Wait, we’re not ready yet — this weekend marks the end of Daylight Saving Time, which means setting all the clocks back an hour starting at 2 a.m. Sunday. (Yes, we still have to do that despite national lawmakers leaning toward ending the practice altogether by next March.)
Rather than raging against the dying of the light, we have ways to illuminate your fall and winter.
Get a glow up
TUO: The Circadian Smart Bulb | UW authored a 2020 study that found specific light colors are just as important as brightness in impacting circadian rhythms. It licensed the tech to a startup which now makes a bulb that aims to reset your body clock.
