Daylight Saving Time can really tick you off. While losing an hour of productivity may seem like a minute issue to some, it is hour responsibility as productive people to change that. What follows are seven tips on how to gain your hour of productivity back.
- Shorten up your naps. Anything longer than 15 minutes just makes you feel groggy again.
- Change your clocks as soon as possible and don’t dwell on the past. Keep in mind that you will get this hour back in the fall.
- Eat meals when you are hungry and do not base your eating schedule on the new time.
- Go to bed earlier and get up earlier. This will boost your productivity immensely.
- Take showers for 1 minute less every day for 60 days.
- For those living in Ohio, move West (ex. Indiana) and when fall comes around, move back. Because they are an hour behind, you will not even feel a thing.
- Overcompensate. If you fly to foreign countries, your return will be accompanied with severe jet lag which you can now blame for your exhaustion instead of Daylight Saving Time.
If you follow all of these tips, you should be back on your feet in six months.
