With lifestyle changes, moving out of home, making new friends, partying and studying it's important that students find ways to stay active and exercise during their college/university years.
Benefits of exercise include:
- Relieving stress
- Enhancing mood
- Improving memory
- Improving concentration
Even though students feel they have no spare time for exercise, they should consider taking at least 30 minutes 3 times a week to go to gym, participate in a Zumba class, try a swim session, do some weight lifting, or in any other physical activities they enjoy.
With regular exercise, you'll feel less stress, more energised, have improved memory and cognitive performance, plus you'll stay fit and toned.
