10 Heath & Wellness Tips for College Students

10. Have a daily routine.

If you are in the habit of studying, working out, and sleeping at certain hours, it will be easier to fit all the things you need to do in a day without feeling too stressed out.

9. Don’t procrastinate.

Give yourself plenty of time. It is easy to wait until the last minute to start a big project or start studying. You will be much less stressed and will likely do better if you give yourself more time to work on it.

8. Give yourself a break.

If you have been studying for hours, give your eyes and mind a chance to rest. You will come back feeling more refreshed and ready to focus.

7. Get a flu shot.

When you are constantly in an environment where you are surrounded by people, it is a good idea to take steps to protect yourself from illness.

6. Get away from all screens at least 30 minutes before bed.

The bright light is too much stimulation for your brain. Instead, send your brain signals that it is time to sleep.

5. Head to the gym.

Students are able to take advantage of the gym facilities at Mines for free. Get to the gym between classes to squeeze in a workout.

4. Take vitamins.

A daily multivitamin is an inexpensive nutrition insurance policy. Try to take one daily.

3. Don’t fight stress by eating.

Work out or take a break instead.

2. Drink Water.

Staying hydrated helps your brain focus. Plus, if you replace that can of Coke after class with a bottle of water, you will be saving yourself about 140 calories.

1. Eat breakfast.

Whether you have time to eat a full meal or just to grab a granola bar on the way out the door, make sure to eat within an hour of waking up. This signals to your body it is time to wake up, while also kick starting your metabolism.
