the change of The hour that we rose to meet them this Sunday is the best. The feeling of enjoying an extra hour of sleep lasts for a few days (few) and there is natural light when you get up to go to work. The experts that analyze thoroughly this issue, as the National Commission for the Rationalization of Schedules, propose to fix this we will apply up to march already for the whole year. Stay in Spain with GMT+1 time, they explained, is much closer to the hours that correspond to us by our geographical situation and makes the best use of throughout the year the hours of light.

The change of the Sunday is, probably, one of the last that we have to do. The European Union has come to the conclusion that just brings benefits to the economy, however, produces a negative impact on health. Disrupt circadian rhythms, as well checks after a flight overseas, for example, leads to problems of insomnia and even digestive disorders.

For the spaniards, finishing with the change of hours would be particularly beneficial. The reason is that they are added a few habits that may be harmful to the economy, the health and the balance between professional and personal life. Our uniqueness is inherited from the stage of development of the franco regime, consists of eating and dining more heavily (not always) and later the rest of the europeans. Lunch at three in the afternoon, though the desktop will extend until the dusk, and dinner start at ten remains relatively common. Spend more hours in the office, which doesn’t mean working more, it is also not strange in this country.

Such customs subject the body to constant changes in its pace of life and to a certain deficit of rest (the late prime-time television doesn’t help), as they do not remain the same from Monday to Friday, during the weekends; especially among school children. All of this translates, ultimately, in higher absenteeism from work and school, sleep problems and lower productivity, an endemic problem of our economy.

The Spanish society, and not only its economy, has made a great effort to converge with the rest of Europe. Since it is not so rare to be able to book a table in a restaurant at 20.30 hours, almost mission impossible just a decade. The hours have been shortened, because neither the workers nor the companies want to stop the activity for two hours to eat. The more young people are also not willing to warm the chair in the office and lost leisure time and enjoy the family.

it is Not easy or quick to modify social habits, but Spain is getting. The entire society is to benefit the most and, within it, women. The absence of family support has punished systematically in a business environment that valued more the amount of hours of work that the quality. It also begins to become part of the past.
