How Can I Stay Healthy and Sane In College?

Here are some college survival tips:

  • Eat Like a Normal Person (Mostly): Avoid living off ramen noodles. Aim for balanced meals with fruits, veggies, and some not-so-healthy stuff you crave (in moderation!).
  • Sleep Is Your Friend: Don’t be a superhero. Pull an all-nighter occasionally, but aim for enough sleep to function (usually around 7-8 hours).
  • Get Moving: Exercise helps you stay energized and focused. Take a gym class, go for a jog, or join a club sport - anything that gets you moving.
  • Doctor Knows Best: Schedule regular checkups and stay up-to-date on vaccinations.
  • Safety First: If you’re gonna have sex, use protection!
  • Partying? Pace Yourself: Alcohol and drugs can be risky. If you do choose to use them, be smart about it.
  • Feeling Overwhelmed? Seek Help! Don’t bottle up stress or depression. Talk to a counselor or therapist - they’re there to help.
