At last! School has resumed after several months of waiting. The moment is here and you just can’t wait to have your life back.
The buzzing life of school, the busy life of going to lectures, hanging out with friends – you’ve missed it all!
After a few weeks of enjoying the buzz of student life, sadly you begin to get tired of it all and yes, you need a break!
How can you stay healthy as a student after going through all these stresses?
For students, staying fit and healthy can be tough. You begin to worry about lectures, food to eat and how to balance your schedule with other things you want to do. All these take their toll on your health. Luckily, there are a few simple tips that can help you stay healthy. As you prepare for school, our five tips could just be all you need to stay healthy always.
- Eat well
It’s important that you maintain a good diet while in school in order to stay active. Mix your meals and take them in the right proportion – don’t eat too much.
Do not skip breakfast for any reason, except you want to be inactive throughout the day. Tight lecture schedules shouldn’t be an avenue for you to consume junk food and sugary drinks – cut them off as much as you can. Drink water well especially if you have long hours of lectures and you want to concentrate.
- Manage stress levels
“Too much of everything is bad”. You want to keep up with everything thrown at you in school, but then you’ve got to chill-out!
Make time to hang out with your friends,plan out schedules for your everyday activities and ensure you include time just to have some fun. Hanging out during the weekend could be a great way to start. Take up hobbies too, they can help you!
- Stay fit
Exercise keeps your body fit. When you have a busy schedule, it’s hard to squeeze in the time for exercises. The best way to go around this is by involving friends and seeking their advice. Join the local gym and exercise from time to time – it keeps you in shape mentally and physically. Weekends are a great way to start. You can plan your exercise activities around your weekends. Even if you can’t register with the local gym, engage in jogging some metres with a group or your friends. This will do your body so much good.
- Sleeping is good
Sleep is just as good as anything. It relaxes your body and keeps you functioning.
You should stop working all night and include taking a nap in your day schedules. It’s important that you sleep for at least four hours at night to ensure that you actually retain all that you’ve learnt. You don’t have to keep working all night because you want to cram as much as you can – you would just end up forgetting all you learnt.
- Be selfless
Join groups where you can interact and contribute your own quartile to the development of people around you.
Doing good, might just please your mind and set you free, so volunteer freely and help anyone you can help around you!
