As a student, maintain an healthy choice of food you ingest. I know the student environment is renowned for junks food and other frivolities due to students’ inability to cook their meals.
Fine! Taking Pizza and other junks meal are allowed. But, you gotta minimize the intake of junks meal. Rather, take your time to cook whole grains, legumes and other healthy meals. Feeding well is tantamount to living well!
4. Abstain From Late Nights’ Activities
You gotta avoid any activity that will make you to stay awake till late nights. Like I discussed above, your mental health should be a top priority to you.
