Maintaining a healthy lifestyle isn’t always easy, and fitting it in around a busy schedule and on a student budget can be tricky but here are a few of our tips to make staying fit a reality.
Why not take advantage of the excellent sports facilities at Lancaster University Sports Centre.
Running is a great low cost way to get fit. If this is something you enjoy then why not consider joining Lancaster and Morecambe Athletics Club or if you prefer running on your own then why not check out map my run for ideas and favourite routes around the Lancaster area.
If you enjoy tennis then why not check out Lancaster Tennis Club . The club has three astro turf courts based on Lune Road about 1/2 mile from Lancaster railway station and is part of Lancaster Sports and Social Club, with access to the main Clubhouse facilities and bar as well as their own small clubhouse.
If you fancy yourself as the next Sir Chris Hoy or Victoria Pendleton then why not check out Lancaster Cycling Club
There is no more relaxing way to wind down than a game of golf, although I guess that depends how competitive you are! If you enjoy golf then Forest Hills golf course is the place to go, set in stunning countryside and only a short distance from Lancaster University this pay and play course is ideal.
Eat well and feel healthy
Boost your energy and concentration levels in time for exams.
Did you know that what you eat can have an impact on your academic performance? Poor eating habits can affect your memory and make it harder to concentrate, and have been linked to lower grades. On the other hand, if you eat well, you’ll have more energy, better concentration levels and be less likely to get ill.
We will be adding some of our favourite recipes to this section shortly so keep you eyes peeled!
