College students often live away from home, sometime in hostels, sometimes in PG accommodations. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important in overall success. Most of the time I seen bachelor’s living poorly, no hygiene, no hair do, dirty clothes and messy rooms. The way you live reflects your personality and the same time helps you in achieving your goals. Small things matter in life as much as big things. From the schedule, find 30 minutes a day for your hygiene. It’s not time lag but lethargy. Often you end up lazying around. Result a poor health, a poor persona, and ultimately poor performance in academics. So are to do things you can include in your daily living, stay active and stay blessed
1. Clean your study table daily.
It not takes more than 5 minutes or less. A diet free study table is a must, your study place should be inviting and not a breeding ground for mosquitoes and bacteria. Mind it you use same hand to touch your eyes, ears and sometime even to eat.
2. Change your dress daily
Nobody is asking you to wear a branded shirt only. Whatever you afford to wear it’s your choice but make sure clothes are well cleaned and ironed. Clothes had pores, well cleaned clothes allow for air passage, your skin need breathing too. Secondly, when you travel in public transport or go out, you attract loads of bacteria and pollutants. Repeating same cloth other day means inviting poor health. Same goes true with your shoes. Wear well polished shoes, it not only shines but also kill germs.
3. Wash hands before you eat
Famous chess master and Vishwanarhan Anand receives one single advice from his personal doctor and friend, clean your hands before you eat. If he can so you can. Pulling a packet of wafers from shelves and eating instantly is plainly bad. Wash your hands with soap before you eat.
4. Do not store water in empty plastic bottles
Invest in a pitcher or water container, buy cheap. Often students and bachelor’s store drinking water in empty bottles of coke and drink directly. Plastic degrades with time. Empty bottles are not storage tanks. Always drink from a glass.
5. Limit Junk food
Learn cooking. The cooked food you buy from is unhygienic. What you eat, what you become. You need food that can give you necessary vitamins and minerals and just something to fill your stomach. Cooked food from entries cost double or triple and it’s low in nutrition. Also its loaded with bad fat.
6. Limit your social media
Nobody is asking you to be a bookworm. But allow your mind to stay free, let the thoughts come and go. Watch nature, make real friends, go for a walk, volunteer for a cause. Limit social media time.
Time is money, time is gold, ....
Small habits when you follow looks pretty difficult but soon becomes natural way of living. To do something you need to be that person first. Staying healthy makes massive difference in your success.
