GET YOUR HEALTH FOOD ON
Healthy eating at Uni can be a struggle, especially when you're on a budget; but it's super important to make sure that when you leave the comfort of mum's home cooking you continue to eat a balanced diet.
No single food can provide you with all the essential nutrients the body needs. Therefore, it is important that you eat a wide variety of foods which will provide you with adequate amounts of essential nutrients such as protein, vitamins and minerals and dietary fibre, which are all important for your physical health and well-being.
It’s said that you are what you eat, so it’s no surprise that if your diet is good, then your mental health will benefit. A balanced and nutritious diet helps us feel good inside and out and has benefits including:
Improved energy which means more stamina and better productivity
Better sleep and improved focus
General mood enhancement
A healthy, balanced diet is what we should all aim for, but remember that it’s also important to treat yourself to your favourite chocolate bar or whopping great bag of crisps every now and again. Whatever your go-to treat is, we all know this makes us feel great! Everything in moderation.
