Look, I am not an expert on health in ANY way. I deprive myself of sleep, I never drink enough water, and I procrastinate like it’s going out of style. However, I’ve always felt that keeping mental and physical health is important to staying sane even in times of stress.
Some like to run, some like to do yoga, and some even go as far as to meditate in the morning. Whatever your preference is, taking a small portion of your day to clear your mind of the craziness that is life. Even when walking to class, try playing your favorite music (or not) and take in the fresh air. For me, running is my own personal form of therapy. Go outside, sit on the Charles, and stretch out your body to feel the world around you (cheesy I know).

And if you’re schedule is just too crazy, you can download apps like Headspace that have exercises and alerts for mindfulness.
In the words of the great Mick Jenkins, “Drink more water…or you might die”. Just kidding. But really, staying hydrated is actually one of the reasons your health could make or break. It’s hard to drink eight glasses of water consistently throughout the day, true, but there are in fact ways of doing so! Try drinking tea and fruit infused water, and ALWAYS have a reusable water bottle with you.
If you’re like me and you’re the absolute worst at staying hydrated, download apps like MyWater to send you hourly alerts to drink water and log in your daily intake. Seriously, not drinking enough water can make you sick. When you think you’re hungry, try drinking a full 8 oz and see how you feel. Your body usually mistakes thirst for hunger.
This sounds like super basic and typical advice. But if you find yourself getting 3 hours of sleep every night because you’re staying up to finish homework, you should probably adjust the schedule. Write down in the morning how many hours you plan on getting and stick to it!
Write down what work you need to get done that day and plan accordingly. Procrastination is natural and overly common, but it doesn’t need to be. Studies show that the more you write your daily goals down, the more likely you are to achieve them, so get to writin’!
Okay, I’m not trying to tell you to pig out every day because cake is your favorite, but keeping a balance in your diet is essential. I always try to eat a minimum of 5 servings of both fruit and vegetables to keep up the nutrients. But, depriving yourself of your favorite dessert or maybe some pizza every once in a while can strain someone. Everything in moderation is done best!
Sometimes, everything builds up at once and you just KNOW you’re on the verge of breaking down. But, fret not! Writing everything you’re stressed about in a journal or just typing out an angry letter on your notes can be the saving grace that keeps you calm. As well as writing out your daily goals, journals can be used to write about anything and everything that’s on your mind.
