Twenty-four goats brought to devour weeds in Manhattan’s Riverside Park got a rousing welcome, with an explosion of applause, selfies and b-a-a-a-a-d puns.
As the four-legged celebrities waited Tuesday morning to be released from a trailer near 120th Street and Riverside Drive, children on a class trip chanted “Ready, Set, Goat!”
Goats are around until end of July.
SLEEP WELL, BE WELL
How much sleep did you get last night? The average adult needs seven or more hours per night. The fast pace of life in NYC can make us feel like sleeping less means accomplishing more, but the amount of sleep we get each night affects our bodies and how we feel.
While there may be many challenges that get in the way of restful sleep, WorkWell NYC is here with some healthy habits that can help make a good night’s sleep possible:
Stress, depression, and anxiety can make it difficult to unwind at night. Get support if you’re feeling overwhelmed. Talk to a partner, family member, your doctor, or reach out to the NYC EAP or NYC Well for free, confidential help with stress, sleep, and mental health concerns.
Having trouble drifting into dreamland? Extra light in your room may be keeping you awake. Try powering down your electronics one hour before bedtime and keeping cell phones and computers out of your bedroom.
SET A SCHEDULE
Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on the weekends! Set a sleep schedule and try following it seven days a week.
Did you know that what you eat and drink could affect your sleep? Heavy meals, alcohol, or caffeine before bed may make it hard to fall asleep or disrupt your sleep throughout the night.
Adding some movement into your daily routine can help you sleep better. Upgrade a regular meeting to a “walking meeting”, go for a walk in the park, ride a bike, or play with your kids outside.
