Living a healthy lifestyle is very important.  You don’t have to be extremely healthy to maintain a “healthy lifestyle” but it can be a little harder to maintain this lifestyle in college. I would consider myself to live a healthy lifestyle and I still eat Wendy’s, go out for drinks, and can be lazy at times. It’s all about moderation.  Here are some tips that help me maintain a healthy lifestyle while enjoying life.

1. Don’t drink as much

This tip is #1 on my list because drinking is very prevalent in college. Stop drinking every single weekend. If you can’t stop yourself from this than at least only drink one day out of the week. Alcohol has a lot of calories in it so it is important that you not drink as much.

2. Cook Dinner

We all have a dining hall that is filled with pizza, fries, and tons of desserts. A meal plan is expensive so using your swipes is important but, if you can cook at home do it! Stop buying those microwavable dinners and learn how to cook chicken, fish, and rice. Your diet is very important and affects your mood! You are what you eat….

3.  Get good sleep

If you’re in college you are probably laughing at this one. Getting a good amount of sleep is almost impossible in college. Roommates are loud,  papers are due, and sometimes we stay out way too late. It’s important that you find a happy medium! Try to block out the noise by wearing some headphones or even try an eye mask.

4. Exercise

Getting some sort of exercise every day will help you keep some weight off! Going to the gym might not fit into your schedule and that’s okay. If you can’t make it to the gym try walking to your classes instead of driving, stretch when you wake up in the morning or try to do some at home exercises.

If you make a conscious effort to make a change in your daily habits you will start to see changes in your mood and with your body. Living a healthy lifestyle in college is possible! It just takes a little bit of effort.
