Time Change Might Put You in a Bad Mood

Time Change Might Put You in a Bad Mood

When we fall back an hour Sunday we might also descend into a grumpy mood. While we gain an extra hour of sleep, the time change messes with our internal clock, leading to poor sleep, decreased energy, and depression.

Dr. John Sharp, the author of The Emotional Calendar: Understanding Seasonal Influences and Milestones to Become Happier, More Fulfilled, and in Control of Your Life, says the key to seasonal happiness is embracing this time of year. He explains: "Instead of using the fact that it's dark out in the evening to hide under your covers wishing it was April, embrace the change and find autumnal things that make you happy, like getting cozy by the fireplace and eating soup."

You have two days to prepare. How will you embrace the darker, colder season?

I hate that it gets dark so early, but at least it's lighter in the mornings. It was getting pretty hard to get out of bed early for work in the past few weeks, especially because my husband goes to work an hour later than me and he gets to stay in bed! Maybe now that it's light in the mornings I'll be able to make it to the gym before work.

I love it! We already fell back an hour here and it made me so happy for the entire weekend - after all, it was an hour longer than usual! And I like when it's dark outside. Even if it means I'm still at school when the sun sets. I guess winter(and darkness, cold weather, rains)just suits better my personality. I finally feel in harmony with nature now :)

I'm in a bad mood just thinking about it. Time changes never bothered me until I became a mom.
