Daylight Saving Time: Sunday Scaries on Steroids

Today, March 12, 2023 was the beginning of Daylight Saving Time here in the US.

I wish I knew the story behind this clock. Purchased from someone who staged homes.
Daylight Saving Time - Old Clock

I have a love/hate relationship with Daylight Saving Time and I have a hunch I'm not the only one. It completely messes with your body! And if you have kids or pets too that adds to the complexity.

This year, for only the second time in my life, I forgot.

I woke up at 9:30am CT and I couldn't believe I had slept in so late.

Then, friends in my group text reminded me that it was Daylight Saving Time.

I felt like I lost an hour of my day. A day where I needed to get so many things done. I could have set an alarm, but I rarely do especially on weekends.

This led to my prompt for ChatGPT today.

I asked for 5 suggestions on how ChatGPT could help me make up for the hour I lost.

Here are 5 tips from ChatGPT. It's important to note that while some of the original suggestions were discontinued or no longer available, I vetted the list and updated it to ensure that the tips are current and relevant.

  1. Meal planning: ChatGPT can help you plan out your meals and suggest grocery items to purchase. Simply ask ChatGPT for meal planning suggestions or grocery lists, and it will provide you with customized recommendations based on your preferences and dietary restrictions. You can also check out recipe and a meal planning chatbot like Mealime.

  2. Errand assistance: ChatGPT can help you create a to-do list for the day and suggest the most efficient way to run errands. You can also check out personal assistant chatbots like Meekan (slack scheduling app) to help manage your schedule and tasks.

  3. Email management: ChatGPT can help you organize your inbox and prioritize your emails. Simply ask ChatGPT for email management tips or tools, and it will provide you with suggestions on how to efficiently manage your emails. You can also try email productivity tools like Boomerang or SaneBox.

  4. Personal shopping: ChatGPT can help you shop for clothes or gifts online. Simply ask ChatGPT for shopping suggestions, and it will provide you with recommendations for products or stores based on your preferences. You can also check out personal shopping chatbots like The Yes.

  5. Calendar management: ChatGPT can help you manage your schedule and suggest ways to optimize your time. Simply ask ChatGPT for calendar management tips or tools, and it will provide you with suggestions on how to manage your time more efficiently. You can also try scheduling and calendar management tools like:

    1. Calendly - a scheduling tool that allows you to easily schedule appointments and meetings without the back-and-forth emails.

    2. Tars - a chatbot builder that can be used to create custom chatbots for various tasks, including scheduling and calendar management. (Looks like more business oriented than personal use)

Disclaimer: I personally have not tried any of the suggested applications so the above should not be seen as an endorsement of the products suggested by ChatGPT. If you have tried any of these applications, I would love to hear about it. Please comment with what your experience was like.
