What are some ways to stay healthy on campus? Everyone around me is getting sick!

2 Answers
Stay active, find vitamin C sources and wash your hands. These all seem self-explanatory, but there is a reason they are the go to answers. If you stay active, you will keep things moving around in your body, prevent congestion, and, if you can exercise outside, then you can avoid the stuffy dorm rooms. Try not to be sedentary because then you are just asking the germs to come to you. You can get vitamin C from over-the-counter things like Zicam, or just from oranges, peppers, kale, broccoli, guava, kiwi, grapefruit, strawberries, cantaloupe and brussels sprouts. Needless to say, there are plenty of options. So, as usual, eat your fruits and veggies and exercise, then you will avoid the campus "plagues" as they are so affectionately called.
Take Airborne (chewable tablets or the fizzy drink mix)! That stuff saves lives and keeps you from getting sick. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables with deep pigments (more antioxidants and vitamin C) and drink water as often as possible. Additionally, don't skimp on sleep and remember to engage in self-care so that your body doesn't get worn out. A worn out/tired body is an easier target for illness compared to a well-rested body.
