As has been done since 1974 in all the countries of the European Union, this Sunday, October 25, the time change to winter time occurs. Many are in favor and many others are against. But how does it affect students?

The winter time and, therefore, the time change is already closer than ever. It is time to turn the clock back one hour, just the opposite of what is done with the arrival of spring (the reverse operation is carried out, to advance the clock). At 3 in the morning of this Sunday, October 25, it will actually be 2.

This change is made mainly due to the energy savings that it initially entails. However, the students are a group that suffers it directly since during the first days, laziness can be more noticeable in the midst of the adaptation that the mind and the organism require in the new schedule.

How can you fight it if you are a student and want to perform at your best?

  1. Get yourself a good flexo or a good lamp. If you have to study in the afternoon, you will have no choice but to turn on the light in the middle of the afternoon if you do not want to damage your eyesight. The flexo will be your best ally. In addition, creating a good space to study is something that psychologically affects, a lot. Here you have some recommendations to do that easily.
  2. In the morning, set the alarm clock a quarter of an hour longer so that you can start the day with a good breakfast and without unnecessary rush.
  3. Use an agenda with a marked schedule to be able to face your academic and personal commitments.
  4. Enjoy your friends responsibly, go for a run at the last minute, go to the gym in the morning to relax and get energy. In short, motivate yourself to study.
  5. Please eat well. And if you don’t have time to cook, ask Uber for the healthiest options possible. The weekend already if that…

The truth is that, in the midst of a global pandemic and with continuous mobility restrictions, this year the time change may not affect our day to day as much. And you, are you one of those who is for or against the time change?
