"When was the last time you worked out?". I remember as a freshmen in college, spending hours a day trying to stay on top of all my school work but never finding the time to work on my health. Aka, going to the gym. For some it's weeks since they've been to the gym and for some it's months but regardless for a lot of students it's not as frequent as it should be.

However, what most of these students don't know is there are organizations to help them get into a more active lifestyle. Joining fitness clubs and organizations can help students to become more accountable for taking care of their health, as well as gaining confidence and becoming a more motivated individual.

I tried every remedey and "cure" out there. The one I found the most effective was waking up, chugging water, getting some food in my system, and then working out. Yes, the last thing you would ever think about doing when hungover.
