Video: Staying Healthy While at School

With all the germs going around schools, it can be hard to stay healthy. Here are some tips from student vlogger Jordan-Paige to help you avoid getting sick.

It’s easy for germs and sicknesses to spread at schools with students packed in classrooms together, especially during the winter. If you aren’t learning remotely and are attending class in person, you need to make sure you’re taking precautions (especially with COVID-19) to make sure you stay healthy. Check out these tips from student vlogger Jordan-Paige to learn how she stays healthy while surrounded by other students.

How to stay healthy at school

Keeping yourself healthy may seem like a no-brainer, but sometimes we forget about the simple things we can do to prevent sickness. After all, we don’t often think about getting sick until we’re already there. Here are some preventative measures you can take in your day-to-day life to avoid getting sick:

  • Take your vitamins
  • Drink tea to help your immune system and anxiety
  • Use hand sanitizer
  • Use a face mask if you’re sick or in public (whether it’s COVID-19 or a cold, wearing a mask can help you and others stay healthy)
  • Get plenty of rest and sleep
  • Find ways to manage your stress levels
  • Don’t drink other people’s drinks
  • Wash your hands

Sometimes we can’t prevent illness altogether, and you may catch a cold or stomach bug here or there—but by taking these steps, you’re less likely to catch something, and you can help slow the spread of sickness to others. Right now, it’s more important than ever to be cautious when it comes to spreading germs, especially in classrooms. Stay healthy!

CollegeXpress has helped me learn about an abundance of scholarships available to me and my situation. I was able to do research for colleges in my best interest with your website. I've had multiple colleges email me and offer me multiple scholarships and things of that nature because of this website! Thank you so much for uploading scholarships I didn’t even know existed, even if my life took a huge turn and I wasn’t able to go to college straight out of high school. CollegeXpress helped me a lot in high school to be even more motivated to get into my dream college (which I did, by the way). I'm looking forward to using the materials CollegeXpress has kindly provided me for free to look for scholarships to help pay for college.

CollegeXpress has helped me find so many scholarships that fit me. They match me to colleges I have specific interest in to make searching for colleges way easier and more efficient. CollegeXpress refers me to schools that have my major of interest and backup schools if I want to change my mind. CollegeXpress also gives out their own scholarships, so you have even more of a chance at gaining multiple scholarships. This website has helped me de-stress from the pressure of not being able to afford college, [of finding] what schools are right for me, and how to find easy access to scholarships that most people never knew existed.

CollegeXpress helped me by providing me with many scholarship opportunities and information about universities I want to attend. What I love about CollgeXpress is how it provides a variety of information, and as the first child attending a university next year, it has been very essential and helpful. I’m so grateful for this because the information provided by CollegeXpress has also helped me see that there are so many college opportunities, and it always informs me by email. In other words, CollegeXpress has been like a guide for me as a future college student.

CollegeXpress gave me options of schools with my major and from there I was able to pick what was most important to me in a school. Everything was so organized that I could see all the information I needed.

CollegeXpress has tremendously helped me in my search for financial aid opportunities as I enter my college career. It is easy to navigate and quickly narrowed down scholarships that I could apply for. Being awarded the scholarship will greatly help me in my finances regarding books and tuition. Thank you for this opportunity. Without CollegeXpress, it would have been more difficult to apply. I would recommend this site to everyone!
