How DST Ticks-Off Your Body
Ahhh, those later in the day sunsets of daylight savings time. Does the time change work for your biology? Or do you not even notice? According to Buzzfeed, the time change impacts your body in different ways.
They state that “DST disrupts your circadian rhythm — the 24-hour body clock that’s governed by light — by forcing it to follow an unnatural schedule until November when the clocks switch back to standard time.” “Unnatural schedule” eh? Some of keep one of those every day anyway.
They add, “Even if you pay no attention to the time, just about every tissue, organ, and cell in your body has an internal clock. So pushing those gears one hour forward can have consequences that could last for weeks or maybe even months.”
Which time of year do you prefer? Do you think they should do away with Daylight Savings Time all together?
For me, my nap schedule remains the same year-round, and since today, fittingly enough is “National Nap Day,” I’m off to catch a few winks on the couch, Dagwood Bumstead style! And I’ll probably be ready for a Dagwood-sized snack when I wake up. https://nationaltoday.com/national-napping-day/
