‘What the Crap Man’?! Let’s Kill Daylight Saving Time
You know, sometimes stories come along in the news that are just 'not normal'. And, I shake my head, and say 'What the Crap Man'?!
Oh daylight saving time, let me count the ways that I loathe you.
I woke up WAY too early yesterday morning because of pushing the clocks back before bed Saturday night. Yeah, they say we get an extra hour of sleep. Well, it doesn't feel like it at all. In fact, I feel more tired, and spaced out. How about you? Daylight saving time does nothing but jack us all up for about 5 months, we get used to it, then we push the clocks back up in March. Fun fact, according to msn.com, DST was signed into law for the US not to help farmers, but, to help department stores who said that their sales increased with an extra hour of daylight in the spring/summer!
Studies show that moving the clocks back causes less productivity and seasonal depression in people. I feel as if I am living in the 'Upside Down' from Netflix's 'Stranger Things' right now! So, legislation for New England please continue the good fight to kill daylight saving time. I beg you! Because, it would be nice not to feel like a vampire living in the dark during the toughest time of year. Winter.
Boo to you Daylight Saving time!
