Our wellbeing activities
Planning for Success
Perfectionism & Resilience
Dissertation: Done is Better Than Perfect
How to Manage Your Dissertation
Run by the Student Success Advisors, this workshop will provide you with understanding on how to effectively manage and prioritise your dissertation.
As recent HWU graduates, the Student Success Advisors have experience of completing a dissertation or project from different subject areas, so can provide you with some useful tips and advice. This Power Hour will address planning and structuring, how to approach primary research, creating personal deadlines, managing stress, and staying motivated.
Time Out Tea
This is an informal opportunity to meet other students and enjoy some afternoon tea.
Come along, explore and have a look around Oriam with the Wellbeing Centre and the Sports Union. See what activities are available, walk the mile of Oriam and have some refreshments, if you are feeling active you can even have a go at some of the activities the Sports Union has to offer.
Coping With Presentation Nerves
Strategies to help make presenting less of an ordeal. It is common for people to get nervous at the thought of giving a presentation. Standing up and speaking in front of a group can cause anxiety and mind blanks. This session will equip you with some strategies to manage nerves and help you overcome the fears associated with speaking in public.
Join us for this fun and interactive workshop where we will use rhythm and voice to create some great sounds. No prior experience or musical ability required. Opportunity to find out further information about music opportunities at HWU.
Do you find that you often feel stressed, anxious or on edge? Do you tend to find yourself preoccupied, thinking about the future or going over past events in your mind? Would you like to try a difference approach to managing worry, stress or runaway thoughts? Then you might find the mindfulness group helpful. This is a small, friendly group which aims to help you manage and overcome some of these issues by looking at how to be more mindful in our lives. If you would like more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Did you know that picking up a pencil to sketch or doodle can relieve the symptoms of stress and anxiety? Wellbeing arts is becoming a popular way to try and help reduce any stress or anxious thoughts. Join the wellbeing team for the opportunity to take an hour to relax and draw. This is not an art exam and everyone of all abilities is welcome to come along.
