During the first few weeks at university, it’s easy to get carried away with the stereotypical student antics and forget about healthy living. Once the novelty wears off, you might be thinking about how to keep fit. If you’re worried about keeping fit whilst at university then here are some helpful tips to stay in shape.
Cutting out takeaways is not only a healthy choice but it will also save you money. If you enjoy your snacks then consider replacing the junk food with healthier alternatives. Get your five a day of fresh fruit and vegetables. Consider having protein bars, shakes and healthy breakfast bars. Start your day the right way with some healthy breakfast cereal.
Get some running shoes and go for a jog around one of the local parks. You could download one of the popular running apps such as Runtastic to keep a check on your progress, including how many calories you burn. You could also take part in free events such as tennis or football. There are a number of apps that focus on the steps you do each day. Going for a walk will not only be good for fitness but it can also be beneficial mentally.
Join A Sports Team
Your university will have a whole host of different sports teams you can join. Consider going to the societies fair to get an idea of the different sporting activities you have available to you. You don’t have to be a professional to take part as they will accommodate to people of all abilities.
Get Plenty of Sleep
You should be getting around 8 hours of sleep each night. If you sleep for only a few hours each night then this could impact your health and study. Sleep is a vital part of a healthy lifestyle so make sure you don’t stay up too late!

I have been living in Brickworks about 7 months. Brickworks is a great place to live in. The location is really convenient (close to city center, good public transportation, near the supermarket and so on...). The buildings are pretty new (well maintained and very clean) it also offers study rooms, cinema room, gym, roof top party room and terrace. There are a lot of common areas for entertainment (PlayStation, Pool, table tennis...). Additionally, free coffee and tea services are amazing!
Brickworks team all of them are AWESOME. They are always up for helping... I highly recommend the Brickworks for people who need a place to call home... Thanks for everything.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
I had an excellent experience living in Brickworks during the last year in Dublin! All the staff members were always very friendly and did everything they could to make people feel welcome and we had a very good atmosphere among the residents. The flats themselves were comfortable and provided excellent living and working space, and the proximity to the city centre means you can experience the Dublin atmosphere. I have met many people and friends that I will take with me for life. If I were to live in Dublin, I would not hesitate to live in Brickworks again, it really was a great place to live!
