5 Tips for a Healthy College Lifestyle

5 Tips for a Healthy College Lifestyle

As college students arrive at school again this fall, it’s important to acknowledge the need for health and nutrition. That’s our mission at ReBuilt Meals, and with that in mind, let’s look at a few tips for better health in college.

5 Tips for a Healthy College Lifestyle

Get Enough Sleep

Before we get to nutrition, we should start with an important lifestyle habit that can make or break your success as a university student. Yes, sleep is a big factor, and it’s a shame that so many young folks neglect it. One reason we emphasize meal delivery is because it gives you more time to relax and sleep. That’s the result of less shopping and cooking. Insufficient sleep leads to an array of health problems, so take care of yourself by getting enough rest every night.

Don’t Consume Excessive Caffeine

This relates to the last point. You can’t skate through college on coffee and energy drinks and expect to have optimal health. Some research shows the benefit of switching to green tea for the benefit of neurological function. If you experience jitters or dependency, then that’s probably your body telling you to switch to decaf.

Exercise Often

Don’t let studying and work reduce you to a sedentary lifestyle. This is a big problem, especially for young adults learning how to manage time. You don’t have to be in the gym all day, but your body is meant to move and feel exertion. As the saying goes, “use it or lose it.”

Enjoy the Great Outdoors

One of the best exercise ideas is to go outside for fresh air. There have been plenty of research studies that link outdoor activity with better mood, decreased anxiety, and clearer thinking. These are common issues for new college students, so take heed of this helpful life hack.

Consider ReBuilt Meals for Better Nutrition

Even if you live in a college dorm, you don’t have to resign yourself to dubious cafeteria food all the time. ReBuilt Meals works great for college students, too. The beauty of our system is that you select exactly how many meals you want each week (between 5 and 30), and the food never gets boring because the menu adapts and changes all the time. We serve delicious meals like Louisiana Style Chicken & Rice, Beef with Red Wine, Margherita Flatbread, General Tso’s Beef & Broccoli, and much more. There’s something for every dietary program as well.

ReBuilt Meals prepares and delivers high-quality meals that are convenient for families, seniors, and even college students. Don’t let college be an excuse to allow your health to decline. Avoid those pesky “Freshman 15” with better food that’s easy to make. If you’d like to learn more about ReBuilt meals, please contact us any time!
