DST

We of the THPL type count on every hour of the week to be used properly so we can meet our goals and objectives.  And this weekend, at least in the US (and soon to be in other locations around the world) we lose an hour as we “spring forward” to daylight savings time.  And while winter may still have a few tricks up its sleeve we are one step closer to spring when daylight saving time begins this weekend and we leave standard time behind for the next eight months.  We lose an hour of sleep, but it’s a small price to pay for that extra hour of evening sunlight. Once daylight saving time begins, most of the country will enjoy daylight lasting until after 7 p.m.  This month marks 100 years since daylight saving time was first used in the United States. The semiannual clock-tinkering ritual began in Europe two years earlier and eventually made its way across the pond as a way to save coal and energy during World War I.  And while it is curious that we do this it has become part of how our traditions play out in our lives.  And it is just one more example of how we can affect how we live our lives.  We can adjust and make changes, as strange as they might be if we believe them to be to our benefit.  So, let’s try to get in one more run, walk, or hike with the additional daily sunlight that is there for the taking.  It is good for all, indeed it is!
