Learn ways to eat well and build stronger immunity with healthy practices.

Student Storyteller Simran Kaur discusses the challenges and solutions of balancing her wellness practices with her academic responsibilities.

I don’t know about anyone else, but in between my assignments and tests – all while living in lockdown, my healthy habits had gone a little haywire. I felt tired, lacked energy and had a foggy brain. I was looking to make a change, so I took ‘Creating a Strong Foundation of Health’ by Nutritional & Mindset Specialists Angie and Eve from A.E.Coaching Inc.

There I learned about holistic health; it isn’t any one thing, there are four pillars of wellbeing to maintain.

  • Sleep Hygiene (7-8 hours a night)
  • Hydration (2 litres or half a gallon a day)
  • Movement (exercise at least 30 minutes a day)
  • Nutrition (small meals every 2 hours)

When it comes to nutrition, I learned ways to plan ahead, eat well and build stronger immunity.

  • Aim to eat the rainbow (all coloured vegetables)
  • Steer clear of processed, fried or fast foods
  • Prep food in advance
  • Focus on simple recipes
  • Cook extra food so you have leftovers for the next day
  • Read labels whenever possible nutrients
  • Frozen foods are equally nutritious as fresh vegetables

Attending these sessions, along with offerings from Counselling and the Wellness Centre, provided a fresh perspective that helped me feel more motivated to care for my health and well-being.
