2 Ways I'm Adjusting

Shifting my schedule each Fall for daylight savings time makes me feel like I’m losing an hour of my day. In reality I still have the same 24 hours in a day as you do. We all have a reason or excuse to buck changes like these.

Here are 2 ways I’ve chosen to help the adjustment: 

  1. Cook more dinners in the crockpot…I’ll have extra daylight time when I get home from work to feed and take care of my animals instead of cooking. *This will also ensure a great fiber-rich dinner instead of rushing to put something together that may not have been as good of a choice.
  2. Go to work 1 hour earlier two to three days a week…I really enjoy going on bike rides with my husband to get our activity in. He already gets off work early, so I’ll just match his schedule a few days.

It takes me a little while to alter my to-do list and life events, but eventually I conform and accept the shift. Planning ahead for any changes we foresee can only make it easier.

What changes are coming up you need to plan for? Start strategizing now.
