    I love this! These are such great tips! I was definitely a healthier than average student but I wasn’t the healthiest I could have been. I ate well and always drank a lot of water but I didn’t know what sleep was or what a gym looked like. You’re so right about the importance of balance though x


    • eviejayne says

      Yeah the gym was completely foreign to me too during my first year haha. But yeah exactly! A routine is so important as students, especially to get in enough hours of sleep ✨

    I am not a student anymore but I could use these tips even now! I think I was healthier as a student than now. Finding a balance is very hard sometimes. and so is exercising after a long day at work! It is just a matter of getting back into a routine!

    • eviejayne says

      Yeah whether you’re a student or not, finding balance and sticking to a routine can be so difficult when our lives are quite hectic. I couldn’t agree more! It’s just about finding what works best for you, thanks for reading ✨

    Even though I hardly eat takeaways, I’m terrible for not eating properly! I’m a recovering anorexic so my relationship with food isn’t exactly the best, which is something I’m hoping to work on. I’m back to uni for my masters next month, and even though I’m still not moving away from home – I really want to try to be more healthy and cook better food lol great post lovely 🙂 xxx

      Ah once you nail a few basic recipes which you love, cooking will become second nature. Hope you find some meals which you love (and at least you won’t be tempted by the student takeaway deals haha). Thank you! ✨

    Some great tips here! I really struggled with making sure I was eating properly especially during exams as I didn’t want to waste time but it didn’t help me, this is a really useful post for uni students!

    • eviejayne says

      Ah I was exactly the same during my first year exams – a poor diet and little routine does a lot more harm than good when it comes to studying. Thanks for reading! ✨

    So many great ideas here Evie! Drinking water is such a good way to feel focused and alert, I always seem to forget though so need to get better at that one. I love your simple meal ideas, they look so easy but delicious too. Getting out for a walk is my favourite way to de-stress. Thank you for sharing your suggestions <3 xx

    It is so important to stay healthy in university. The moment you start missing a lot of classes, things can go downhill because there’s a lot to catch up. YES on drinking more water! It helps you in so many ways. Love the tips about making good food. People need to know that it’s OK to say no! Finding a balance is important – especially when it helps with your mental health. Thanks for sharing!

      Ah I knoww, playing catch-up is never fun, especially when you’re doing it on little sleep and a poor diet! I couldn’t agree more! A good routine is so important, thanks for reading ✨

    Love this post, it’s such an important thing to think about that gets lost in the midst of everything else keeping us busy at uni! I am not looking forward to another inevitable bout of freshers flu, it’s no joke. Hopefully gonna fight it off with water and a few chilled nights, I can hope at least.

    • eviejayne says

      Ah exactly! It’s just about finding the right balance while still being able to enjoy yourself. Oh good luck, I hope fresher’s flu doesn’t hit you too hard haha, thanks for reading! ✨

    I learnt all these the hard way many years ago – but a lot are still applicable to life today! I never said no and that was before Instagram etc, so it’s great to remind everyone FOMO doesn’t last xx

    • eviejayne says

      Exactly! Finding a good routine in general is so important, especially when we lead busier lives. Thanks for reading! ✨

  9. Annie says

    Great post! I found this so beneficial for me to read! Having balance is such a good tip. It’s so easy to let Uni consume all that you do however it’s important to make time for other things as well. I’ve definitely been trying to make more of an effort with drinking water this year and I’ve definitely noticed a difference!

    • eviejayne says

      I couldn’t agree more! A blaance between looking after yourself and still having a good time is so important, but it’s easy to let Uni culture take over. That’s so good to hear! The benefits of water are endless, thanks for reading ✨

    These tips are honestly even applicable to regular life or just being an adult overall. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in going out and forgetting to give yourself the time to relax, but it’s definitely important and totally normal!

    great post, and one that is so important! i defenitely ate out way to much during college and it catches up with you so quickly. My roommates and I found that making a grocery list and a meal plan helps you not waste money and helps you make sure you have enough for actual meals.

    These are great tips for all the new uni students! I’m not a student but I still struggle to find time to cook sometimes if I’ve been on a late shift and then been to the gym which is why the slow cooker is becoming my best friend!

      Oh I need to invest in a slow cooker! Such a great way to make meals when you have a busy lifestyle. Thanks for reading! ✨

    Finding simple, healthy recipes that I can easily recreate has been a life saver for me! I can make a smoothie with only 3 ingredients each morning, or change it up to egg on toast with a couple jalapenos on top. That, alongside drinking tons of water, get me through each day and keep me healthier in the long run!

    • eviejayne says

      Ah how exciting, I hope you settle down in your new place quickly! Yeah easy meals are definitely the way to go, especially when we have busy lifestyles ✨
