Getting sick in general is horrible, especially when you are on your own in college. Many college students are used to having someone at home take care of them when they have even the slightest cold. It is a huge change when you have to take care of yourself when you are sick, especially when you don’t know the proper way to take care of yourself. Learning how to take care of yourself when you are sick is the best way to have a fighting chance against a cold.
If you have ever pulled an all-nighter, you know how it feels to be really tired and have a lot of work to do. All you want to do is nap or sleep, but you also want to get good grades. Now you can do both. According to researchers at the National Sleep Foundation, and many notable universities, taking naps is beneficial to not only your health, but also your grades.
Sometime you just have to laugh at how stupid the most educated people are. The college youth – with their free access to student health services- are the most resilient when it comes to finding ways to avoid doctors. It’s as if somewhere along the line, we have forgotten we are not invincible. This is not to say that we haven’t always loathed a trip to the doctor’s office, but in a spectacular show of resistance, we most often find the dumbest excuses to get out of going. The following are common excuses used by college kids in their attempts to give you—the roommate – a reason NOT to take them to the hospital:
The average cost of tuition at public four-year colleges is right around $20,000. A common misconception is that all that money goes toward the classes we take.

There may be things you’re overlooking that can help ease some of the stress that comes with going to college. That’s what these services are here for. After all, you should know what you’re paying for.
In today’s world there are apps for your cellphone that can do just about anything. There are even some apps to help you get in shape or to stay in shape. College is a stressful time and the freshman 15 is far from a myth, so it’s good to have assistance when trying to lose weight. With the help of these apps you can make reaching your fitness goal easy and fun.
Eating healthy in college is hard, especially with temptation always knocking at your door. All the eating at buffet-style cafeterias and the midnight snack runs start to really add up fast. I’m not suggesting you stop eating this way entirely; we are college students and that’s not very likely to happen. Just remember the small things, like not always eating fast food so late into the night.
