The end of the semester is here, summer is approaching and so is stress. Whether you are a junior,freshmen, sophomore, or senior stress is something we all feel as college student around this time of year. During this time , it is important that we deal with stress and frustration in a healthy way and to stay positive.
Here are some tips to help you deal with stress in a healthy/positive way:
Tip #1: Gym time – When you are feeling overwhelmed and burden going to the gym is a perfect way to deal with stress. The gym is healthy and it is proven that working out helps you sleep better and increases your chances of having a better mood the next day.
Tip #2: Water- Drinking alot of water is very important and necessary in not only a healthy lifestyle but it is especially important during this time of the semester. Drinking at least 2bottle of water will decrease your chances of headaches. It also helps your body run better throughout the day.
Tip #3: Breakfast – Eating healthy is hard but it has its benefits. Eating an healthy breakfast is even better. When you start your day with an healthy breakfast your body will run like a machine throughout the day. Even if you only eat breakfast and you skip lunch your body will still be running off of your breakfast. Normally your body takes 6 hours to digest one meal.
Healthy Breakfast Options:
Option #1- Cereal, 1 Fruit, Water, Orange juice
Option #2- Oatmeal, Water, Granola bar
Option #3- Yogurt, Juice, Cereal Bar
Tip #4: Sleep– Sleeping is sooooo important. Some may think that you need to go to bed at 10pm and wake up at 6am to feel fully rested but that’s not true. If you sleep for at least 3-4 hours a night then you will be fine. Sounds Crazy !! I know but if you eat healthy, exercise, drink water, and sleep 3-4 hours a night your body will do the rest. Its like oiling a machine, once you give your body what it needs then it will give you what you need.
I hope that these tips have been helpful to you during this semester!
