Today, I wanted to talk about a very important topic: how little, healthy habits make a healthy life, especially when you are in Med school. If you are one of these Med students who can manage to be super effective with their studies, while hitting the gym daily and sleeping 8 hours every night, then this post is probably not for you.
This post is for all of you who have to spend endless hours sitting and studying, before you realize that your back hurts. And then you realize that you didn’t eat healthily, didn’t drink more than 1 glass of water the whole day and -obviously- didn’t have time to stand up and walk around a bit -let alone work out.

Myrtos beach, Kefalonia
Hola chicas y chicos!
I am spending my Summer holidays on my island, Kefalonia. It is a beautiful Greek island, located between Greece and Italy. It belongs to the Seven Islands and it has a total population of around 36000 -my town, Argostoli, has less than 10000 people. It seems quite small, eh? However, I can guarantee you that the people here are so loud, that it makes up for their small number. The island is full of life and energy. I grew up and spent all my childhood and teenage years here, till I turned 18 -at that point, I left to pursue all my academic goals and get to know the world. Currently, it’s the 9th year that I am away. I don’t come back often (I guess twice a year is not considered to be “often”), however, every time I come back, I try to make the best out of my time here and enjoy moments with my family, as well as go around the island and enjoy its numerous beauties!
The previous week, we visited 3 of my favourite spots on the island: the famous Myrtos beach, Assos and Fiskardo. I took many photos, and right now I will share with you my favourite ones, and give you a taste of Kefalonia.
Come with me, then!

I may not be the wisest person in town, but these past 5 years in Med school I have been challenged physically and emotionally enough, in order to make some golden rules of survival. So I thought, why not share them with others, on my Blog?
We are all together in the boat called “Med school”, and by sharing our wisdom, we can help each other face all kinds of difficult situations. Besides, when you see that others go through the same things as you do, you get this very warm and nice feeling that you are not alone in this.
Here I go!
