One more sign of fall - the loss of Daylight Saving Time
 

Fall Back 2015

This weekend we will be setting our clocks BACK one hour to Standard Time. 

As the clocks go back this autumn, the horological conservator at Windsor Castle will be busy changing more than 400 clocks from the Royal Collection Trust; each one will be changed by hand to ensure accurate timekeeping.  The current horologist, Fjodor, will spend 16 hours over the weekend with all 400 clocks at the Windsor Estate, including 250 in the castle itself, along with seven tower clock.

Fjodor explains, “It has been said clocks were a way to bring God into your house, because God made time, and man made a machine to capture time.”

One of his favorite clocks, the organ clock, houses in its base a brass drum and pipes of the organ, along with bellows that blow air through the flutes.  It plays melodies by Handel, four of which were composed just for the clock.

Now in modern times, we will awake on Sunday, November 1, 2020, to clocks that have automatically made the time correction to Standard Time, one hour earlier.

Here are a few tips from the National Sleep Foundation on adjusting from the switch out of Daylight Savings Time:

             •Maintain your regular bedtime Saturday night when clocks move back, and awaken at your regular time.

•Block out light and keep your sleeping area dark. Standard time means sunrise will occur about an hour earlier.

•Increase the light when you wake up. Light has an alerting affect that may help you wake up. It will also help adjust your biological clock to the "new" sleep schedule.

•If you are a "lark" and tend to be wide awake and energetic in the morning and sleepy early in the evening, start a few days ahead; a gradual delaying of bedtime and awakening time a few days before the time change may help you adjust to the change.

Live Gently and Be Blessed!
