College life is a busy one and you can easily forget to eat right and even to wash your face. That’s why it is important to make a habit of staying healthy while you are in college. It’s all about scheduling a routine so that you don’t even have to think about it, you just do it.
To start your healthy routine you may want to write down all of the steps you’ll need to take to be healthy, but once you get used to it it will be like breathing. After a couple weeks of routine it will become second nature and you’ll be on the way to a happier and healthier college life, and you may even feel like you have more time.
Start Your Morning Clean
If you start each morning by eating a clean breakfast, washing your face and brushing your teeth, you will quickly be on your way to a far healthier life. Eating clean means it fresh foods, such as having a medley of fruit for your breakfast. You can include an organic egg with some fresh seasoning to get some protein, or have some nuts with your fruit.
If you never washed your face you’d have some trouble. Not only does washing your face, and the rest of your skin, help remove dirt and grime, it also helps hydrate your skin. Just like you need to drink water to replace what you lose each day, using it on your skin is hydrating as well.
You may miss meals as you run from class to class, but you need to be smart when you are grabbing snacks on the go. Don’t grab a potato chip and a candy bar. Instead, eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Throw together a healthy mix of nuts, dried fruit, and seeds for a snack that can go anywhere with you.
Drink water instead of soda, and definitely skip the energy drinks. Sipping cold water can help you stay awake and helps your insides too.
You don’t just want to take good care of your inside, but your outsides too. Invest in great products for your shower, your face, and your skin. Look into items that can help remove toxins, moisturize, and keep you looking fresh and young, even when you’re stressed.
End Your Day Clean
Wash your face again and brush your teeth before you go to bed. You rinse off all the dirt of the day, which can help keep you from pimples and other skin issues. You should be brushing your teeth for two minutes twice every day.
You also want to get good sleep each night. It not only helps you get through the next day rested and refreshed, but it also helps you to heal, inside and out. As a college student, you should embrace sleep since it also helps improve your memory!
