Back by popular demand! Last year I wrote a piece for CBS MoneyWatch/BNET called "10 Ways to Use The Extra Hour This Week." When we fall back for Daylight Savings Time, we gain an extra hour. It's a certain tenet of the time crunch narrative that we'd do all sorts of wonderful things with ourselves if we only had extra time. We'd relax, read, spend time with loved ones, exercise, etc. Yet once a year, we are magically granted an extra hour. A week has 169 hours instead of 168. And what do we do with it? Usually nothing more profound than we're already doing. But you could have some fun with it. That post gives a few ideas.
I, personally, am heading off for a massage today -- my payoff for my three-day stint as an accidental pioneer woman earlier this week. That sure seems like a fun way to spend the extra hour! What are you doing with your 169-hour week?
