    Hi all - daylight saving has arrived in New Zealand. The sun is shining and the days are "longer". A good idea, IN THEORY! But now that the clocks have been moved forward (ie what was 8.30am is now 9.30am), I'm not coping very well. I was doing ok for a while, but now that I've "lost" an hour, I think my circadian rhythms are out of whack and I feel just as tired as before! Waking up "later" and feeling bad - like the change in time is making me fall behind.

    Any advice on how to counter the effects of daylight saving?

    we're getting ready to turn ours ahead & lose daylight & that kills me. Days are too short - not enough light!
