Can a Student’s Day-to-Day Be Luxurious?
Health, welfare and study capacity are some of the things that are easily forgotten until something goes wrong. A student, like any other human being, is a mental, physical and social whole – and each part is needed. Control over your life and a balanced day-to-day routine support your studies. If you take care of your welfare, eat well, exercise, spend time with friends and sleep every now and then, studies usually go well too.
However, according to studies, university students are often exhausted, under stress and unsure about their future. This is no wonder considering the big and often unpredictable changes that come with starting a whole new phase in life, and beginning studies at university is certainly that. Student life often means moving to a new home, financial insecurity and a total revolution of social circles. Despite all these challenges, a student’s day-to-day life can be, if not luxurious, then at least really, really good.
