Start midterms with a healthy you!
It's no surprise to anyone at Cal that midterms=stress=no life outside of studying. As hard as it may sound, it's also a time to be a little selfish because doing well in your classes depends on you! Everyone is different, but if you can find something that works for you, stick with it. A good way to help your body stay healthy is to eat bright colors (fruits and veggies). If you're anything like me...I'm not very fond of veggies, but there are also many out there that I've never tried. For the past month I have been picking a new vegetable at the grocery store every week and trying it out. So try to be adventurous with what you're putting into your body and who knows...maybe you'll have a new favorite veggie. If you're not into trying new foods, try going to a new group/class workout at the rsf. You don't have to commit to an entire hour at the rsf if you don't want to; they also offer 30minute classes or you can check out a volleyball or basketball or racquetball court.
Another thing to note is to stay warm! This weather is cold and wet, making it more susceptible for you to catch a cold. The common cold is caused by many viruses (mainly human rhinovirus which replicates at 30C) and bacteria; which are transmitted via the respiratory route (if you're wondering I learned this in public health 142...it's a great class). So make sure you let someone know to please cover their coughs or sneezes for the sake of your and your peer's health. Overall, be a healthy and happy you! It'll keep you positive and ready to face those midterms!
