  • Buy health insurance, practice good health habits

    Filed Under: Health Insurance
There is an old saying: trust your neighbor, but lock your house. That is, good habits and safety precautions should always go hand in hand. International student insurance is like that too. It will take care of your medical expenses if needed, but that doesn't mean you start neglecting your health.

This cliché has been used many times, and in many places: health is wealth. Some basic healthy habits will go a long way in making your time in the USA as a student more fruitful, and fun
  1. Avoid obvious bad habits like smoking and excessive alcohol

  2. Too much junk food has got to go too

  3. Some exercise has never done anyone harm. If time is a constraint and regular exercise isn't possible, try small things like avoiding the elevator and taking stairs instead; or walking home in the evening.

  4. Computers are the new health-hazard. Avoid working too long in front of one. Take a break, even if it's for two minutes, and come back.

  5. Drink lots of water. Yes, it's pretty obvious, but still worth a mention.

  6. Take seasonal flu shots, and other vaccination if recommended by the government/university.

  7. Sleep well, wake up early.

Enjoy your healthy stay in the USA. Commenting is not available in this channel entry.
