Staying Healthy is Important for Students’ Success

girl-sneezingWith the current Swine Flu scare and noticing how many of my fellow students have been sick recently, I realize the importance of keeping myself healthy. Especially considering IB tests begin this coming Monday and softball season is at its peak.

Keeping yourself healthy is very important, especially close to the end of the school year. Whether it’s IB testing or just finals, making sure you are in good health is key. If you are sick, you will be more likely to not be able to concentrate and do worse on your tests and exams than you thought you would.

There are a number of things that can cause problems. Obviously there are viruses and the common cold that are always being spread, but there are also other things that can effect your health that you may not necessarily catch from sharing a soda or shaking hands with someone.

Lack of sleep, high levels of stress and a poor diet can also make you more vulnerable to catching an illness or just make you feel bad in general. By making sure you get enough sleep and keeping your stress levels down (whether it’s by watching TV, listening to music, or exercising) this will hopefully keep you sickness free for your exams.

If you are sick, take the time off to get better. If you cant take the time off though, be sure to see a doctor and to take prescribed medications and drink plenty of fluids. Some things may take longer than others to get over. So while it is possible to obtain a virus or catch the common cold, be sure to be stay as healthy as possible!
