Celebrate National Milk Day! Check out some of Team Nutrition’s resources below!
As a staple food available at practically any grocery store, milk is one of those foods we tend to take for granted. It's always there on the shelf, cold and fresh and ready to come home with you. But how much do you really know about milk? On National Milk Day, you can read up on milk's nutritional value or find out more about the new hormones detected in modern milks. You could learn about how cheese is made, or, if you're more into history, learn about how milk pasteurization literally changed the world!
The dairy food group is one of the most diverse, even though it is all derived from one basic food. It's pretty likely there's some kind of dairy that you just haven't tried. Give yogurt a go, see if you like cottage cheese, or try out gelato (the Italian version of ice cream). If you're already a dairy connoisseur, take it to the next level with a bite of stinky Limburger cheese or crumbly feta made from goat's milk. Love traveling? Dare yourself to take a sip of fermented mare's milk, Mongolia's favorite drink.
Not all areas are well-suited to raising dairy cows, but thanks to modern cold storage and sanitary milk transportation, there's probably a milk processing plant near you. Most dairy facilities offer tours for visitors to learn more about how milk is made into countless other foods, and National Milk Day is the perfect excuse to go see the process for yourself. Better yet, many dairy tours offer free samples of their wares, and some of them even have onsite stores for you to buy your favorite products directly from the dairy.
Tips for Staying Motivated
1. Prioritize Assignments
The key to success in school is staying focused on your coursework. Make a list to get an overall picture of your workload before you start to tackle any of it. Then, make a plan.
2. Set Attainable Goals in Smaller Chunks
If you're having trouble writing a 25-page paper for class because it seems like such a big task, stop focusing on that final page count. Break the paper down into its subsections, and focus on each one individually.
3. Create New Challenges
Changing your approach can help you stay interested in what you’re doing. Some high school assignments tend to feel formulaic after a while, and you may end up feeling like you’re just going through the motions. This can cause you to feel demotivated and drained. Change things up to challenge yourself.
4. Find a Social Support Network
You are surrounded by people who want to see you succeed, so don’t be afraid to ask for help! Mentors can be teachers, family friends, or even your school counselors. They are there to help you reach your goals and can help you create a study plan that works for you.
5. Acknowledge Your Accomplishments
Praising yourself for the things you’ve accomplished is a great way to spark motivation. Give yourself a quick reward when you complete an assignment or task. Perhaps you can turn your phone off and only turn it back on once you’ve completed your work. Or reward yourself by taking a walk or getting a snack—whatever works for you. Then move on to the next project.
