A few tips on how to keep your mind and body in shape this month.

Increase H2O

Water is so important on a daily basis, to begin with. Adding a few extra cups a day always makes me feel much more refreshed and keeps my skin very clear.

Vitamins

I personally do not like to take vitamins from the drug store, but you can do that or search what vitamins you can find in certain fruits and vegetables and increase where you think you need to!

Dress Properly

Wearing proper clothing outdoors and blow drying your hair before you go out is a huge step in the right direction to preventing you from getting a cold! Don't forget the hats and gloves your mom always nags you about.

Get Up

Get moving! Don't sit around, if you're a college student like me you already spend so much time sitting in class. Hit the gym or just get out for a walk, weather permitting

Eat More Fiber

Fiber found in apples, oats, and nuts is important in decreasing inflammation and boost immune system function. Also, this helps to reduce cholesterol.

WASH YOUR HANDS

I would think this is something people don't need to be reminded of, but please take the extra 30 seconds in the bathroom to wash your hands. It is basic hygiene and will keep you germ-free.

Drink Herbal Tea

Drinking herbal teas like chamomile and lemon can ease depression and anxiety by calming nerves and relaxing your body. Green tea is a great antioxidant.

You Time

Don't ever forget to make time for yourself. We tend to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of our days, but at the end of the day RELAX. Drink some tea or hot cocoa, watch a silly movie, unwind from the day.

Add a few of these into your month of February to keep healthy, both mentally and physically!
