Mississippi State University has been awarded a grant to launch “MSU on the Move” a campus health initiative for students and local residents. In response, Massage School San Diego has released a tip sheet to help students stay healthy while at college.

Following the announcement that Mississippi State University has launched its “MSU on the Move” health initiative, Massage School San Diego, a proponent of vegan foods and holistic schools in San Diego, has released a tip sheet to help college students stay healthy while away at school.

Thanks to a $562,000 grant from The Blue Cross Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation, Mississippi State University was able to launch its “MSU on the Move” health initiative this week. The initiative, which focuses on long-term, lifestyle changes, is designed to improve the health and well-being of its students and residents of the local community of Starkville. There will be regular programs hosted on campus to encourage healthy living, and students will be able to attend question and answer sessions with dieticians and nutrition counselors.

In conjunction with MSU’s health initiative, Massage School San Diego has released a list of tips to help college students stay healthy during their busy years at school:

  •     Get plenty of sleep, and don’t make a habit of all-nighters. A lack of sleep can lead to headaches, weight gain and more.
  •     Keep healthy snacks on hand while studying. This will keep you from hitting the vending machine, and help keep you alert and focused.
  •     Join an intramural sport or hit the campus gym a few times a week. This will help you stay energized and feeling healthy.
  •     Avoid the “all-you-can-eat” cafeteria lines. Portion size is a huge part of staying healthy; these buffet-style dining halls can encourage overeating.
  •     Drink plenty of water. Carry a water bottle in your backpack, and take one to class whenever possible.
