It may seem impossible to get a solid eight hours of sleep, but your body needs it. The occasional all-nighter to finish an assignment is inevitable, but make sure not to make a habit of it.  

 

EAT WELL

Eating well can be difficult while you’re in school. It’s easy to resort to fast food, but try to pay attention to what you’re consuming. If you’re only eating greasy, fatty foods, you won’t feel your best.

 

HAVE FUN

It’s important to take your academics seriously, but it’s also crucial to have some fun. If your head begins spinning while cramming for an important exam, take a break. Distract yourself, if even for 10 minutes, and socialize with some friends.

 

REMEMBER YOUR END GOAL
