Four Important Tips I Give My Students

The most important tip for starting the new year is to KNOW THYSELF! You should know how you learn, if your teacher doesn't do a learning styles inventory, you can go on the computer and do it yourself. Then, very respectfully ask him or her to include your style of learning in the daily plans, especially if the area being taught is your weak area. Teachers can not reach you if they know nothing about you. Nobody knows you better than you! Then, you need to ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR WEAKNESSES. We all have weaknesses, when you know what they are you can put more effort into those areas. Additionally, we all have strengths, everyone has something to bring to the table. Lastly, but not least important you need to SLEEP AND EAT WELL AND EXERCISE at least 3 times a week for 60 min.. The average person needs at least 7 hours of sleep for the brain to function optimally during the day, for some reason children think just the opposite, less sleep is ok. It is not! You also need to eat well rounded meals, for breakfast make sure you get enough protein. You need to get most of your protein early in the day, about 15 grams per meal. I drink veggie and fruit shakes in the morning, because they get you going and crank up that brain power. Try to exercise throughout the day, the more time your rise from a seated position, the more oxygen you have for critical thinking. Remember -- Effort = Roses and Results!


Thank You Crystal for emphasizing the importance of sleep and nutrition.
You are welcome.;) A lot of people (children and adults) take sleep and nutrition for granted. If we don't get adequate sleep our bodies don't repair themselves or recover from daily stresses. Nutrition is directly linked to sleep, if you don't eat the right types of food, your body releases hormones at night that cause you to eat anything in sight during the day. This can be a vicious cycle, resulting in unwanted weight gain and sluggish metabolism. Have a great week!
