Tonight the NZ clocks go forward an hour to summer time. This is a symbolic moment much wanted by those who are starting to experience SAD. Apart from the physiological and psychological effects, there are some practical issues that readers should take into account.
FOR UK readers – From 1 October NZ will be 12 hours ahead of GMT. That means when we wake up at 7am tomorrow (1 October) it will be 7pm on Saturday night (30 September) in the UK.
FOR readers in Spain – From 1 October NZ will be 11 hours ahead of Spanish time. That means when we wake up at 7am tomorrow (1 October) it will be 8pm on Saturday night (30 September) in the Spain.
In a few weeks the UK will change it’s clocks and make NZ 13 hours ahead – this makes it more complicated again, but we’ll take it one step at a time!
