8 Tips to Maximize Your Summer

Good news! Summer’s quickly approaching and that means a break from school and nights of homework. But in the midst of all the summer fun and freedom, beware of the summer lull that can also set in! There’s truth to the saying “If you don’t use it, you lose it”; if you’re not actively learning and challenging yourself over the summer, you’ll find that everything you learned the year before seems but a distant memory when August rolls around.

But it’s up to you! There’s so much you can do to make sure you remain sharp and engaged throughout the summer months. So if you’re ready to get productive, check out this practical list of advice I’ve pulled from Twitter to help you:

1. Find a job


2. Serve your community


3. Start on your college apps early


4. Read a good book


5. Get to know your dream school


6. Maintain a healthy lifestyle


7. Challenge your mind


8. Start preparing for your SAT
