Based on the densely populated tables and computers at MSE Library you may think that the only way to achieve at Hopkins is through countless hours spent studying. Think again! A 2008 study from the University of Minnesota’s Boynton Health Service found that students with unhealthy behaviors had significantly lower GPAs. Additionally, a 2009 study from The College of New Jersey concluded, "students’ health and lifestyle decisions have the ability to influence their academic success". Turns out, a great way to get ahead of your peers may be to put greater focus on your health and well-being!
Whether decreasing stress, getting more sleep, or increasing physical activity, healthy behaviors have a huge impact on your performance as a student. Based on 2009 ACHA-NCHA data, the majority of factors that Hopkins students rank highest for negative social and academic impact were health related (lack of sleep, stress/anxiety, cold/flu/sore throat, and pregnancy to name a few!).
