Most of us are so busy with school and work that we forget about the most important thing, our health. We spend hours and hours in class listening to some boring lectures
what is the point of having a college education if you are not healthy to enjoy the rewards of the hard work you spend in school from kindergarten to 12th Grade, then another 4-6 years of university,
As a former track and field athlete, I spent years in Track and Field; I even received a scholarship to The University of Alabama, where I spent two years on the development team but took a long break from Track and FIeld to focus on my essential education.
But I still wake up early at 5 A.M then go for 45 mins run by the riverside. Then I come back to the house, shower, make breakfast, and watch the Morning News. Then I start my day with a 10:00 A.M morning lecture, and the most important thing to me is health and security/ safety.
Here Is How You Can Stay Fit During School
1. Take the initiative
If there are no organized leagues in your community, or you find that school sports are either too severe or not severe enough for your liking, you can get the ball rolling (so to speak). Round up a group of friends for an impromptu soccer game in the park. Beyond the thrill of the competition, playing outside is undoubtedly a much healthier option than another round of Call of Duty.
2. Go to the Gym
Working out can benefit everyone, whether your focus is building muscle or burning off the calories from your last Smokehouse Deluxe burger. First, consider getting a membership at a local gym. A steady routine of push-ups and crunches is a convenient alternative if that isn’t an option. Next, keep your priorities straight – make a note of your school and work schedules and try to pencil in a few hours each week to work out.
You don’t need state-of-the-art equipment – just a long stretch of road and a pair of sneakers without holes. If you don’t love running, your iPod will make things easier. Set your alarm early and hit the trails as the sun is rising – you’ll take a breath of the crisp morning air and know that you don’t have a care in the world. Elite athlete or not, running is the first and simplest step to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
4. Lunch Productive
To escape the monotony of your dull lunch break, head to the gym a couple of times a week or join in on a pickup game. This is a fantastic way to keep your skills sharp, try something new, or merely divert your attention from the steaming batch of french fries in the cafeteria.
