As we Spartans begin third term, this is one of the hardest terms that we go through. To help us have the energy and motivation we need to get through the rest of the year without being incredibly stressed or sad, so here are some tips to help you live your best life through one of the worst terms.

Physical activity doesn’t need to be complicated. It can be as simple as going for a walk just for 30 minutes. Walking helps prevent diabetes, heart disease and so much more! It also can help you improve your mood, so if you’re stressed from all of your homework, go on a walk! Not only will you come back in a better mood, you’ll also be ready to tackle that tough homework of yours.

You always hear people say that you should be drinking plenty of water. Drinking water helps keep your temperature normal so you won’t have to worry about being too cold in one class or too hot in the next. It also helps cushion joints and protect sensitive tissue. Not to mention water helps clear acne and who doesn’t want clear skin?

So now you’re probably wondering how much should I drink so I can achieve all of these benefits.

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine determined that an adequate daily fluid intake is about 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) for men and 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) for women but how much water you should be drinking really depends on your own body.

A great way to help remind you to drink water is to invest in a water bottle. Many water bottles are cheap and are also a great way to conserve the environment.

While the list could go on and on of how we can take better care of ourselves, here’s just a few more to help you on your way to living your best life.

  • Eat a big breakfast, average lunch, and a tiny dinner
  • Go to bed earlier
  • Begin yoga or meditation
  • Avoid processed foods
  • Begin stretching daily to help improve flexibility
  • Go Outside
  • Read a book
  • Stop thinking negative thoughts about yourself or others
  • Don’t dwell on the past
  • Do not put things off
  • Wear clothes that make you happy

Remember you are awesome! Go have the best third term anyone could ever have!
