Yes. I hate to admit it but freshers flu most certainly exists. No doubt if you have just started uni or are at uni, the first few weeks eventually will come down on you like a tonne of bricks. Runny nose, muggy head, sore throat and usually a terrible cough. I'm sure two weeks ago I used the term 'everything hurts and I'm dying' MULTIPLE times. 

Luckily for myself I collaborated with the company VOOST who create dissolvable, flavoursome vitamins and minerals. Getting rid of the hassle of having to swallow tablets, keeping you hydrated and giving your body the right dose of nutrients to keep it happy and healthy! This has made it convenient and helpful in the past month where my life has been all over the place and I probably haven't been getting all the essential vitamins and minerals which my body needs.

With having VOOT's vitamins convientially on hand, it inspired me to give you my own personal guide into surviving freshers and looking after your body (while still enjoying yourself)


Like I said above using VOOSTS vitamins every day has really helped me in getting my health back up. They have a whole range for whatever your body is needing or may be lacking. I have been specifically using the vitamins B complex which as a Vegan is really handy. The benefits of this are to help give the body energy, reducing fatigue and boosting the immune system. I have also been using the vitamin C which again helps boost the bodies immune system, along with protection against free radicals and the normal formation of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, skin, and teeth.


I cannot express enough how valuable sleep becomes in the first few weeks of uni. Literally it's so easy to just keep going and going until you reach a point of completely flaking out. So when you can get sleep in there! Get your sleep!


Especially if you're drinking a lot of alcohol you want to make sure you are keeping yourself hydrated. Make sure you are drinking enough water throughout the day if you are planning to go out later than night. Also make sure you get lots the next morning!!!


Not gonna lie these have been a complete life saver for me! Trust me, use them! It'll help make any symptoms slightly more bearable. 


As much as you may be out of your usual routine getting in some form of exercise is going to help give you a boost and help your immune system. Get yourself outside, in the fresh air! You'd be surprised just how much a walk does you the world of good.


High stress levels are only going to decrease you immune system and affect your mental and physical health. Try to keep stress levels lower by adding things such as yoga and meditation to your routine.
