For many of us, the first weekend in November is the week we turn our clocks back and change from Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time. As a result, this weekend is an extra hour long! Woo-hoo! Free time! What will you do with your extra hour?
Happening as it does, at 2 a.m., many of us will be sleeping during the actual extra hour. And, some will "sleep in" or at least lounge in bed until the clock shows their usual rising time. The extra hour of sleep can be a terrific gift for someone who is usually too busy to get their 40 winks!
If you haven't been making the time you should to "stop and smell the roses," now you have an extra hour. Although this isn't the season for roses, in many part of the country, you can still get some fresh air, some gentle exercise and maybe a little Vitamin D. A leisurely stroll is a great way to spend at least part of your extra hour.
I'll bet there's someone in your life who would love to hear from you! How about grabbing a piece of paper, an envelope and a stamp and writing and sending a real old fashioned postal letter? Not up for that? Then send off a nice newsy email, make a phone call, or (if you must) post to your Facebook wall.
If your first thought was of disposable diapers, when you read this item's title, then you need this suggestion more than most! Use your extra hour for a little spa treatment. Relax in a warm bubbly tub, get a mani or a pedi (or both), or ask for a massage. Use your free time for the indulgence you deserve!
Never have the time to read for fun? Now you have an hour! Pick up the popular novel you've been trying to get to or sit down with a magazine and do more than just flip through it. Or, as long as you're here, read a variety of lists!
Nice job on this list!
I vote for sleep! H5
Letter writing....the lost art!
I just love that hour and after baby sitting all day, I will spend it wisely! Catching up on some of my writing will work!
I can do 4 and 5 at the same time. I always consider reading a form of pampering myself. : )
My favorite part of going back to standard time is brighter mornings! Yea, sunshine!
Good ListMy5 ideas to spend the hour. I like Fall better than Spring.
I have to work, so I guess it means I get to sleep in an hour before having to be at work. Wouldn't it be nice if we had a magic button we could push that would give us an extra hour upon request?
I plan on sleeping for my extra hour when the time changes! That is what I prefer to do with my non-existent extra time. Thanks for posting this on List My Five.
