Rising and Falling with the Sun
For most of my adult life I have been an early riser. The sun is our internal clock so why would we not honour that even in these artificial days of television and other distractions. The province of Saskatchewan never alters the clock with daylight saving time—it's a unnecessary artefact that does little.
(Website is https://ptaff.ca/soleil/?lang=en_CA) a great website!!!
I see from this graph that our maximum daylight occurs June 21 with 15:35 of daylight starting at 5:29 and setting at 21:03. That gives us 15.5 hours of daylight and 8.5 hours of night, of rest. That should be appropriate to us.
We were always also taught that an hour of sleep before midnight is worth two hours afterward. Yes it is an old fable but there is probably many grains of truth in the saying.
With the availability for most of us to record as much TV as we want, we should be able to follow this principle. Why not give it a try?
(I do like a good nap too!)
