Every student will get stressed out at some point when completing their coursework for college. Many adult learners have to find a balance between taking classes and working full time. Here are some tips for college students that can help you maintain a stable, healthy lifestyle while classes are in session.
Moving and Exercising
You should be aware of your physical activity and inactivity. How many hours do you spend at a desk or on your couch? People who work at desks for long hours can benefit from taking the stairs instead of an elevator to keep their muscles active and incorporate more movement into their day.
Exercising helps increase the production of endorphins, which can improve your mood and reduce anxiety. Being more physically active can significantly improve your health and help regulate your sleep cycles. Whether you're swimming, walking, or playing your favorite sport, it's easier to commit to exercising when you're doing something you enjoy, so choose an activity you'll look forward to. Set aside specific times in your day or week that are designated for exercise.
