Here we go, round two of the student summer detox, this week – lunches. If you tried out a few of the healthy breakfast recipes featured in our most recent blog - still think healthy eating is boring? Didn’t think so, and lunchtimes are about to get healthier and tastier so keep reading!
The typical fresher puts on an average of 15 pounds (or just over a stone!) in their first year at university, so that news may be welcoming to those of you struggling to get into your old pairs of jeans – you’re not on your own! Summer is as good a time as any to cleanse your body of all that junk food you may have been eating over the past year or so and start afresh with a healthy diet that will leave you feeling refreshed.
Thinking of going away this summer with your friends? Organising a holiday at any age can be difficult, as people have different preferences and tastes – but for students, the big issue is their budget. Some don’t even bother trying to find a holiday as they think it’s far too expensive or it’s too difficult to find somewhere everyone wants to go. However, after the stress of end of year exams and deadlines, we have just as much right as anyone else to a well deserved holiday!
For many of us University is done for the summer, and now there’s a whole four months until it starts again. What have you got planned? Catching up with old friends, enjoying the weather (if possible), relaxing, going on holiday and probably getting nagged by your parents on a daily basis - but they’ve got a point you know...
Whether you’ve been living in halls or shared housing the past eight months or so or finishing your first, second or even final year at university – all students are sure to experience similar pleasures but also perils of the typical ‘student lifestyle’. Now many of us are back in the safety of our parental homes and away from the buzz of uni life, we may come to realise how much our habits and behaviour have changed since we left. Either that or your parents point them out with slight concern…
If you’re like me, you tend to experience a tonne of stress and anxiety in the run up to a big exam. A certain small amount of stress is good; it keeps you on your toes and shows you care! However, in excess it can lead to lack of sleep, poor appetite and prolonged bad moods, which can all have negative impacts on your exam performance if not dealt with head on.
The worst bit about revising can be sitting at the same desk, at the same paper of notes for weeks on end. It’s no wonder really that we find any excuse to avoid it, my flatmate once even cleaned the fridge (!) just so she could put off doing any revision for that extra half an hour…
It’s that time of the year again, yep – exam time! Whilst many of you think you’ve got more important things to worry about than what you’re having for tea, that’s one big mistake right there. So rather than being part of the 1/3 of students who rely on their lucky underwear to get them through these next few tricky weeks, be part of the 2/3 of students who choose to eat foods that will boost their memory, brain power and concentration.
Time flies when you’re having fun, and before you know it you’ll be packing your stuff back up even though it only seems like yesterday when you moved in. Hopefully for most of you in first year at Uni, living in halls of residence has been a good experience, sure it’s never a smooth ride for anybody but hopefully you’ve had fun, met some great people and most importantly enjoyed yourself.
Maintaining a regular eating pattern at University can be difficult, with those late nights and late starts, you might feel slightly disjointed with your mealtimes which can in turn lead to unhealthy eating habits… such as snacking.
Most couples nowadays have to limit the amount they spend on each other for birthdays, Christmas and day to day activities. For student couples, this can be even more difficult. So when it comes to Valentine’s Day, as much as you might want to splash out and treat your loved one to an outlandish evening out (pretending not to worry about the mounting bill) your bank account may not agree. Valentine’s Day can often mean bars and restaurants bump up the prices and restaurants will no doubt be heaving.
Recently I have been making sure I stick to my goals by jumping on the green smoothie bandwagon. So I thought I would share a few tips with you on how to make the perfect green smoothie that will keep you energised and feeling more vibrant along with maintaining a healthier student lifestyle! What do […]
So, you’ve started University. You’ve done Freshers’ Week, met some new people and (hopefully) had a good time. But when the real stuff kicks in (i.e. work) you may find yourself coming back down to earth with a bump. You might realise that something is missing.
When you’re not doing coursework or revising for exams, you probably want to have a bit of fun and do something a bit different.
Can you hear that? The cough, splutter and sneeze of the person sitting next, behind and opposite you in your library, lecture or living room… Yep, that’s right! It’s the flu season, yippee…
