How to Keep Your Energy Levels Up While Studying 💪
At uni, it can be pretty difficult to keep track of your nutrition especially when you don’t have a parent around to force you to eat certain foods. While we all love a late night takeaway, we also know that getting the right balance is important. If you want to feel refreshed and full of energy throughout the day, here are a few things you should bear in mind.
Vitamins A, C, D, E, K, B6, and B12 are the ones you should be trying to include in your diet. A deficiency in any of these could cause health problems, such as anaemia due to a lack of B12 or a weakened immune system due to a lack of vitamin E.
Calcium, iron, zinc, and potassium are all probably words you’re familiar with but having a deficiency in any of these can cause a range of health problems including tiredness and muscle pain. Making sure you’re getting the right amount of all of these will not only boost your immune system but also have long-lasting effects on your general health.
PROTEIN, FATS, COMPLEX CARBS, AND FIBRE
A student lifestyle can be pretty busy, so making smart choices with your macronutrient intake will keep you feeling on top of your game all day long. However, while things like carbs and fats are important this doesn’t mean overloading on sugary or greasy treats every single day as this will have negative long-term effects on your body.
