And the next expert will say otherwise ...

Same topic, but a question to those of us who dread dark mornings....

Can anyone recommend, by their experience, any of the dawn/alarm simulators. There seem many products on the market, but with widely differing reviews ....

Is this like full-spectrum sun lamps? I'd appreciate links as well.

I don't have any product names, but I have heard that the ones that mimic natural dawn, slowly bringing light up in your room are the best ones for SAD

Dawn Simulators - if not specifically for the treatment of SAD, at least as a help-me-to-wake up the mornings !

Interesting - thanks for that. Can you connect it to your sprinkler system for added realism for those rainy winter dawns?

What time would you feed them, if there were no daylight saving?

We still don't have daylight saving in Queensland.. Most of the other states do. They had some ridiculous reasons, such as the extra hour of sun would fade the curtains.., but I suppose with livestock and working, you have to go by the time set... But, if you were on a farm, couldn't you just go by the clock of the animals?

Honestly, I think it must have been a joke, but apparently it was one of the excuses NOT to get daylight saving.. (One extra hour of sunlight)

their natural rythym is dawn to dusk. in the winter when the nights are SO long and of course rather cold I wish I could feed them later so they had more food in their belly overnight. I pretty much feed at dusk most of the year except right around summer solstice when that is almost 10. I usually don't feed much past 8:30 then

What it takes to be an "expert" is to be willing to call yourself one.

Don't like DST? Move to Hawaii, or Queensland, or Arizona. We still retain a modicum of sanity. And in Hawaii, there is still time to get nine holes of golf in between "pau hanna" and "too dark to see your balls".

Cue my semi-annual "standard, daylight, split the difference, pick something else altogether, I really don't care what pseudo-time zone it is, just pick something and STICK WITH IT" rant.

I hate the transitions.
