Time Change Hard On The Body

I feel for this country that constantly does the time change twice a year. Not only is it a major change in life, but now they have changed the date when we actually do this. Everyone wants to act like it is an innocent event of our life, but I submit, it is anything but innocent.

When people get into a daily rhythm of life, their body syncs up to that pattern. The brain produces chemicals to be awake, sleep and function based upon our patterns. Our routines give structure to when we eat and when we interact in this world. Yet, for some reason, we in this country think that putting our body in upheaval is a good thing.  Changing our body clocks is a major stress upon our body and our life.

I'm sure some are saying, it really isn't that big of a deal. Others most likely would think, you just need to suck it up and go on. However, the body is the truth detector and if you look around at the evidence in people after the time change, you will see just what I am talking about.

This year, I even noticed it in my daily traffic to the websites I manage. On the Sunday of the time change, the traffic was significantly lower. It has begun to pick up again after a few days, but you can almost see that something major happened.

While I know the grandstanding politicians create their reasons for making a time change, it really is disruptive to our world and our lives. If you were a robot, it most likely would be nothing more than a time adjustment. Biological organisms on the other hand don't adjust quite so easily.

It would be nice if we as humans did not try to be the supreme ruler of nature, thinking we know what is best for the world and universe. It would be nice if we would allow nature to be our guide, rather than manipulating it.

I'm sure there is evidence out there and research studies being done of what is exactly at stake in humans from a biological perspective. As with most things like this, it tends to fall on deaf ears. May we start to wake up at some point and begin to understand just how much we depend upon our body and how often we fail our body.
