Mixed feelings on adjusting to time change

Mixed feelings on adjusting to time change

The recent time change has left many students and staff feeling exhausted, however for some, they have been completely unaffected. Athletes may be feeling the affects of the time change more so than others as this week was the second week of spring sports kicking off and they lost an hour of sleep. To see the general consenus of the student body and staff at the school, some individuals were asked how they felt about the recent time change.

Sara Colwell, a senior expressed her opinion on the recent time change. “I was feeling very tired. I had to wake up very early that Sunday morning and I already had a late night, it doubled the affects of sleep deprivation.”

Many others agreed with Colwell’s response, noting how exhausted they felt because of the time change. Blake Cook, a sophomore, had a similar response to Colwell’s, noting how tired he was because of the loss of an hour of sleep.

Mr. Goodwill was also asked if he felt the affects of the time change. He responded with, “I did for a day, then kind of got over it.”

Mrs. Brady said, “I took a nap on Sunday.” She also added how important it is to listen to your body. “If you feel like your body is run down take a nap. Then you’re refreshed and ready to go,” she added.

Junior Brenden Lindstrom did not feel the affects of the time change at all, however, he did note he didn’t like “how it is dark when we wake up.”

Senior Keira Knight also expressed how difficult the time change was for her, stating, “I had to get up so early for work, it was harder to go to sleep and wake up at the right time.”

Losing an hour of sleep caused some students and staff to really feel the affects, whereas others felt it for a day or two but then were able to get back on schedule. Although the time change may have left some students exhausted, there is an Act 80 day today, so students are able to enjoy a three-day weekend to recharge. Staff, however, are not so fortunate and have to come to school for an in-service day.
