Just how well are students taking care of themselves in school? We asked Niche users a few questions about health and exercise, and here are the responses.
- On a scale of 1 to 5 (1 being low, 5 being high), 43 percent of Niche users rate their energy level in college as being a 4.
Tip: For extra energy, eat these energy foods.
- Thirty seven percent of Niche users say they typically exercise in the evening.
Fun fact: A study claims that afternoon exercise can boost a workout performance.
- Almost half of Niche users report exercising two to four times a week.
- However, only 22 percent of Niche users report having a very regular workout routine in college.
Tip: Having a set time that you work out (whether it’s morning, noon, or night) makes it easier to be more consistent with your workout routine.
- Niche users are early birds! On a college week day, 61 percent report waking up before 8 a.m.
Tip: Don’t hit the snooze button! Going back to sleep can mess with your sleep cycle.
- Fifty-two percent of Niche users say they go to sleep between 10 p.m. and 12 a.m. on a college weekday.
Fun fact: A study says that irregular sleeping times can lead to behavioral problems in children.
- Forty-one percent of Niche users rate the healthiness of their eating habits as “average.”
Tip: Always eat breakfast, as it will keep you from overeating throughout the day.
Just like midterms and finals are good evaluations of your work in classes, sometimes it’s good to do the same for your health from time to time, assessing your strengths, weaknesses, and where you can improve.
