It’s daylight saving time and you know what that means! Sure, it gets dark earlier now. Yes, it is signaling the cold winter months ahead. However, thanks to that “extra” hour of sleep, we have never felt more well-rested. When the world is well-rested, the internet is well-rested, and when the internet is well-rested, we get spectacular memes.
Twitter made the most of that extra hour by filling our timelines with hilarious memes to underscore — if it wasn’t abundantly clear already — that an extra hour of sleep is the best thing to wake up to. From a long-term perspective, what is the point of setting our clocks back an hour in the winter anymore? Studies have shown that changing up the time can mess with our circadian rhythm and actually disrupt our sleep schedule. From a short-term, much more meme-able perspective, let’s get that sleep!
I was proud of myself for naturally waking up an hour early today and then I found out it was daylight savings and I actually just woke up the same time I always do and now it feels ruined.— Busy Philipps (@BusyPhilipps) November 3, 2019
