LRC TIP OF THE WEEK: MAINTAINING: Considerations for Staying on Top of Your Game!

Submit news

The details… A mother’s advice to all college students who are passionately engaged in becoming….on their own:

• Eat well. Choose a wide variety of healthy, nutritious foods. Eat regularly to keep up your energy. Limit all-you-can-eat cafeterias and late-night raids to get pizza. Do, however, consume enough food to feel and perform your best.

• Get enough sleep. Sleep is vital to your mental well-being. Go to bed at a reasonable hour. Wake up at roughly the same time every day. Keep your room dark and quiet at night.
