Local ways to prepare for the end of Daylight Saving Time

Soak up as much daylight as you can with outdoor fitness classes, stimulate your mind with a new game, and more.

Sunrise illuminates the sky above a red-colored bridge, a clocktower, and the Portland city skyline.

Every drop of sunlight is precious until the return of daylight saving time on Sunday, March 12, 2023.

It’s that time again. On Sunday, Nov. 6, people across the continent will set their clocks back an hour and “fall back” to standard time.

Wondering how to navigate shorter, darker days as painlessly as possible? Make the transition easier by maximizing these helpful resources:

Add some sunlight back into your day with Fulcrum Fitness’ exercise offerings, which include group outdoor classes at Wallace Park at 7:30 a.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Sunlight, wellness, and new friends? Win-win.

Disrupted sleep and routines can make us drowsier and more peckish, so make eating healthy easier on yourself. Try Stella’s Kitchen for pre-made meals that rotate each week and only need reheatingyou can even get them delivered to your door.

Resist the urge to lounge and binge-watch TV and engage in something creative instead. Peruse works of art at the Portland Art Museum, take in a theatrical production at the Newmark Theatre, stimulate your mind with some tabletop games at Guardian Games, or take a cooking class at Hipcooks.
