Staying Healthy on a Student Budget

By February 23, 2017Budget, Student

As a student,it is super important to keep yourself fit and healthy during your studies. For many of you heading off to university, abroad or otherwise, this may be the first time you have lived out of home and the responsibilities for your general wellbeing rest solely on you. On top of your studies, it can sometimes be hard to find the right balance and motivation to live a healthy lifestyle, so here are a few tips to help you get started.

  1. Drink Water

This is pretty basic knowledge, but many a university student has needed reminding to drink lots of water every day. Health experts suggest drinking between 2- 3 litres of water a day depending on your body type. If you find this difficult, consider challenging yourself. Select checkpoints during the day to reach a certain target and challenge your friends as well to keep yourself motivated. If you have been drinking alcohol, it is especially important that you replenish your body fluids.

  1. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day

Again, this is another no- brainer, but is something that so many students neglect. Getting that 30 minutes of exercise does not have to be difficult, as it could include something as simple as walking to campus or riding your bike to the train station. Doing squats in front of the television, going on a hike with your friends or just going for a jog around the block are easy and completely free ways you can get a little bit of exercise every day.

  1. Join the Campus Gym or a Club Sport

Should you need a little more motivation to get you started, consider joining a gym or a club sport. Gyms can be quite expensive, but check to see if your university has one on campus, as it is more likely you can get a discounted membership. There are heaps of club sports and activities on and off campus, whether it be with a cricket team, the cheerleading squad, a martial arts class or a yoga group. While these may involve a little extra cost, they could go a long way to keeping you motivated. Plus, you’ll meet heaps of new people at the same time!

  1. Eat Properly

It’s amazing to see the number of students who head off to university and have limited or no cooking skills. As a result, this usually means a microwave dinner or take- out pizza for the fifth night in a row. Cheap? Mostly. A healthy option? No. It might be convenient to buy the bulk pack of noodles for a tiny price; however, your body will not thank you. Search online to find cheap and healthy recipes, get your parents to show you the basics before you leave home and swap your favourite dishes with friends to ensure there is always possibilities for meals. Be sure to include plenty of vegetables!

  1. Find a cooking buddy

If you are really struggling to eat balanced meals regularly, find a cooking buddy. Whether they are in the same boat as you or are skilled in the art of healthy cooking, buddying up with a friend can prove to be just the right incentive to get you creating some awesome dishes. Whether it’s every day or a few nights a week, being obligated to cook for someone else may be just the motivation you need to eat balanced, healthy meals.

  1. Sleep

Attempting to go to class, keep up with your assignments, have a job and stay up to date with your social life would be impossible without a decent sleeping pattern. Sure, it may mean you miss a few social gatherings, but at the risk of burning out and getting exhaustion, getting enough sleep is imperative if you are going to stay productive and motivated at university. Aim for at least 8 straight hours every night, but listen to your body. If you need a little extra, make sure you get it.

Please note that this is not professional advice, merely basic health tips. Seek medical advice if think you need it.
