Get Moving

Many people are intimidated by gyms and so then they dont work out and sit around. Well you actually don't need a gym membership or tones of money. You can do simple things at home with household items or even some free weights. Or if you have a passion for running, dance, soccer. Whatever it may be get out there and do it, because it's definitly better than doing nothing. It is common sense but sometimes we get so caught up and busy we forget that this can boost our mood and give us more energy.

I completely agree with samanthax0. She has an excellent point. It is important for not only you to be working hard in class, but to also keep up a health lifestyle. Perhaps even ask you strive for you high marks, carry an extra book with you. Jog your way to class? Take the stairs instead of the elevator! Simple things in life will make an impact. Remember to keep up a healthy diet as well.

Hint: Whenever I am on the run and need to keep up with my studies I carry flip cards with me to read when I have a moment.

Well what if you've got a free gym membership from your school, what kind of workout routine would you recommend to someone who's a newbie to the gym?

Treadmill.
Those never fail, unless you set it to go too fast and you're really noob and can't keep up.
Or the elliptical, that one's pretty easy too.
Or try lifting some 5 lb weights. :)


It's really not hard to keep fit while still doing really well in school, it's just a matter of having the ability to manage your time.
You don't need to work out for 5 hours a day, unless you rock rock hard abs and arms the size of a watermelon.
Take out.. 30? minutes out of a day and go out for a job, maybe play some basketball with the neighbourhood kids in between your study time; your brain needs some fresh air after all those hours stuck inside studying.
Even walking to and from school is a decent amount of exercise if you do is regularly.

replace your computer/laptop chair with a balance ball. It strengthens and tones your core :)
