Health Tip: Start Healthy at College

Health Tip: Start Healthy at College

08/08/13

(HealthDay News) -- For many young men and women, college is the first chance to assume responsibility for their own health.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers this advice for incoming freshmen:

  • Practice healthy habits, including getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet and getting plenty of regular exercise.
  • Eat a variety of healthy foods, including proteins, fruits and veggies. Avoid salt, sugar and too much fat -- and late-night eating binges.
  • Let roommates and others close to you at school know if you have a chronic health condition. Mention any symptoms to watch for, and what to do in an emergency.
  • Don't engage in risky behavior -- including alcohol and drug use and sexual promiscuity -- just to fit in.
  • Seek any support resources available at your school.
