Happy 1st day of March! 📆 It also seems like the beginning of spring, with the sun ...
... coming out a little bit more, birds chirping, and plants starting to grow 🌱☀️
Yesterday, 29th of February was a leap day, and I saw many posts about it online.
It seems quite funny to me when you think about the fact that TIME is a 100% man-made construct ⏰
Time zones, daylight savings time, leap years .. all of these concepts are created by humanity to help us keep track of time - and adjust the time to our own benefit.
When actually, nature is all about cycles!
The changing seasons are a good example of that.
Our ancestors had only cycles to tell the time: the cycle of the sun rising and setting, the cycle of the 4 seasons every year, and the cycle of the moon roughly every 28 days.
Did you know that the word “month” actually originated from “moon” 🌝 and only later on the length of 1 month was adjusted to 30/31 days instead of 28!
