We know how the uncertainty during the COVID pandemic can be so unsettling. Especially for a student who’s only trying to get his degree and get on with his life. Don’t let the stress of the season leave drastic effects on your health. There are plenty of ways you can take care of yourself. After all, self-care is neither selfish nor indulgent: it is a necessity.

So, here are 6 tips on how you can improve your health while studying:

Eat healthy.

It’s so tempting to munch on junk food during late night study sessions. However, there are healthy snacks out there that can help you stay focused and sharp. What you eat fuels your body. Make sure to stock up on foods that give you energy, keep you safe from diseases and helps your body recover from stress.


Movement not only helps you stay fit but also keeps your mind active. You don’t need a gym membership to get plenty of exercise. There are apps and videos across the internet for all types of workout. You can enroll in online Pilates classes or download a yoga app. Better yet, find a workout buddy and build your fitness goals together. Even just running or walking for less than an hour is better than sitting around all day.

Rest well.

Don’t overdo your activities, though. Rest is still important, especially for a student. High-quality sleep can do wonders for your brain and body. A good night’s sleep sharpens your memory, helps you concentrate and relieves you from stress. It’s best to have regular waking and sleeping hours, for at least 7 to 9 hours each night. Stay away from devices at least 2 hours before bedtime to help your brain rest properly.


To truly improve your focus and add peace to your day, meditations is a great tool. Calm your mind even for just a few minutes a day and see how it changes your disposition. There are plenty of meditative techniques and practices to choose from. Find one that fits your personality and your schedule. There are also plenty of apps and videos to guide you on this journey.

Follow a flow.

Structure keeps the brain happy. Create a realistic, flexible flow for your day with plenty of time for both work and rest. Take your time in discovering what flow works best for you. Now is the time to experiment and optimize your day. Your basic routines and rituals will help ground you through the uncertainty. Combine your traditions with new habits and see your day expand with joy.

Focus on your mental health.

Being indoors for extended hours and sometimes in isolation can take a toll on our mental health. By engaging in mindful practices like journaling or by reaching out to friends, we can keep our minds sane and happy. Engaging with loved ones and connecting with other people boost mental health. So does limiting exposure to news and social media. Find ways to check on yourself each day.


Take it one day at a time, mate. The worst has happened and we can survive the remaining days. Let us all take care of ourselves as we go through this pandemic.
