I believe if we could all make a week long holiday of it, our bodies would readjust. I doubt that is fiscally possible, so abolishing this body clock killing practice is the next best thing. Or actually, it should be the number one solution.

  2. Spring ahead feels like jumping off a cliff and landing on my head. Did you see John Oliver's "Why is this still a thing?" segment about Daylight Saving Time on "Last Week Tonight"? You'd love it.
