There are a lot of activities to get involved in throughout the year at University, many of which can help to improve your mental wellbeing. Wellbeing Week runs every year in the spring to highlight some of the things staff and students can get involved in, but you don’t need to wait until then to get going!
So here is a quick recap of some of the activities you might like to try which run all year round on campus:
Societies are a great way to meet like-minded people and enjoy activities away from your studies. Why not have the added bonus of doing some meditation or yoga in your spare time with our student societies?
Both meditation and yoga are great ways to practice mindfulness and build resilience which is important to maintaining your mental health.
The Counselling Service offer an online relaxation programme which can be streamed or downloaded anytime. Here you can find guided meditations to help with sleep problems, clear your mind and recharge when you have low energy.
It is important to keep moving throughout the day and our Walking for Health walks held twice a week are a perfect way to stretch your legs and get away from the library for an hour.
Join in on the FREE guided walks on and off campus on Monday at 1pm and on Wednesday at 12pm by meeting outside the main entrance of the Sports and Fitness Centre.
There is no need to book – just turn up and complete a Walker Registration Form (the first time you join) when you arrive.
Getting active is a great way to look after your wellbeing. Sport Liverpool’s Turn Up & Play programme gives students and staff the opportunity to take part in a fantastic range of activities, from badminton to futsal. There really is something for everyone to enjoy with no commitment or obligation to turn up every week.
Sport Liverpool also have a wide range of sports clubs – find out more on the Sport Liverpool webpages.
Indulge yourself with a treatment at the Sports Therapy & Massage Clinic, located in the Sports and Fitness Centre. The Clinic which offers treatments including sports massage and reflexology, is open Tuesday – Friday and is staffed by fully qualified massage therapists.
Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community and help improve your sense of wellbeing. Take a look on the Liverpool Guild of Students Volunteering Page to see some of the opportunities available to you locally.
