At the Center of Math, we hope you are all enjoying the last week of August! September is right around the corner, and although school may not be the first thing on your mind, now is a good time to start preparing for the academic year ahead– especially if you are starting a new phase in your life, like college! The #CenterofMath wants to help you succeed mathematically and in all of your academic pursuits. Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind as the final days of summer float by!
You may not see a clear correlation between your grades and your health, but making good decisions regarding your health can yield benefits in many different areas. Eating a balanced diet can make you feel more upbeat and energetic. Those cafeteria cookies are a good treat, but over indulging can lead to health issues and make you feel sluggish. Another important aspect of a healthy life is getting enough sleep. A lack of sleep can worsen your immune system and make you more prone to catching those colds that run rampant in college dorms. Try getting in a healthy routine now, and it will be much easier to keep once classes begin.
Review Material/Keep Learning
To train your muscles, you can run or exercise. Although your brain isn't a muscle, it still needs to be 'trained'. Make sure you stay in the academic mindset by reading, completing puzzles, or reviewing class material so that by the time school starts, you've already completed your warm up and are ready to go!
The Center of Math can help with this. Head to our blog to check out some best selling books and puzzle games.
