Change Your Clock, Change Your Life

I’m going to let you in on a little secret that might be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for to change your life…

It has recently come to my attention that everyone in your life: your boss, your coworkers, your clients, your customers, your spouse, your kids, your kids’ teachers, and everyone else in the world around you, will be running exactly one hour behind for everything starting this Sunday!

I know, it sounds too good to be true, but I assure you, this is 100% REAL.

If you seize this opportunity, and maintain an adjusted schedule, you will have an extra hour every single morning to do whatever you want!

Giving Back the “Saved” Daylight

Of course, I’m referring to the mystical process known as “The End of Daylight Savings,” which officially occurs on Sunday, at 2AM.

As we return to Standard Time, the clocks must “fall back” one hour, resulting a net gain of one additional hour of whatever you desire on Sunday.

For some, the extra hour is spent sleeping.

However, most admit that they tend to wake up according to their “biological clock” for a few days following this 60-minute time piece manipulation.

But why not keep your body on the schedule it has grown accustomed to since Daylight Savings began?

Plan Ahead

Here’s what you need to do to take advantage of this once a year time surplus: absolutely nothing.

Keep your body on Daylight Savings Time.

On Sunday night, go to bed at your body’s normal time, which will appear to be one hour early on your freshly adjusted Standard Time clock.

This should easily allow you to awaken feeling as rested as usual, one hour sooner (on the adjusted clock) than normal on Monday morning.

From this point, all you have to do is get out of bed and get busy becoming even better! 

Keep the Goal In Sight

On Monday night, as you head off to bed an hour before the time that you are accustomed to turn off the TV, remember that this adjustment in your lifestyle is well worth any effort it takes to stay in the routine.

Setting aside time to become better (journaling, reading, going to the gym, or whatever trips your trigger) will never fit easily into a busy schedule like yours, but it is possible.

And if you take advantage of the “free” hour that’s coming your way thanks to the confusing practice of “Saving Daylight,” you might increase your likelihood of success.

So, what’ll it be for you??? With your new schedule all set up and handed to you on a silver platter, what will you use that first precious 60 minutes for each morning? 

Choose to dedicate to an activity that will support you in becoming even better.

You can do this.
