Easier said than done, a sustainable routine helps keep you healthy, happy and able to stay on top of your studies. A relaxing bedtime routine leading to enough, regular sleep is the bedrock on which a successful life is built. You may also find that sleep helps solve life’s most intractable problems.
Staying hydrated and eating well, with a variety of different fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein sources to provide your body with everything it needs and plenty of slow-release energy helps you keep going throughout the day, concentrate better and remember more.
Getting in a healthy routine early on makes everything easier. Cooking, making lunch for the next day, washing up, washing yourself and your clothes, studying, relaxing, playing, sleeping… your routine will later carry you through tough times and make life as a whole that much more manageable.
