3. Don't skip meals

With back-to-back classes and running to the library for studying, you might miss your meals and this might be harmful to the body because the body may go into starvation mode and your metabolism will slow down. To avoid this, grab foods that you can eat on the run and you'll have the energy to keep going.

4. Stay active

Indulge in some physical activity like walking, running, swimming or cycling. These exercises have numerous health benefits including boosting up your brain that further helps in releasing feel-good chemicals, thus fighting stress and depression .

6. Avoid studying all night
