Good for your body and your mind
We know that exercise is great for improving fitness and maintaining a healthy weight but did you know it’s also a great stress reliever? People who exercise often report having less anxiety and exercise has also been shown to reduce mild depression. At what ever level you’re at exercise is important even when you feel there is no time to fit it in it will actually help you study or work more productively.

Are you getting enough sleep to feel rested?
You might be getting 7 hours, but do you feel rested?
Although sleep guides tell us that adults usually need between 7 and 9 hours sleep the exact amount YOU need depends on many things including your lifestyle and health. Paying attention to your own sleep needs by assessing how you feel on different amounts of sleep can help you determine exactly what you need. Are you alive and kicking on 7 hours sleep or does it take 9 hours to really get to moving?
