Change the time zone on your computers and mobile devices down one hour and stay healthy

Change the time zone on your computers and mobile devices to undo the automatic end of Daylight Savings Time which just occurred last night.

Go into the date and time settings on your device and look to see what your time zone is set to. Notice the number in the setting name. For example it might say -8 or -5. Select the next-lowest time zone (for example -7 or -4). So if you are in California -8 you can select Arizona -7. If you are in Eastern Time -5 you can select Atlantic Time -4.

Now your clock will be fixed. Just remember that every time set by other people will be an hour later than what they say. So if you have an appointment or meeting set for 2 p.m., it will actually be at 3 p.m. If you are supposed to start work at 9 a.m. you will actually have to start work at 10 a.m. If you get off work at 6 p.m. you will actually get off work at 7 p.m. If you are going to a concert scheduled for 8 p.m. it will actually be at 9 p.m.

Because of that you might want to ask your employer to allow you to adjust your schedule to start work one hour earlier in order to keep your clock correct.

If your employer is unwilling to accommodate you, consider switching jobs to a company which doesn’t force you to work until the evening hours and disrupt your natural, healthy rhythms.

Here’s a little mantra of affirmation that you can say:

I refuse to let societal stupidity fuck up my natural, healthy daily cyclic rhythms which I am adjusted to. I will keep my clock set to the same time that I always use because that is my basic right as a human being. I will adapt to the next several months by compensating for the hour difference in clock settings caused by mass stupidity. When people say the time is 3 p.m. I will know it is actually 4 p.m. and will not let their skewed times affect my life adversely.
