Adjust your clocks over the weekend of 6-7 April! Daylight savings are here

As autumn sweeps across the landscapes of New Zealand, there's a subtle yet significant change in the air. Can you feel the chill? While the rest of the world might groan at the idea of losing an hour of precious sleep, Kiwis have their own unique take on this temporal shuffle. So, grab your cuppa and let's delve into adapting to daylight savings in Aotearoa. 

Picture this: you're enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon, basking in the golden hues of the setting sun when suddenly... time decides to play tricks on you! Welcome to the time warp, where clocks are turned back, and daylight seemingly vanishes earlier.  


Welcoming an early twilight: 

With daylight savings comes the inevitable shift in daylight patterns. As we bid farewell to those long summer evenings, we embrace the cozy allure of early twilight. There's something enchanting about watching the sun dip below the horizon a tad earlier, painting the sky with hues of orange and pink. 


Set the clocks and your routine: 

Going back an hour and the change in weather often leads to us coming up with the wildest excuses to miss a commitment. But hey, let's not be a wet blanket! Whether it's school, work, or those eagerly anticipated gatherings, it's time to dust off those planning skills and ensure we're punctual, despite the temporal shuffle. There's a certain thrill in navigating the time shift and arriving right on schedule.  


Seize the light: 

While some may lament the loss of that extra hour of sleep, we can also see daylight savings as an opportunity to seize the day – quite literally! With the sun setting earlier, there's a renewed sense of urgency to make the most of those precious daylight hours. Whether it's embarking on a stroll along the beach or gathering with friends for a barbecue under the fading light, there's no shortage of ways to embrace the shorter days with open arms. 


Stir your pot of thoughts: 

As daylight savings nudges us towards the quieter, more introspective moments of autumn, it's the perfect time for reflection. With shorter days and longer nights, there's ample opportunity to pause, ponder, and perhaps even recalibrate our priorities. Don’t let the rain, rain on your parade. 


So, there you have it – here's your reminder to get prepared for the daylight savings. From the time warp

to embracing early twilight, there's a sense of adventure in this seasonal shift. So, as we turn back the clocks and embrace the changing rhythms of autumn, let's savor every moment, knowing that with each passing day, we're growing our potential in one way or the other.
