It’s almost time to Fall Back

Twice a year I write about time change. And we are upon that time once again. For most of us in the U.S. we will Fall Back on Sunday at 2 a.m. Many of my readers are from Arizona, so this post doesn’t apply to you as much. (And note to my family, starting Sunday […]


And once again it’s time to Fall Back

So twice a year I write about time change. And we are upon that time once again. For most of us in the U.S. we will Fall Back on Sunday at 2 a.m. Many of my readers are from Arizona, so this post doesn’t apply to you as much. But I think the suggestions I […]

I seriously need a vacation. I am looking forward to a full week of yoga and meditation practice. I […]

Dealing with time change

Tomorrow very early (2 a.m.) we fall back. I hate falling back or springing forward. The time change completely wreaks havoc on my body–physically and mentally. You would think one hour wouldn’t be a big deal. But for some reason it is. (Being from Arizona I never dealt with time change until I first moved […]
