What is spring forward?
Some of us may think of it as moving our clocks ahead one hour or losing an hour of sleep. This can mean waking up in the dark for a while until we see more sunlight in the morning. However, this can also mean a fresh start to a new beginning in our lives.
The coming of spring can mean enjoying fresh air and sunshine with the ones you love, doing long awaited chores like washing the car and cleaning those dirty widows, and even spending more time outside in the garden, or taking walks along some of the beautiful nature trails.
When will spring forward occur?
In Canada, daylight savings time will occur at 3:00 am (eastern time) on March 8th and will end at 2:00 am on Sunday November 1st.
How can I prepare for spring forward?
You can think about getting extra sleep over the weekend to make up for lost time, doing something relaxing other than your regular work, and doing something nice for yourself that makes you feel appreciated.
Lord Jesus, thank you for this new season of spring. May we enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, and the many other good things that you have in store for us, as we marvel at the beauty of your creation. We are forever grateful. Amen.
