As the new school year begins, students are heading into the classroom — in person or virtually — under unprecedented circumstances. Good health is more important than ever nowadays.
After weeks or months of down time, students need to get back into a routine again. School days often mean fast-paced mornings, fully-scheduled days and homework-filled evenings.
You need to start out feeling your best. Finding ways to stay healthy during the school year might be challenging, but it's not impossible. The right tools can give students the power to make health a vital part of each day.
Here are some products to help you stay at the top of your classroom game.
Hand Sanitizer For A Healthy School Year
Hand sanitizer is a necessity these days. While many classrooms and cafeterias stock bottles of sanitizer for students' use, it's a good idea to carry a small bottle just in case a common source is empty or out of reach.
Personal-size hand sanitizers are widely available at supermarkets, drug stores and retail stores. Some are small enough to fit in a pants pocket or on a keychain.
Keep a bottle of hand sanitizer on your desk so you'll remember to use it periodically during the day. Find a scent that soothes or energizes you, and your hand sanitizer plays a dual role in keeping you healthy and happy.
Supplements For A Healthy School Year
Nutritional supplements complement a healthy lifestyle by supporting digestive health, bone health and energy levels. Students of different ages, activity levels and nutritional requirements can find the right supplements for their health needs.
Watch for sales and specials to save money on favorite products. A Unify health coupon can help students stick to a tight budget.
Healthy Snacks For A Healthy School Year
Breaks between online classes and lengthy waits at the bus stop are good times to grab a healthy snack to help you power through the day. Don't be tempted by sugary snacks at the vending machine.
Be prepared to curb your hunger by packing your lunch box or desk drawer with energy-boosting choices like nuts, fruit and granola. If you forget to bring a snack or can't pack it with you, look for healthy options in the vending machine such as peanut butter crackers, protein bars or dried fruit.
Water Bottle For A Healthy School Year
Students know that daytime dehydration leads to fatigue and sluggishness. No one likes the 2 p.m. energy slump.
Carrying a water bottle is the most convenient way to stay hydrated and boost your energy level. Water bottles of all sizes and kinds are widely available at sporting-goods stores, retail outlets and drug stores.
Choose from flip tops or screw tops, bright metal colors or clear plastics, small or large sizes — the choices are many. Even if the hallway water fountain is closed or the online lecture is long, you'll be glad to have a drink handy.
Planner For A Healthy School Year
A planner is a vital tool for any student because planning ahead reduces stress to a minimum. Keeping track of homework assignments, virtual meetings and test dates is easier when you can view your schedule at a glance.
Maybe a paper planner works for you. Notebook-style planners are usually organized by week with lots of room to jot down important times and dates.
If you have a Smartphone, online planners and calendars are available. You can set reminders and notifications for meetings, class times and assignment due dates. Usually, online calendars can be printed out if you need a hard copy of your schedule.
Some students may prefer a combination of paper and digital planning. No matter what tool you use, be sure to enter all important events so you never forget a test or meeting.
No matter what your classroom looks like this year, it's time for a fresh start. Work healthy habits into your day by using the tools that help you perform your best. When you're healthy, you can begin the school year by putting your best foot forward.
