Daylight Saving Has Arrived At Your Bradenton Assisted Living Facility

Spring is here — and so is another time change! It feels like just yesterday we were “falling back.” But Daylight Saving Time (DST) officially returns on March 10, ushering in longer evenings and the promise of a sunny, fun-filled spring. If you’ve been looking for an opportunity to switch up your routine in a meaningful way, well, this is it!

Of course, this time change can take some acclimating as our bodies adjust to the new schedule. But don’t worry! To help you enjoy the transition at our Bradenton assisted living facility, we here at Westminster Point Pleasant have put together a brief guide that should help you embrace the change seamlessly — and with room for fun along the way.

Extend Your Outdoor Fun

Westminster Point Pleasant is home to no shortage of stunning outdoor spaces right in your very own backyard — from the pool, to waterfront dining, to the gorgeous courtyard! So sure, DST might be a little disorienting on those first few days, but you can lean into the outdoor fun to make up for it and recalibrate your daylight hours. It’s actually a great time to establish a new routine, such as a pre-dinner walk around the grounds or meeting up with friends to cap off your day.

Refresh Your Routine

Speaking of new routines, you can use this time to tweak your internal clock. You might do this by gradually adjusting your sleep schedule in small increments, so the change of an hour isn’t quite as jarring.

Learn Something New

Wondering how to fill your evenings with an extra hour? Another great option is to learn something new with that extra sunlight — perhaps through local classes or something you can learn right at home, like a new hobby! This isn’t just a fun way to celebrate your extra hour, but can help stimulate your mind and foster new connections with people who also do that activity.

Speaking of which, don’t underestimate the power of a virtual book club with friends or family members who don’t live nearby!

Home Safety Check

A practical task, but a worthwhile one! Now is a good time to assess the lighting situation inside your home. Check that all your lamps and lights are easily accessible, so that you can navigate them even during darker mornings.

Breathe New Life Into Your Living Space

DST falls at the same time as spring cleaning, so why not use that extra hour of daylight to illuminate your next household project? A clean, organized environment can have a positive impact on your mood and overall wellbeing, so it doesn’t hurt to sort through your closet or re-order your bookshelf on a quiet spring night.

Start Journaling

DST is also a good time to start a new healthy habit, like mindful journaling. If you’re looking for a soothing way to end your day — or a thoughtful way to start it — pick up a notebook and write about what you’re grateful for, or what you’re looking forward to! Whatever you write, you’ll benefit from the introspective practice well beyond DST.

These are but a few of the great ways to spend long, sunny days at your Westminster Point Pleasant home — but really, the sky’s the limit when you have access to so many community activities and attractions, from nature-filled walking paths to lively group fitness classes. Whatever you choose, we hope that today’s ideas help you “spring” into a new, fun-filled routine from the comfort of your very own backyard!
