*It should be noted, in Arizona we do not observe DST. But this post is still helpful for anyone once the warmer months start to kick in*
It can be tough getting used to the time changes when Daylight Saving Time kicks in. We may only lose an hour, but it can take a little while for our bodies to adjust adequately. You may feel more tired than usual, especially in the mornings. Your snooze button might be getting a bit of an extra hammering, getting out of bed is a tough job for most of us at the very best of times! It’s a real boon to have extra hours of daylight, and it’s a sure sign that summer is on the way.
So if you find it hard to adjust, imagine how hard it is for your little ones. You’ll probably know that already, though! It’s not much fun for any of you, and when kids are tired, they are grumpy. Now, no one needs that! Bringing up children is a tough job, and it doesn’t help when they’re not firing on all cylinders. Tiredness can lead to tantrums and acting up. But try not to worry, it will pass, and there are steps you can take to make it much easier for everyone!
