Re: Time Change - Oct 2020

A sad day for Carol's family and friends - the 7th anniversary of her tragic death- as she was caught out on a cliff in the dark, having probably forgotten about the time change. The change always brings great sadness since then. RIP Carol.

Re: Time Change - Oct 2020

Waking up to daylight is a boost of energy, I have to say. In the midst of Covid stress and all the other, I noticed that day light makes a big difference in the morning this year. <3

Why is it dumb to have a different opinion? Or to react differently to daylight in the morning or the evening?

Re: Time Change - Oct 2020

A bit hard this year as it coÔncides with the full moon. But honestly, I just love the longer evenings- so I am all for the change.

I feel like I am wading through treacle, utterly exhausted. Trying to mitigate this by some HIIT in the morning and drinking plenty of water, but my brain feels foggy too. Meh.

Not for me, but hubby's on holiday this week so we're getting up later than usual anyway.

Jet lag for a one hour time shift? Mine gott I used to regularly have 9-12 hour shifts and although they werenít a doddle I never felt like I was wading through treacle. (whatever that is).

My Ďbestí trip was travelling on a Sunday from Geneva via London, Bangkok and Sydney to Canberra to learn that my meeting had been cancelled. Straight back to the airport to fly via Melbourne, Singapore and London arriving back Tuesday afternoon (or was it Wednesday). No jet lag at all.
*slow clap*
Well done you.

I've been fighting insomnia on and off for several months now and usually only manage to sleep at 2 am, sometimes later. That has now turned into 3 am and I still have to get up in time to start work at 8.30. And the sleep I do get is fitful and doesn't feel restorative.

Of course, you magical creatures who only need 5 hours sleep to be happy will think this all rather hilarious but my bottom limit is 7, the ideal is 8.5 - if I go under 7 hours several night in a row, my body reminds me that I have lupus. If I accrue a consistent sleep deficit over several months as is the case now, everything feels like an uphill struggle all the time.

Now go be smug somewhere else. Kthxbye.

I'm sure we all sympathise, but now you've given more detail in your other post it's clear that you can't blame this all on the clock change.

It seems that your sleep patterns are all over the place anyway, but your body clock, dysfunctional as it may be, will easily be able to adjust to the one hour difference, so at worst any additional effect from it will disappear in a day or so.

Courage!

Personally I'm enjoying the extra hour or so of darkness in the morning, the light not waking me up earlier than I want, although that will only last a couple of weeks anyway, but still.

Re: Time Change - Oct 2020

This will sound weird but listening my own heels quickly walk through sleepy and empty town early morning wakes me, no matter of light or dark. But I am so tired around 7pm and often crash, without wanting it much, feels so kindy. Then wake up at 2-3am. Strange cycle, I think teacher cycle actually. I was wondering about getting melatonine. This time shift feels a bit hard to get used to this year.
