You’d have to have been on a deserted island, or something like that, to not know Daylight Savings 2023 has kicked in. Yeah, just a couple of days ago. How’s it going for you so far? I’m checking out if it helps by sending you this rare evening email. Because it’s still light outside.
Daylight savings 2023 is the same as previous years.
Right? I mean, does it feel any different to you? Yeah, I’m not a fan of losing that hour of sleep on the first Sunday when it kicks in on the second Sunday of March.
And it’s funny (not ha ha funny) how daylight savings time doesn’t actually save daylight. Or time for that matter. In fact, it doesn’t even save resources like electricity anymore. And that was one of the most important reasons for putting it in place for some people.
According to an article I read, daylight savings time has been in place in nearly all of the United States since the 1960s. It was first tried in 1918. And daylight savings time was used, year-round, during World War Two. President Franklin Roosevelt called it “War Time.”
Then, the year-round version was put in place again in 1973. Supposedly to reduce energy use because of an oil embargo. But it was repealed the next year. And since then, America, except for Arizona and Hawaii, has been on the back and forth version we have now.
So, once again you and I had to set our wristwatches (remember those?), the clock on the coffee maker, and the clock on the stove and microwave an hour ahead before going to bed Saturday night. Because you sure don’t wanna look silly, on Sunday morning, when you’re late for breakfast and everything after that. Right?
Good news (maybe it’s good anyway) is that the back and forth stuff might stop this year. A lot of the people, in Congress, who have power over decisions like this, have voted to not go back to standard time this coming fall.
As for me, I think it would be nice to leave time and daylight alone.
Hard to say whether Daylight Savings 2023 is the last time we have to move the clocks or not. But I firmly believe your focus should be on what you can get done during whatever the daylight hours are.
And that’s where I come in. Because I can help you get more done in the hours you’re awake. No matter which hours those are.
My RondaReady System won’t save you any daylight. But it can certainly make it seem like you have more daylight hours. At least my clients and I have enjoyed that feeling for years.
You should book a free call with me so we can talk about it more in-depth. Use that handy calendar, below, and let’s talk soon. Because I might be able to help you save a whole lot more than daylight.
