5 tips for looking after yourself at university
Share This Article:
Going away to university offers you a taste of independent living, not relying on your parents and looking after yourself. But between socialising with friends and ensuring you stay on top of your studies, it’s all too easy to pay a bit less attention to taking care of your health. So here are five handy tips to help make sure that you stay healthy all year long. Register with a local dentist and GP However healthy you may be, it’s vital that registering with a local GP and dentist is high on your ‘to do’ list in the first few weeks of term – even if you are already registered with one at home. That’s because if you do ever come down with something or break a tooth, having a doctor or dentist who maybe hundreds of miles away won’t do you much good! Eat healthily It may be a tired old cliché that students live on a diet of beans on toast and save up all their washing to take home in the holidays – but it also contains a grain of truth. So making sure that you have a balanced diet is important. There are lots of student and beginners’ cookery books available packed with low cost recipes for one person. So make sure you pack one when you go! Get enough sleep
