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!
Find student accommodation
Where do you want to go?
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
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.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
