All the work we do in school shouldn’t affect our diet

Although students are sometimes faced with a busy work load, our diet should not be effected even though Cerritos College doesn’t exactly have a lot of ways of helping us health wise.

Sure, it is easier to walk out of class and over to the food court to order a burrito from Taco Bell within the possible 15 or 20 minutes before heading back to another class, but that doesn’t have to be the only way.

If you find yourself staying here for a long period of time during the day and are constantly in the library studying, finding some time for a decent lunch wouldn’t hurt.

With only four choices of food in the food court it is quite simple to just choose one, sit down with your friends and eat before you move on with your day.

If you only have one or two classes and are finding out that you do have time to go home and make a lunch or you can go to a nice restaurant and eat, keep up that habit and see if you can help someone who is in a different situation.

This school is full of convenience with the elbow room located near classrooms, as well as three Frantones locations on campus.

Just because it’s convenient doesn’t mean it’s better.

Cerritos College’s food choices aren’t the only problem.

The parking lot is known to be crowded, it’s understandable to not want to drive 15 minutes down the street to grab Subway and then come back and find another spot.

Subway is a healthier choice and if you care about your diet and have the time to go, it seems worth it.

Students also can receive education on the subject of health from the Student Health Services.

If you find that you are experiencing a tough work load and you don’t have time for a decent healthy meal the Student Health Services can help.

The help may not be as easy to get as a tasty burger from Chicago Harvs but it’s there and it’s worth it.

Because some say with a healthier body comes a healthier mind and that might just help out with your grades, and who wouldn’t want that?
