      I love your description of “Beautiful Chaos”. It’s so great!

      1. #BWELA was largely terrific. EVERYONE I met was great. Learned a bunch, but some of what I learned was mildly discouraging! THAT is a longer story. Look for my forthcoming 12Most about Blogworld!
