Staying Healthy – Style

Here’s some tips on how to stay healthy. This is especially important for all of you freshmen who just went or are about to go off to college.

  1. Eat 4 or 5 meals a day. If your still doing the breakfast, lunch, and dinner thing, that’s good. However, try to eat less for these meals and add another 1 or 2 meals in a day. Eating more frequently helps keep off weight

  2.  Exercise for at least 20 minutes a day at least 5 days a week. If you don’t have a gym membership, go get one. Not only can you keep the weight off at the gym, you can meet other people. If just can’t afford a gym membership take a walk, run, or go for a bike ride. If you’re worried about the weather, buy a treadmill or exercise bike.

  3. Eat foods that you know are healthy for you, especially fruits and vegetables. If you don’t know how to cook take the time to, it’s really not that hard.  

  4. Get outside and get some sun. It can help with your complexion and skin. Don’t burn yourself though, that will give you skin cancer.

  5. Stop smoking and quit drinking. If you really want to be a social drinker, that’s fine, just don’t binge. Getting drunk should not be what college life, it’s not healthy and your going to gain weight.

  6. Do NOT have any unnecessary surgeries such as wisdom teeth removal.

  7. Stretch and don’t be overly competitive. If you’re going to exercise remember to stretch and don’t go out 110% unless you’re making money for it. ACL injuries are serious and occur in sports such as basketball, football, and soccer.
