Uses and abuses of laptops
Today many students own laptops, allowing them to take their work just about anywhere. Simply fold up your laptop, put it in a safe case, and go. But be wary: some studies have found risks – including higher rates of skin cancer – associated with setting your laptop directly on your lap. Instead, find a flat surface to rest your computer on.

Don’t overdo it
More and more, people find themselves surrounded by technology at all hours of the day, whether it’s using their computer for work or social networking, or staring at their iPhone for hours at a time. As great as technology can be, it’s good to find balance in life too. Be sure to drink plenty of water, especially in the morning, and get plenty of sleep at night. 

Harsh on the eyes
Today, many people find themselves sitting in front of a computer for hours at a time. But stare too long at the screen, and you may notice the accuracy of your vision diminishing. To protect your eyes, wear a pair of glasses meant for computer usage. Another tip? Eat carrots! They’re loaded with carotene, which is great for your eyesight.

Getting enough sleep
Sleep is a necessary part of your body’s daily cycle. It resets your internal clock, improving your memory, cognitive functioning and creativity. Getting enough sleep each day has also been shown to improve your immune system and reduce your risk for depression.

Low-tech solutions
Even if your life is cluttered with technology, don’t forget the bounty of the natural world. A banana, for instance, is packed with minerals and nutrients. Even the peel is full of potassium and magnesium and is known to dramatically whiten teeth. Simply run a piece of banana peel over your teeth for two minutes at a time. Try doing it a few times a week, and watch the results.
