• five ways to use your extra hour this weekend


As the clocks fall back this autumn, we gain an hour for one day. With the clocks changing comes the unpacking of gloves and scarves, logs on the fire, and endless cups of coffee. In order to ready yourself for the shorter days, we bring you five ways to make the most of the extra time this Sunday.

The most common of choices for the extra time which appears in the small hours is to sleep a little longer. Pressing snooze on your alarm without a smidge of guilt is a rarity for most people. This Sunday is the one day of the year you can certainly allow a lazy wake up. Take time to yawn, stretch, feel the cold side of the pillow.

Making time to read a book is a little luxury for many. Squeezing a few pages in during the commute to work or whilst half asleep is not the most enjoyable way to absorb the intricacies of a great story. This Sunday, take a whole peaceful hour to grab a cup of coffee, slip your mahabis on and immerse yourself in another world.

Wintery weekends are the perfect time to cosy up and chow down. For even the most novice of chefs, taking a little extra time to put together a delicious meal can be therapeutic. Being deliberate about every slice, sprinkle and stir makes food somehow more fulfilling. Feel a sense of satisfaction through to playing up your first culinary creation of winter.

For the energetic type who doesn’t want winter to slow them down, getting up and out for an extra hour is the obvious way to make the most of an even longer weekend. Enjoy the cool wintery air on a run or breathe deep with a spot of yoga to kickstart your Sunday.

Rather than taking your hour as an entire chunk to devour, try taking the whole day just a little slower. Taking an extra couple of minutes to pay attention to each part of your day is an equally worthy way to spend it. Take a step back, put your feet up, and relax.
