Hello, welcome, it is good to see you here!

We all take steps to look after our physical health, whether it is eating healthy or simply brushing our teeth. But when was the last time you took care of your mental wellbeing? We are inviting you to take a pledge to look after your mental wellbeing,ย using the โ€˜5 ways to wellbeingโ€™ as your guide:

  1. Connect with the people around me
  2. Be active in a way that suits me and that I enjoy
  3. Take notice and be mindful of my surroundings
  4. Keep learning new skills and developing myself
  5. Give what I can whether it is my time or simply a random act of kindness

While a focus on these steps has been shown to have a positive impact on mental wellbeing, how you apply them to your life is up to you!

For ideas on easy steps you could take select one of the 5 ways above or make your pledge now…

What are the 5 ways to wellbeing?

I pledge to look after my mental wellbeing in the same I would my physical health.

I pledge to promote and maintain my mental well being by spending quality time with my family whilst learning and developing myself professionally and academically. I'll stay connected by reaching out to fellow students and tutors. Be active in a way i enjoy and incorporate it with family time. Take notice of my surroundings and be mindful that there is life other than a laptop. Seek support if needed but also give support.

I pledge to involve meditation into my routine, as it is said to have many benefits like relaxation and can make you feel destressed. I would have said I would pledge to connect more but due to current situation this is something I do alot.
