With the arrival of 2018, it's time to get healthy! Here are 5 ways to get started!
1. Drink lots of water
Drinking water is a given we all should be doing. Water is an important thing your body needs to function. By drinking enough water, you can have clear skin, you can lose weight, and stop headaches.
2. Make your own food or opt out for a smaller meal plan
Because I am a commuter, I bring lunch and I have a small meal plan of 20 meals for the semester. This has helped me with being healthier. Instead of snacking on junk food I can control my eating better.
3. Choose healthy options at the dining halls
Try to choose healthier options such as a salad, fruit, or grilled items.
Having a complete meal with all the food groups can benefit you in the long run.
4. Make healthy snacks to eat during class
Bringing snacks is another way you can lead a healthy life. I usually carry cut bell peppers, carrots, granola, and oranges, my favorite!
5. Hit the gym
You pay to use the gym, why not use it? You don't have to lift weights or run on the treadmill. You can also walk the track, use the stair climber, or a stationary bike. The options are endless. If going to the gym isn't your thing try going to Zumba or a dance fitness. You may find dancing is more fun than physically exercising.
