Freshers’ week takes energy

Alcohol consumption, a change of diet, busy schedules and meeting new people are all factors that can cause fresher’s flu, which can lay new students low for at least a week. Symptoms include lack of energy, tiredness, fever, sore throat, headaches and general discomfort.

FocusA new energy drink called Focus can provide the energy, vitamins, anti-oxidants and amino acids needed to survive freshers’ week and help avoid fresher’s flu. The energy boost from a single ‘shot’ lasts for up to five hours.

Other tips on surviving fresher’s week include:

  • Attend the Freshers’ Fair – it’s a great chance to join clubs, meet fellow students, and get freebies and NUS discounts
  • Facebook Friends! Find your flat mates, join the Uni facebook group and create events – it’s a great way of making friends, sharing photos and finding out more about the Uni and the surrounding area
  • Budget! Don’t spend all the student loan buying bar rounds in freshers’ week – The loan needs to last until next term. Set a weekly budget and try to stick to it. Things to include in your budget – any bills, shopping, printing costs and of course, socialising.

FOCUS Energy Shots are available to buy from Holland and Barratt, Budgens, Londis, and online from Nutricentre (www.nutricentre.com) and Tree of Life (www.treeoflife.com).

PR support for Focus is provided by Nobull Communications.
