Episode 029 Surviving the Spring Time Change

Today on the show I talk about surviving the spring time change. Ever since I can remember, when the time changes I seem to just drag myself through the week. I feel lethargic, slow, and out of sync. It’s funny how much that one-hour shift can really just shake things up for me!

However, I have decided that this is okay and that the week of the spring-forward time change is a good time to hold back. Although this might seem like such a trivial subject on the surface, I think it is something worth talking about. From my own experience and from the experience of those around me, the spring time change can throw us off, and this can mean we won’t perform at our best.

If you are feeling the same at this time of year, I have some helpful tips and tricks for you to better survive the time change. I’ll be sharing these with you in this episode, so take a listen!
