Must know about health

Study Breaks
Break up your study time with an activity. Wear your jogging shoes to the library and go on a run or to the gym from there. Sit-ups, push-ups, squats and jumping rope are other quick alternatives. Intramural Sports Joining a team is a great way to keep sports in your life and meet other active people. Fraternities and sororities often field teams. You can also meet people in the dorms or in one of your classes and form a team.

Active Friends
Find other people who like to get outside. Then you can motivate each other to go hiking, biking, or even study in the park.

Walking Workouts
You're probably getting a workout walking around campus without even realizing it! Carrying your books is an easy and effective way to exercise. Be sure you wear your backpack evenly; don't sling it over one shoulder or you could end up with bad posture.

Freshman 15
Stay away from carbo overloads, too many sweets, and late-night snacking. If you have to eat something when you're studying, reach for a piece of fruit or a sandwich cut in quarters, rather than the usual suspects -- chips, chocolate or pizza.
Morning vs. Night
Neither time is better to work out. If you like to get it out of the way in the morning, then get up early and exercise. If you like to work out later in the day, just make sure you stick to it. It's easy to procrastinate in the afternoon and take a nap or watch TV instead. Night workouts are okay as long as they don't affect your sleep. If you find you're having trouble sleeping, work out an hour earlier. Basically, the key is to find what works best for you.

How to Treat a Nosebleed?
If you thought nosebleeds were kid stuff, think again. Sure, getting knocked in the noggin by a foul ball can still spur a bleeder, but so can frigid temperatures, allergies, or high-altitude vacations. If you get a gusher, here's what to do.

Sit down and tilt your head forward slightly. (Don't lie down or tip your head back. The blood may run down your throat, making you gag.) Use your thumb and index finger to pinch your nose closed just above the flare of the nostrils for ten minutes. Don't let go, even to check whether the blood's still oozing. If you're still bleeding, pinch your nose for another ten-minute stint. Try holding an ice pack against the bridge of your nose to constrict underlying blood vessels. Once the bleeding has stopped, don't blow your nose, strain, or bend over to lift anything heavy,all of which can trigger an encore,for the next 12 hours.

If bleeding continues for more than 20 minutes, go to the emergency room. A doctor can stop the flow by applying a topical sealant, such as silver nitrate. See your physician if you get nosebleeds frequently. Although most are harmless, roughly one in ten signals an underlying condition such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or hardening of the arteries.
