Tip back. The time change is intended to better adapt work to the length of the day. On October 30, we will move the hands of the watch to make more efficient use of daylight, thus saving electricity. The time change, in addition to the economic aspect, can also have positive psychological effects if you plan it down to the minute.

Yoga, ballet and strength training – you’ll find elements of each of these disciplines in Pilates. Its essence is to stretch, tense and relax muscles to improve posture, balance and awareness of one’s body. Each of us knows the importance of sports, but sometimes the theory stops there – the time change is the perfect time to take advantage of the extra hour on the move. There are many videos of Pilates lessons on the Internet, and you can start with a beginner’s workout.
Watch the video
Autumn is the perfect time to catch up on movies. You haven’t been to the cinema in a long time, you were too tired to watch a Wes Anderson movie in the evening, you fell asleep halfway through “Phantom”? Now’s your chance to be a real movie buff. Don’t forget the popcorn! If you are not a fan of cinema, you can take advantage of Netflix. There you have a cross-section of all species. From romantic comedies to documentaries.
Reach for a dusty book
Since spring, it looks at you from the shelf by the sofa. It could be her 5 minutes… or rather an hour. By changing the time, you can reach for a book you didn’t have time for or there were too many distractions around that prevented you from reading it to the end. If you are just looking for an interesting item, take a peek at www.bukbuk.pl.
Make a list of interesting events
An interesting exhibition at an art gallery, a performance at the theater, a flower festival – make a list of events for the rest of the year that you would like to attend. The time change will allow you to plan the next months! For the most interesting buy tickets – preferably two, one you will be able to gift to a loved one.
Cook something new
Even if the kitchen is your kingdom, you don’t always have time to sit in it for more than the amount of time it takes to prepare a sandwich. Maybe a new recipe has been on your mind for a long time or you want to experiment with Thai cuisine? The time change works in your favor – even if you burn something! Open your favorite cookbook, find inspiration on Instagram or simply improvise. Whether it’s a healthy salad or an exquisite dish, the important thing is that you finally found the time to do it.
Get your closet in order
Spring cleaning is already a tradition, but you can also do a meticulous review of your closet in autumn. The time change will help you in this! Eventually say goodbye to clothes you haven’t put on in three seasons – you’re unlikely to put them on for another two. Clothes whose quality is questionable, you notice their flaws or you are simply bored with them should also leave your closet. If you don’t know where to start, the book “The Magic of Cleaning” by Marie Kondo will help you.
Make a banana smoothie
Rest assured, it will not take you as much as an hour to prepare a smoothie… Start your adventure with a blender with a banana smoothie, the preparation of which is trivial. You can choose from two options: milkshake or smoothie. Both versions are rich in potassium and are equally delicious. With cocktail in hand, make your book with recipes for healthy concoctions. You can find a lot of inspiration on Question of Taste.
Make a home spa
A scrub, a mask, a hot bath with essential oil – these will help you regenerate and relax. Turn off the phone, light up the world and wear your favorite bathrobe – doesn’t the vision of a home spa sound wonderful?
Sow a plant
Even if you live in a block of flats there is nothing to prevent you from creating a mini-garden. In autumn it is also possible! You can sow aromatic herbs in pots, but also marigold, nigella, forget-me-not or quinoa. Watch them grow and wait for spring. Just don’t miss the next time change!
