% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Health is wealth. It is a vital and integral part of our lives. The importance of health cannot remain unspoken. From getting a full attendance in class to getting good grades in college, to attaining success in college life, health sure is a concern for all individuals in the society.
The phrase health education is a combination of two basic terms – health and education. Where health is only concerned with the physical, social, mental, and spiritual well-being of an individual, health education equips the individual with the knowledge and skills to achieve this. So basically, health education is a combination of all learning activities and social efforts designed to help people take greater control of their health and thus improving their health.
Health education is important more so to the college student in that colleges are the epicenter of so many health-related issues. From dealing with issues such as adapting to the new environment, stressing about your student loans, to trying to balance academics with your social life, the conditions at college puts the college student in a more vulnerable position.
According to recent statistics, the top five health conditions suffered by most college students are depression, eating disorders, anxiety, addiction, and suicidal thoughts. Therefore, equipping a student with the essential life hacks on how to cope with college life is monumental. Here are some of the reasons why health education is vital

The Merits of Health Education to College Students

The college student is probably the most misunderstood creature in the entire world. He or she is the most vulnerable still most turn a blind eye to this. From eating to sleeping, none of this is healthy for most of the college students. So how do we correct this? It is only through health education. The purpose of health education in the education systems is to ensure that the college student eats, sleep, and lives healthy to achieve their maximum potential in college. Below are some benefits of health education for college students.

• Better sleep

Better sleep is necessary and very important to college students. Recent research showed that good sleep should range from about 7-9 hours. Getting the proper amount of sleep leads to good moods, reduces stress, improves concentration, and reduces the chances of drowning in depression. Health education equips college students with healthier means of managing their stress level hence acquiring proper sleep.
To get good sleep, some students may opt for services such as the essay helper. These services not only do their assignments for them but also give them quality time for other activities such as sleep and socialization.

• Better nutrition

Eating disorders brought about by poor eating habits in college have been combated through health education. With how busy the college student is, he never gets the time to eat the proper foods. The college student needs essential nutrition to fuel his day to day activities. Health education equips the college student with that which is dispensable and what is not. From the proteins to the carbohydrates to the fats, health education tackles all aspects of nutrition and ensures that the student gets sufficient energy requirements for day to day activities.
Students get to know the importance of eating healthy leading to them practicing better nutrition. Some kinds of proteins which are rich in omega are crucial in improving the brain activities, one’s intellect and improves the general health of the student. It is only through health education that students get better nutrition leading them to live healthily.

• Better stress coping mechanisms

Health education has helped many college students cope with stress more healthily. Students get the knowledge and skills on which is the right mental state and which is not enabling them to salvage their mental health. Depression and other psychologic issues have been taken care of through health education. Most of the college students get help from either a counselor or a psychologist.
For example, a student may opt to exercise to relieve their stress, talk to a friend or participate in an outdoor activity rather than engage in substance abuse leading to an overall improvement in their physical, social and mental well-being.
Health institutions and their services are expensive. Therefore, it is paramount for us to fully integrate health education into our education systems to salvage the mental, physical, and social well-being of the college student and also to increase his overall productivity in college. Health is wealth, only with good health will you achieve good results.
