Daylight Saving Time: Spring forward with a new clock
Guess what begins on Sunday? Yup, on March 8, you’ll likely feel a bit sleepy when you wake up to your usual 7 a.m. alarm. Because when you look at that clock, your body is going to tell you that it’s 6 a.m.
Daylight Saving Time is great news for those who want a bit more light at the end of the day, but it’s also a fine time to consider adding a splash to your home by finding a unique clock.
Chrissy Madison, spokeswoman for Pier 1 Imports, notes that these days few people rely only on clocks to tell time. Most of us can glance at our computer, wrist, phone or iPad to do so.
“But that doesn’t mean the clock should be forgotten in one’s décor,” Madison says. “Whether you’re updating your mantel, adding some fun to an end table, or just want something fun for an indoor or outdoor wall, clocks are a great accessory to incorporate into your space.”
