Clocks turn back, what's an extra hour?
Manitobans will have an extra hour of sleep tonight as the clocks turn back at 2 am.
According to a recent poll done by Big Brothers Big Sisters in partnership with Standard Life, 62 per cent of Canadians said they were so busy they felt life was passing them by.
The study asked Canadians what they would do if they had an extra hour each week.
One in five said they would use the extra time to sleep.
CBC News asked Winnipeggers what they would do with the extra hour gained tonight and some agreed sleep would be their choice as well.
Others said they'd hang out with friends and family, while others said they would spend the extra hour at the bar having fun.
“The study shows how badly time-stressed Canadians need to make more time for their human needs,” says Bruce MacDonald, president and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada. “The fact that people have to forgo something as personally enriching as family time or volunteering shows we often pay too high a price for the hectic pace of our lives.
Winnipeggers matched up pretty closely with the rest of the people polled for the survey.
One in three Canadians would spend more time with family and friends
17 per cent would focus on their health by exercising and 13 per cent would finish projects around the house.
