Does Turning Back Your Clocks Make You Depressed?
A week from Sunday (November 4th) we turn the clocks back, so I am going to start complaining about it now. I HATE THE TIME CHANGE! And even though it makes us feel well-rested for about three days until our bodies adjust that doesn’t compensate for the MONTHS OF DARKNESS AND DESPAIR.
According to a new survey from, This is Jersey, HALF of people say they feel, quote, “depressed” turning back the clocks.
44% say they leave the house less during the months when it gets darker earlier.
27% think all the extra darkness puts them at more risk for getting MUGGED or getting into accidents.
And finally, 33% of people say we should get rid of changing the clocks completely.
