Although autumn started (and thus summer officially ended) on 1st September, the clocks going back signifies the end of Daylight Saving Time. But what does this actually mean?
Well, you'd better get ready for the nights to continue drawing in, with sunset happening earlier that means longer and darker evenings as we head towards winter.
There's good news though for early risers as it means sunrise happens earlier too, so for those wanting to make the most of the daylight, getting up early will mean you'll benefit from more exposure to daylight than those who prefer to rise later.
Of course getting as much daylight at this time of year is important as it can help boost wellbeing and is the topic of our next blog, but first, back to daylight saving time and the clocks going back.
When do the clocks go back in 2020?
Here in the UK the clocks go back this year on Sunday 25th October at 2am.
Don't forget that you'll need to adjust some clocks and watches, though of course many digital clocks for example those on your phone and laptop will adjust themselves automatically.
An extra hour in bed!
The clock going back means that at 2am on Sunday, it suddenly jumps back to 1am. A nifty way to time travel eh? The best bit? It means you get an extra hour in bed. Hooray!
If you find you wake up at the usual time anyway on Sunday morning, why not treat yourself or a loved one to breakfast in bed, snuggle up with a book or simply close your eyes, pull the duvet back up and drift back into the land of nod for a while longer!
