The Gift of an Hour

Time Change = the Gift of an Hour
We turned our clocks back one hour last weekend and while knowing that most do not like the switch due to losing the after-work daylight, I personally feel that it is nice to be aligned with Mother Nature and the true timetable of the sun. And, there is a recently discovered physiological advantage--most people sleep better once we return to the standard time--so look forward to the beginning of more restful slumber Saturday.
But now to the true benefit--the gift of an hour!
What will you do with that extra time?
Is your life jam-packed and over-scheduled? How about practicing the art of self-care by sleeping in an extra hour?
Did you download one of the recent best sellers thinking you would savor a good read? Then get cozy in your favorite chair with a glass of wine or a cup of hot tea and enjoy your literary selection.
Have you missed long conversations with your best friend? Catch-up by phone, meet for a leisurely brunch or make a “walk and talk” date.
The possibilities are endless and the hour belongs to you!
Perhaps dedicating this one hour to a personal pleasure will lead to a very special, beneficial and ongoing habit.
