I carry around a metal 64oz cup (with a straw) because it keeps my water cold forever and using a straw seems to make it easier for me to drink more.
Walk as much as possible.
Park at the end of the parking lot. Take the stairs not the elevator. Eat lunch while you walk. Just take more steps. This in one tip I am having a hard time with. Taking my own advice and heading out for a walk now!
Choose fruits and veggies over junk in the cafeteria or pack your own lunch.
I am not a huge fan of fruits and veggies. I only like a few, and honestly, I’d rather grab a Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter cup instead of a cup of pineapple, but you know, I need that pineapple more.
Don’t skip breakfast.
I am not a huge breakfast eater, but have an apple, banana, piece of toast. Something in your belly to help you focus.
Don’t stay up too late (especially if you have kids like I do!)
For the past few nights, I’ve been going to bed at about 10:30. I still think this is a little late, since I don’t feel rested in the morning, but as the semester progresses I will adjust it. I read my Kindle app right before I fall asleep. I barely make it a few pages before I’m out. Do what works for you!
