Boston's Guide to Getting Through Daylight Savings Time

The clocks are going forward on Sunday 27th March at 1am and I am not happy about it. I love sleep.

I love every minute of it, in fact, the idea that I’m losing a whole 60 minutes of it leaves us with one unhappy puppy!

"Why do they go forwards?"

A man named William Willet is the reason we’re all getting less sleep this weekend. He didn’t want people to waste perfectly good daylight so he proposed that we change the clocks at different times of the year so we could get as much sunshine as possible.

While this is a noble endeavour, it doesn’t take away the fact that we’re all going to be a little bit grumpier on Sunday.

"What about my sleep pattern?"

As we have discussed before, waking at different times can play havoc on your sleep pattern. After you’ve put so much effort into getting into a sleep-friendly routine, it would be a shame to go and mess it all up now. Here are some ways to prepare this weekend to wake up fresh as a daisy on Tuesday!

See, it doesn’t have to be an awful experience. Follow my advice and you won’t even notice the clocks going forward. I, however, am going to ignore all of that and stay in bed. What did you expect? I’m a puppy!
