My Beat: "The Healthy College Student"

"A man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools."
- A Spanish Proverb.

Lets face it, college students get a bad rap when it comes to staying healthy. This includes eating healthy, having a healthy sleep schedule and finding the time to exercise. We are all guilty of it. Who has not pulled off staying up all night to finish the paper for the 8 a.m. class, or eaten last night's pizza because it is in arms reach? It happens. When we get to college our schedules tend to be strange and our habits tend to change.

This beat will be targeted specifically toward the health of the Towson University college student. This includes every facet of the individuals health, mental and physical. It will provide tips and encourage the average Towson student to make small, incremental changes in order to encourage health.

It will include healthy eating habits: good places to find good meals for a small price so you and avoid the pizza. It will show the small ways that a student can utilize all of the activities offered through the university. It will also provide information from the experts on campus about staying healthy. The advice and information will be simple and it will be given from a student who knows it is easier to take the convenient road, not necessarily the healthy one.
