School can be tough - but staying healthy shouldn’t be! Check out our top 4 tips for promoting self-care during your upcoming school year: 

  1. Stay Relaxed 

    Incorporate self-care into your weekly routine. Need some ideas? Try things like yoga, meditation, and even committing to 7 hours of sleep. See more mind/body best practices here.

  2. Eat Right 

    Choose to consume more lean poultry, fish, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables as opposed to fattier, red meats, and processed starches. Want another trick? Eat breakfast. Eating breakfast kick starts your metabolism & gives you the energy you need to stay focused. 

  3. Keep Moving 

    Get more steps by taking the longer route on your walk to class. Want an easier place to start? Stand up. That’s right; merely standing up each hour can make an impact as sitting for prolonged periods has shown to have negative consequences on your health. 

  4. Sit Up Straight 
    Ditch the infamous slouch by being mindful of your posture while in class or studying. Your back and neck will thank you. Check out our infographic for tips on how you can set up your workspace to avoid back and neck pain. 

Preventative care is the best way to stay healthy when it’s back-to-school time. Making a few adjustments to your routine and being more mindful of your health will help set you up for success this year.
