Manage Your Wellbeing
University can be busy and stressful at times, and this can affect your wellbeing, particularly as you settle into your studies. We all have strategies for coping with ups and downs in life and it is important to continue using and revising these approaches at University too. By doing this, you will help support and maintain your positive wellbeing and that of those around you. This is an important part of getting the most out of your university journey.
Your guide to 5 Ways of Wellbeing
The '5 Ways to Wellbeing' are 5 distinct actions to help improve personal wellbeing: connect, be active, keep learning, take notice and give. The University is promoting these steps as a great tool for students and staff within our community to enhance their own and each other's wellbeing.
Engaging with our '5 Ways to Wellbeing' guide before you arrive will help you think about what wellbeing means to you now, how you deal with challenges, and how you will engage with your own wellbeing while at the University.
This guide addresses each of the 5 ways to wellbeing in turn and provides some examples of what each of these could look like at the University. It also includes information about student support services that can ease your transition into the University, offer development opportunities and provide spaces to reflect and learn.
