Problem
Students nowadays are so stressed with everything. we are easily sad that eventually leads to depression; thus needing more break to catch up with ourselves and even with friends. 30 mins is only enough for a meal or a quick snack. Some students also have work to do; hence, skipping meals in order to complete and satisfy these tasks. A lot of people would beg to differ that school work and sleep must be done at home, but you have to take into consideration that we don’t all live in the same block 5 mins away from school. Some may live 3 hours prior to arriving in school or even more eventually leading to exhaustion. Imagine getting dismissed at 4:30 in the afternoon and going through traffic which adds at least 2 hours to your travel. Heading towards home you stumble upon an accident, so you have to wait for another ride to come estimate of 30 mins, and finally arriving to your house after an hour of travel. Looking at the time you’d see that 10:30 PM. You wouldn’t have time to do your homework, and even if you did you would sacrifice rest and energy for tomorrow.  You would also have to eat supper and wash your own dish which adds up to 30 mins ending with an 11:00 o’clock in the evening time. The story does not end there because you would have to wake up at 4:00 in the morning. But wait, last night you forgot to set your alarm. You woke up about 30 minutes before class starts, so you ready yourself forgetting to eat, and do your morning rituals. As you arrive, the teacher would ask why you are late and humiliate you in class as a bunch of people start bullying you. You tried listening in class and no matter how hard you tried your eyes fell to deep sleep. You wake up and see that it’s break time, but you still do not have the time to feast as you are weak mentally and physically. You get bullied again until you get sick and tired of school and make excuses not to go. Your attendance goes bad as you get dropped and eventually you turn into a disappointment. Nothing in life seems to work and nothing here feels right anymore. You then wonder why did that 30 mins of break destroyed my life. Until you realize things could have been better if 30 mins of time could have been added and help you catch up with sleep

 
Solution
having a 1 hour break may introduce productivity on the students. We are then able to converse, share ideas, and catch on some school works or even sleep. We will start listening actively to the instructors and even recite from time to time. We might even encourage one another to do better and the toxicity may eventually flush out. Coming to school early won’t be a problem anymore now that sleeping early would make a difference.
