BMHS PrideTime Reporter
As the train bound for South Norwalk reaches the train station, around thirty or more kids hop off the “watch your step” gap-having track as they make their way to the entrance/exit. It’s around 7:09 on a weekday morning, and the kids yawn as they merge into the cliques of their friends to await their bus. “It’s cold.” “I’m tired.” “God, is it only (insert weekday name here)?” Pridetime hears you, tired CGS children. We understand how tough it is to catch those 6am trains.
Here are five ways to survive the school day!
2. Sleep on the bus.
Stayed up all night or until 3 doing homework? It’s okay! The bus ride to school is like ten minutes, take a really tiny power nap!
3. Try not to sleep in first period...but if you can, do it.
Of course, if you have some kind of a study hall-take a nap. If you’re super super tired, have a friend cover for you as you stealthily snooze off in first period.
4. Eat a snack before lunch, and eat lunch.
If you’re friend has some fruit or a snack they’re willing to share with you in class, take it! You need the energy. Also yes, definitely eat a whole meal for lunch!
5. When you get home, nap.
When you’re home, do your homework for a little bit and then set an alarm for a power nap at an hour and thirty minutes. You’ll feel great.
It can be hard to get enough sleep when you wake up at 5, but remember to keep yourself energized throughout the day. You can do it, CGS kids!
