What Would You Do With an Extra Hour?

Yesterday, a conversation on talk radio reminded me daylight savings time would be ending early this morning at 2:00 AM. Why is it that turning back the clocks one hour in the fall makes me feel like a kid in a candy store? Could it be time is so precious that the end of daylight savings time, turning the clocks back one hour, is like receiving an unexpected gift, or like finding a twenty-dollar bill in the pocket of your jeans while doing laundry? A tweet from PLN friend MJ Linane confirmed I wasn't alone with my joy.
There is debate whether adjusting our clocks has any value at all. For me, the time change made it challenging to figure out what time to jump into #aussieEd chat, which begins at 8:30 PM AEST.


What about our perception of gaining an extra hour? Did you sleep a little longer? Did you get to the gym a little earlier? Did you spend additional time with loved ones?

What if by some stroke of magic we were granted one extra hour per day, how would you use this bonus time?
