Follow me on Instagram at sharpharmade! . Sunday November 6, 2016 is Zero Tasking Day. "The extra hour we get when daylight savings times change is often heralded as an opportunity for extra productivity, activity and ‘doing’. However, given that we’re all already ‘owed’ an hour every other time it changes, it seems a little unfair to expect us to work through it – as such, this day is designed to dedicate this hour to ‘me time’; encouraging rest, relaxation and a distinct lack of work. Daylight Savings Time was originally created to help the world keep in line with the cycles of an agrarian society. The times you worked and the times you took care of personal needs were all tied directly to the daylight hours. So it was decided that changing all the clocks at the same time on the same day would provide an additional hour of light for those who followed a more modern, clock-based schedule. For a while most of the world followed a schedule affected by Daylight Savings Time, and each year that number is dwindling. When daylight savings time changes, we are sometimes gifted with an imaginary ‘extra hour’, and zero-tasking day encourages us to take the opportunity to use that hour for personal growth, relaxation, and basically just taking care of ‘me’. Especially in today’s society where time is constantly marching on and we’re heavily connected to everything, finding a little time to disconnect is absolutely vital to keeping ourselves physically and emotionally fit. So, take an hour out of your day when Daylight Savings Time comes into effect, and settle in to relax and truly take care of yourself. Find a book you haven’t read, find a new craft you’ve been wanting to pick up, and take the time to do so. It can even be as simple as a call to friend or family members, or even just taking a walk through your local parks. Whatever it is your soul needs, Zero Tasking Day is your chance to take an hour and do it." ^sPm - #sharpharmade Fr 'Days of the Year'
