As the dreaded assessment period draws ever closer once again, you may be starting to look at your never-ending revision checklist. But first off, ask yourself a few questions…
Have you made it your New Year’s resolution to get fit? How’s that going so far, bearing in mind only 8% of resolutions are successful … Not a surprise really, especially for students who are usually up to their eyes in revision, exams and deadlines throughout January. But so what if your resolution didn’t go to plan – there’s no time like the present to restart your get fit goals!
Here is one drug addiction that is very much under the radar, but so common in the average student diet. Sugar. Very few of us really understand the damage that excessive consumption can do to our bodies, and the part they play in weight gain. Now we are at University we have the freedom to eat what we want, we could easily fall victim to one of the most highly addictive drugs.
So the new academic year is well under way and we are already being set those deadlines before the Christmas holidays approach. This does not mean you have to feel stressed or under any pressure though, being organised is the key to a happy and less stressful time at university and it will leave you feeling reassured of your deadline dates, give you time to sleep and go out and socialise with your friends as well as giving yourself to go home and enjoy time with your family.
With a whole load of students preparing to finish their final year over the next few months something which will be on their minds is what they are going to do afterwards. There are so many options available so understandably this can be a very stressful time and one that needs a lot of thinking time.
