Balanced Diet

You can embrace the diverse food culture in Australia but also focus on maintaining a balanced diet. Try to incorporate a variety of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats into your meals. Furthermore, you can limit consumption of fast food and sugary snacks, and opt for homemade or healthier options whenever possible.

Stay Active

You should spend time exploring the beautiful landscapes and outdoor activities that Australia offers. Then you can engage in regular physical activities such as walking, hiking, swimming, or playing sports as a way to keep active.

Manage Stress

Studying abroad can be both exciting and challenging, so you can practice stress-reduction techniques such as meditation, deep breathing exercises, yoga, or spending time in nature. You also can reach out to support services offered by your university if you feel overwhelmed.

Get Enough Sleep

Adequate sleep is essential for both physical and mental well-being. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep each night will help you feel refreshed and energized for your studies and daily activities.

Connect with Others

Building social connections with fellow students and locals can positively impact your well-being. You should spend time joining clubs or organizations, attending social events, and making an effort to engage with people from different backgrounds.

Prioritize Mental Health

Studying abroad can bring about various challenges and emotions. It’s essential to prioritize your mental health. Seek counseling services offered by your university if you need someone to talk to or require additional support.

By following these tips and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, you can make the most of your study abroad experience in Australia while nurturing your physical and mental well-being.

I trust Allianz Care since it is one of the largest insurance companies in Australia, with the medical centres where I only have to pay for what is left from insurance support. (no need to claim later). Besides, those centres are located at the centre of the city, close to schools. Very convenient, right? Credits to Allianz Care for providing reliable medical centres for health check and treatments.

I’ve been living with homestay family for 2 years. I’m now 19, I can move out but I don’t want to leave my host, who has become my family. It feels like I’ve met my second family. Thanks OSHCstudents for sending me to this homestay!

I realised how important insurance was when I started living in Australia. There I switched to using Allianz Care instead of the previous service. Allianz Care is extraordinarily good in its consulting service and customer care. I’ve learned a lot about Australian health care, also I was consulted with mental issues and how to live a healthy lifestyle. I am very happy now.

Thanks to Allianz Care, every time I claimed my medical receipts it processed much more quickly and easily than I expected. I was initially a bit concerned since Allianz Care is more expensive than other insurance companies, but now I can ensure that it is totally worth the money.
