Staying well as a student does not have to be complicated or expensive. There is joy to be found in our everyday life, you just need to take time to spot it!
Here are some easy, cheap and accessible ideas that can keep your mind well whilst at university…
Disconnect – take a walk around campus without your headphones. Unplug from your phone and listen to the real world for half an hour. The real world of nature, of laughter, overhearing hearty chit chat. There is casual magic in the simplicity of being present and in touch with the immediate world.
Slow down – Take a few minutes to notice the beauty in a fleeting moment. Whether that be a rainbow hovering amongst a rain storm, an oddly shaped cloud or even a lop-sided flower. There is beauty in everything – you just have to find it!
Helping a friend out – Is one of your housemates struggling with their workload or having difficulty adjusting to university? Offer a welcoming ear and stay well together.
