Keys to Health & Wellness - A Holistic Approach!
How to Take a Holistic Approach to Your Health As a College Student
Wash your face.
- Washing your face is like becoming a new person, it makes you feel fresh, it wakes you up in the morning, and it invigorates your skin to make it look healthy, clean, and glowing. When your face is clean, you feel clean and ready to take on the hectic day ahead.
- Use face washes that double as scrubs. Exfoliating beads or gritty textures help clean out your pores and purify your skin from any dirt and oil below the surface of your skin. It also clears out dead skin!
- Some of my favorites are Saint Ives Apricot Scrub and Kiehl's Pineapple Papaya Facial Scrub.
- Sometimes, you don’t always have time to get that extra hour of sleep or take the time you need to completely recover from the flu. So when you can’t do these things on your own, you need a little help.
- That’s where tea comes in! Drinking tea is excellent for your body. Herbal teas especially clear out a lot of toxins in the body and provide you with the boost needed to fight sickness, stress, and sluggishness.
- Yogi is a brand of tea that offers tea for every occasion. They have excellent teas for the cold season, but also stress-relieving teas, energizing teas, and even teas modified for the woman’s body.
- For when you need an extra boost of energy, drink Yogi’s Refreshing Mint Vital Energy tea. It’s a black tea blend that has peppermint, ginger and cinnamon, to wake you up.
Eat a balanced diet.
- Congrats, you’re in college. No more restrictions, no more rules. What an exciting time for soda and waffle fries to be in abundance.
- Unfortunately, these two things are nowhere on the food pyramid. It’s hard as a college student to get the nutrients you need. Red meat is scarce and all the vegetables look gross. But, you have to try to eat balanced and to eat at least three times a day.
- Nuts, fruit, cheese, and yogurt are all great snacks to eat on the go. Don’t eat foods too high in sugar or fat. It won’t provide lasting nourishment and too much can lead to weight gain.
- Try to incorporate something from every food group.
Don’t skip breakfast.Eating breakfast helps you get going in the morning and it will keep you from gorging at lunch and dinner. If you can snack during the day, bring some snacks with you.
Keep a calendar .
- This might sound routine, but it’s essential. As a college student, you’re constantly busy and there’s no way you could feasibly remember all of the things you’re responsible for. Writing things down helps you commit to the item, and scheduling a block of time to complete the activity furthers this commitment.
- Use highlighters, get a fun pen, grab some sticky notes. Do anything that makes keeping a calendar fun and once you start, you won’t be able to live without it.
- Getting sleep is essential as a college student. Yes, it’s a lot of fun to stay up late, but you’ll regret it the next morning when you can’t peel yourself out of bed for your 8am alarm. Try to go to bed at a reasonable time. It might take a bit to adjust your internal clock, but once you do, you can be on a healthy schedule that leaves you refreshed in the morning and lasts you through the day so you don’t have to take three hour naps as soon as class is out.
- To help you start relaxing earlier, try to stop using your electronics by nine or ten at night. The stimulus from a bright screen keeps you restless and hyper. Removing yourself from these stimulants can help you fall asleep faster.
- Setting goals is great. But not if they’re unattainable. Nothing good comes of trying to take 18 credits for four years straight or being apart of every club on campus. Figure out what you really feel is feasible while you’re in college. Guess what? You can’t have a full time job and be a full time student. It’s impossible, so don’t stress about goals like that. It’s not happening.
- As you think of your goals for your four years in high school, try to include having fun. You have time for fun even if you think you don’t think you do. And if you don’t have fun, if you don’t take a break, then you won’t succeed. Working yourself ragged all the time isn’t healthy. Try to break up the wear and tear of academic life up with some fun activities.
- Treat yourself to dinner out, see a movie, go to a party, take a weekend vacation to a neighboring town.
- Whatever having fun looks like to you, do it!
Surround yourself with good people.
- In college, you’re exposed to so many people. And those people are going to decide to do different things with their time at college. If you’re trying to graduate early and get the best grades possible, hanging out with people who want to Facebook at the library is probably not your best move. But it goes deeper than this.
- Surround yourself with people who will make you feel good. Negative people will drag you down as you pursue your goals and that’s not something you need. Don’t be afraid of ending friendships or relationships that are not in line with what you’re trying to accomplish as an individual.
Set personal boundaries.
- This is key. In college, where so many lines are unfortunately blurred and crossed, it’s important that you as an individual understands what you’re comfortable with.
- This doesn’t just refer to intimate relationships, this refers to boundaries of any kind. With professors, friends, colleagues, and roommates.
- If you’re not clear with yourself about what you want and need to thrive, then how will anyone else know what you need? They won’t. Setting boundaries and acknowledging what you’re comfortable with is invaluable to your college happiness.
