Tip #2 – Don’t Neglect Down-Time

With such a fast-paced and busy lifestyle during Freshers’ week, you’re going to need some quality down-time to re-charge. Pairing breathing exercises with a relaxing fragrance is guaranteed to help calm your nerves and make the week more bearable. A spritz of Mio Skincare Liquid Yoga Homeopathic Space Spray followed by an effective breathing exercise will leave you on full charge. Place one hand on your chest and the other on your stomach and take a deep breath in through your nose. Aim to take six to ten deep breaths per minute to create a sense of calmness from within.

Tip #3 – Food is Your Friend

Eating the right foods can regulate the production of your stress hormones, preventing nervousness and panicking. Packing your diet with foods such as fruit, fish, cheese, dark chocolate and whole grain carbohydrates will not only improve your mood but also give your body a health boost. Adding The Happy Molecule from Fountain to your daily intake will help and it’s pineapple flavoured… who doesn’t love pineapple?! It could be the health kick you need to avoid the dreaded freshers’ flu too!

Tip #4 – Confidence is Key

The key to this tip is to act confident, even if you’re not. Doing simple things such as leaving your door open whilst unpacking and sharing drinks or cake should leave an impression that you’re friendly and approachable. Once you’ve introduced yourself to one person, go round together to meet new people, it makes it just that little bit easier!

Don’t forget to have some hangover cures up your sleeve ready for the morning after all those freshers’ nights out!
