As we enter the fifth week of our campaign to help students take steps to achieve and maintain good mental wellbeing we are looking at the final step in the NHS’s 5 Steps to Mental Wellbeing – Be Mindful.
The campaign is exploring ideas and things to try which may make you feel happier, more positive and able to get the most from life and your studies.
Mindfulness can be practised by anyone, at any age, in any place.
It is easy to rush through life without stopping to notice much. Mindfulness can help you to stop, enjoy life more and understand yourself better. It can help you to reconnect with your body and take notice of sensations like sights, sounds, smells and tastes.
Our student Nikita has been giving mindfulness a go as part of her mission to complete the NHS Steps to Mental Wellbeing. Check out how she got on here >
The first step to mindfulness is to take notice of your thoughts, feelings, body sensations and what’s happening around you. Even small changes will help to interrupt your ‘autopilot’ mode and may give you a new perspective on simple, day-to-day things.
Over the next few weeks we will be encouraging all students to try out the NHS’s Five Steps to Mental Wellbeing. Keep an eye on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts as well as our Student News pages for ideas around how you can get involved.
If at any time during your studies you feel you might benefit from some extra support, we are here to help.
We offer a wellbeing drop-in between 11am-3pm every weekday in the Alsop Building for practical and pastoral support in a confidential space. You don’t need to book – simply come along to the Student Welfare Advice and Guidance Information Point on the ground floor of the Alsop Building (on University Square).
