I love setting my clock back an hour every fall. Not only do we get to see a little more daylight during the dreariest part of the year, we receive the gift of time. An extra hour in our over-busy weeks to do with what we choose.
Some of us will choose to sleep, because that’s what we’re short on.
Or knit, because we haven’t picked up our needles since Thursday.
Some will use the hour to go for an early morning run or catch up on that workout they missed earlier this week or squeeze in some time on their yoga mat.
Perhaps you’ll spend that extra time with friends and family. Cooking a healthy, nourishing meal, enjoying a walk in the fallen leaves, curling up next to the fire with a steaming mug of herbal tea. Reading a book with your children.
Treat daylight savings as a gift of time. The gift of an hour to nurture yourself and honour your needs.
The gift of an extra hour. What will you do with yours?
