Keep active at university

Keeping active has always been my way of maintaining my well-being, with football being the sport I play at least 3 times a week. I do also attend the gym now and then as well, but I feel football has always been the thing to keep my mind occupied and my body healthy.

When I started at university, staying active was a lot more difficult as I had to keep up with the heavy work load. As a result I didnโ€™t get as much chance to enjoy my football. It didnโ€™t take me long to figure out even with the mass amount of work and strain on my life, it is important to keep physically active.

It is very easy as a university student to fall into being lazy, but that doesnโ€™t have a positive outcome on well-being. Now as a second year I play football with friends rather than as part of the sports team, and this means it is less of a strain on me, allowing me to keep it as a fun activity.
