Daylight Savings Time started last Sunday (just in case you missed it) and the annual event, which now comes three weeks EARLIER is enough to make me jump on the Arizona bandwagon. This changing of the clock is brutal and it's the only thing that makes me despise springtime.
Now, there is nothing I can do about the tilt of earth and how the seasons change. And I don't want to change that. But, tracking time is a human invention and the decision to manipulate time and make it serve us is ridiculous. My body knows this and that is why, every spring, I go through a trip to the underworld. In short, I lose so much sleep that it takes several months to recover. I figured it out and the time change ends up costing me 15 DAYS of sleep. So, in the fall, when we "get" our hour back, it isn't even a drop in the bucket compared to what I've lost.
Today I couldn't handle the sleep deprivation any longer and I had to take a nap. I told myself I would just take 30 minutes so I could still make my workout. I slept for an hour. And I'm still tired. I wish there was a way to take a two week vacation and just sleep. That would help a bit. Anyone know how to take a vacation from life?
