What have you done differently to ease the adjustment? We are eating meals earlier and plan to go to bed earlier. It isn't a big problem for us. Clocks are set over here.

I am retired so I go to bed when I am tired and wake up when I want. Another plus for retirement.

Why can't they split the difference and move clocks a half hour and leave them there all the time?

Spring messes with me more than fall.

Shoot! I forgot about that. I can't afford to lose an hour!

I keep hearing our state is talking about not changing anymore, but I don't know when that might happen. I'm ready! I spent the majority of my adult life living in states that didn't change. So glad my kids were raised in those states Time change with young kids is tough, I think.

I don't do anything special. I am excited to have more daylight in the evenings! It also makes it feel like we are one step closer to summer.

The change never used to bother me but it has hit me hard the past couple of years.

I know my teenager will refuse to go to bed early and the next few mornings will be even less fun than usual.

Not special but

I usually set my household clocks forward Saturday afternoon or early evening when it is not likely to be noticed. Then I carry on the rest of the day and night as usual.

To me, that usually gives me an extra day to adjust. I too do not normally feel many effects either but really notice it in my students.

I like getting the extra hour in the fall, but not losing it in the spring.
For many years, we had our spring standardized testing fall out the Monday after changing clocks. Great planning on the part of those who made up the school calendar obviously, people who had been out of the classroom waaay too long.

Even though Im retired I still hate this change. I wish we would stick to a time and be done with it. The sun is going to set and rise no matter what time it is.
