Spring Forward: Change Your Clocks One Hour Ahead

image

Isn’t this the truth? Think about it: we have one day out the year that is 23 hours and another that is 25 hours- we need transition time! Lol

Time to move those clocks one hour ahead before bedtime tonight! Our phones and tablets may change by themselves but you can never be sure. My smartphone did fail me once so I’m definitely using my regular ol’ digital alarm clock to wake up tomorrow.

By the way, check out some helpful tips by Premeditated Leftovers about what else to check for during Daylight Savings Time. Here are a few quoted:

“Replace the batteries in your Smoke Detector and Carbon Monoxide Detector.  Making sure to replace and test these devices twice a year can be the difference between life and death.  Make sure to help any elderly loved ones in your life as well.  If they can’t do it on their own, some fire departments have programs that will assist.

•  Reverse the direction on your ceiling fan.  In the Spring fan blades should rotate counter clockwise to help cool down the rooms.  In the Fall, switch the direction to clockwise which helps pull down the warm air that gets trapped near the ceiling.  Both of these measures help save cost on heating and cooling.

•  Flip and rotate your mattress to help promote even wear and tear. Unless you have a no flip mattress.  Then just rotate it.”

Enjoy your rest and have a great night!
