This is a guest post by our campus ambassador Caitlin Pfaff from Florida State University.
As an active college student, one of the biggest challenges I have faced is maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes it’s easy to overlook the power a quick gym session can do. Whenever I’m stressed, I make sure to find a way to fit in a quick gym session. It does such wonders for my mental and physical health! However, one of my biggest challenges is eating healthy sense I’m constantly on the go. One thing that I’ve started to do is make sure that I pack an apple with me every day. Don’t forget, an apple a day keeps the doctor away! Another great snack that I’ve found is granola bars! There are so many varieties, it’s impossible to get sick of them. One of my favorite kinds is the Special K brand, Chocolatey Pretzel flavor. To stay healthy even when I’m eating out, I make sure to check nutrition info online before I make my decisions at restaurants. Something I’ve started to notice lately is that what seems like the healthiest option on the menu usually isn’t. Don’t forget that there are many applications available for smart phones that can be used to help you live a healthy lifestyle! Good luck!
