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 now 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 measure 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 yourself 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 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!

CollegeXpress has helped me with the college application process. The tips and tricks for important essays were so helpful. I also gained useful knowledge about college life. Even though I’m fully online, CollegeXpress has helped me develop a sense of how college is in person. The experiences from college students that were featured on their Instagram page have shown the good, the bad, and the “secret” life on campus from a reliable perspective. Not to mention, they relieved my feelings of anxiety about the workload. I can now understand how it can be stressful, but it takes self-control and willpower to get assignments completed on time and with quality.

I've used CollegeXpress quite a bit as a senior, particularly for colleges and scholarships, so it's been a very big asset in that respect! I would recommend it to anyone looking to pursue a college education, especially seniors! This scholarship will help me achieve my goals in ways I couldn't have before, and I know that there are opportunities like that for everyone on the website and in the magazines!
