Research has shown that a healthy body leads to a healthy mind. Maintaining a level of physical fitness and a balanced diet during your time in University will prove to be hugely beneficial to both your physical and mental health.  Studies show that managing to incorporate even a couple of hours of decent exercise into a week helps in increasing not only our self-esteem and overall mood but also improves our mental alertness and ability to learn.  A balanced diet, rich in essential nutrients, when paired with regular exercise, will ensure that you maintain a healthy, happy sense of physical and mental wellbeing, even around stressful exam times and deadlines.
