Back-To-School Health Tips
School can be tough- but staying healthy shouldn’t be! Check out our top 4 tips for promoting self-care during your school year:
1. Stay Relaxed
Here’s how: Incorporate self-care into your weekly routine. Need some ideas? Check out our Mind-Body Guide for things you can try; like yoga, meditation, and even committing to 7 hours of sleep.
2. Eat Right
Here’s how: Choose to consume more lean poultry, fish, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables as opposed to fattier, red meats, and processed starches. Want another trick? Eat breakfast. Eating breakfast kick starts your metabolism & gives you the energy you need to stay focused.
3. Keep Moving
Here’s how: Get more steps by taking the longer route on your walk to class. Want an easier place to start? Stand up. That’s right; merely standing up each hour can make an impact as sitting for prolonged periods has shown to have negative consequences on your health.
4. Sit Up Straight
