START being healthy when you're young — and busy!

With classes, jobs, extracurricular activities and all of the other things that come with preparing for the future, sometimes personal health — both physical and mental — can be put on the back burner.

The Scoop

Some students replace sleep with coffee or energy drinks to pull all-night study sessions, while others push aside physical exercise in favor of spending an extra hour with their heads buried in textbooks. But what does all of this mean? What are some of the long-term effects of such behavior? Most would agree physical vitality is just as important as mental vitality. In fact, some would even say the two go hand in hand.

How to Do It

Is it possible to be young, busy and healthy all at once? Well, believe it or not, it is. Regardless of whether you have little free time during the day, maintaining physical health — whether it be regularly exercising or eating healthy, energy-boosting snacks — actually is possible. You can do it all — and be happy and healthy, too.

Here, find out how to do just that.
