It’s that time of the year again; yep, time to change our clocks racing one hour ahead. Day light saving is such a bittersweet time and I am sure all of you agree. We hate changing the clock because that means losing one extra hour of sleep. However, we also enjoy the extra hour of day light that marks the long spring and summer nights.
I personally love day light saving. During spring and summer, I love having longer days that imply more time and availability to do the things I want. And during fall and winter, I love that the cool nights start earlier than usual to have more time to snuggle and watch my favorite movies and drink hot cocoa. Basically, I see spring and summer as months to be productive and fall and winter as seasons to lounge and cozy. Boy I sound like a bear, don’t I? 😊 Omg, speaking of fall and winter, I just had a serious craving for Peppermint Cider too! ☹
Okay then! Today I am going to share some things you can do with that extra hour during day light saving. If you already have plans of your own, please do share them in the comments section below. Otherwise keep reading and get inspired!
