Fitness Counts for the Body and Brain

Posted: June 4, 2014 in college schedule, exams, exercise, fitness, study

Summer is here and whether you are taking summer classes or not, you may have found that your fitness level declined a little during the academic year. In my years as a student, and as an instructor, I have seen many students pack on some extra poundage during the semester. Students are often busy and less physically active. But, they also may tend to snack while studying and carry around a lot of stress which can lead to weight gain.  Image

Nevertheless, one of your biggest challenges might be squeezing physical activity into your packed days. I am the queen of multi-tasking, and I often combine my fitness routines with other things. I mentioned in a previous post that I like to secure my flash cards with a ring, or purchase the  and then carried in your purse for quick study opportunities. They can also be carried around while taking a brisk walk, or while using a stationery bike or treadmill. You can also combine some quick exercise with some of your daily routines. For example, when you are blow drying your hair or brushing your teeth, do squats! Pay attention to your form, making sure you are keeping your back straight, and bending your legs deeply enough to feel the burn. This is a great way to sneak a little extra exercise into your day without sacrificing any of your precious study time! Try it and share your experience in the comments!
