I feel like I’m chronically fatigued, but I swear daylight savings time brings my exhaustion to a whole new level. And, as a result, my body tends to suffer physically— ie. weaker voice, slower to chew and swallow, unable to use my hand/arm to type or use my wheelchair as well as I’d like to.
I know we technically gained an hour, but with shorter days and my body’s internal clock not yet readjusted, I am struggling.
This makes total sense! Something about the sun going down so early is just exhausting. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the sadness caused by the lesser amount of light has a direct correlation to to how we physically feel.
